YESSS, Mi Goreng in a cup! BEST. INDOMIE. NOODLES. EVER. Why isn’t this available in the states?
LOVE the built in strainer. Awesome idea! I said, AWESOME! A quick flip after the noodles are cooked and wah lah! Strained noodles.
Another thing that I’m finding very super awesome are the liquid sauces. love the easy mix.

Cup noodle chicken onion flavor from indomie!
It tastes liiiike…chicken. not so oniony. I’m going to go ahead and say that this is not my favorite Indomie flavor. For chicken cup o noodle, I’ll stick with Nissin for now. Glad I tried it!
I am loving all the variety that Indomie has to offer – who knew they had more than just mi goreng flavor? I think I need to crawl out from under my rock.

I thought to myself today…what is this obsession with food pictures? Why do I like to document food through photographs? I must admit that I do scroll through my own posts and admire the pictures that I’ve taken over the past year and a half. They make me hungry. As I write this post and look at the pictures of this tasty treat I’m reminded of how freakin’ good this flavor was! I got a big whiff of shrimp when I peeled back the lid. Inside the cup, on top of the noodles are dehydrated ingredients like thinly sliced tako (octopus), cabbage, dehydrated segments of imitation crab, green onion and egg puffs. All covered with white creamy seasoning powder. In went the hot water exactly to the fill line and the 3 minute wait began. My mouth watered as I waited in anticipation. When it was finally time, I peeled back the lid and savored my first bite. The milk seafood flavor is like a super light version of clam chowder, minus the clam flavor. More like crab chowder. You get extra bursts of flavor from the little egg puffs because they soak up the soup. With all the accoutrements, this meal in a cup turned out to be a very substantial lunch. Why do the Japanese torture us like this? Why don’t they release this delicious flavor here in the states for us to enjoy? Oooooh how I yearn for more. More Milk Curry too.

Introducing a new milk curry flavor for cup noodle lovers! Curry plus milk? Makes sense…sounded odd at first but Thai curries usually have coconut milk, so not so far out. It’s very interesting to me how the traditional Japanese diet doesn’t include dairy products like milk and cheese but when used, they have found a way to combine it with flavors that are strangely tasty. A few examples: camembert plus cod, tofu and cheese, curry and cheese. And yes, it does taste as good as it looks. The curry flavor is mild yet full of flavor and the texture of the noodles are soft, chewy and airy. The chunks of potato and soy add lots of texture and makes for a heartier meal. The Japanese are so clever! They think of everything, there’s a nifty pull tab at the bottom of the cup. Has this tab always been at the bottom of all the cup noodles and I just never noticed? I was very lucky to get my hands on this special treat as it’s not available in the states. Why are we always stuck with the boring flavors like shrimp and beef?
