    I usually cook mine for 2min, but I like mine with a little chew in them.

    The flavour I like most is two satay and one plain mixed.

    However, I'm now trying to make my own version so I can pack it for work (don't have a kitchen I can use any more).

    I bought some recently and noticed the new packaging, however the soy, chili and bumboo flavours are absolute shite compared to the older packaging (imo). But I also noticed that the packs I bought have 'export product' printed on them.. so I wonder if they 'water down' the flavours for western tastes?

    I'll be looking for the older packs, or at least non-export packs in my local asian grocery store, next time I go shopping.

    Pretty quick. Something like under 2mins since I don't like the noodles being too soft.

    good mi goreng needs to have that bite in the noodles otherwise as soon as you begin forking it it breaks up and becomes unpleasant to eat.

    Woolies is now selling the 'Supermi' brand of Mi Goreng.

    It's the same deal, same company, just the local version. Comes with extra onions and chilli sauce and cool flavours like 'Lime Chicken'. Get on it before it all sells out, makes indomie look shit!

    It's an Indonesian plot to loosen our ties with East Timor!

    I just had the supermi goreng extra spicy.

    It was like a mi goreng on steriods. Tasted like double a normal flavour packet of mi goreng :sick: I could feel the MSG burning my tastebuds

    Ok, moved to Melbourne earlier this year, so my normal supplier is dead to me. Grabbed a box of SuperMi at Costco, but they tasted worse. Anyone know where to get 30 or 40 boxes of IndoMi brand ones in the inner north of Melbourne?

    Original MiGoreng is hard to beat. Had 2 packets with a meat pie at 4am one night.
    Hit. The. Spot.

    Holy shit just been through a box of 30 mi gorengs and 27 of them didnt have any chilli powder in the sachets!

    Don't tell me to just use something else because its not the same. :mad:

    Not an avid Mi goreng eater so bare (bear?) with me. Did they always come with both chilli sauce and chilli powder? The pack I bought from coles tonight came with:

    - Black (soy?) sauce
    - Chilli sauce
    - Oily shit w/ dirt
    - Fried onion
    - Some sort of powder (I assume MSG mixed with sawdust)

    I vaguely remember a chilli powder but now I'm just hell confused :thumbup:

    Rofl, oily shit w/ dirt and MSG mixed with sawdust. It actually does look like that too, and for 30c/pack, who knows :lol:

    I know they used to have chilli powder. I hadn't eaten mi goreng in about a year. Ate it again the other night. Remembered how epic it is. However there was no chilli powder in any of the packs (had 3).

    So i had no Mi-Goreng laying around, i felt too lazy to leave the house, so i tried to make a Ghetto Mi-Goreng.

    Ingredients:
    Maggi 2 Minute Oriental Noodles
    Add Vegeta Seasoning before cooking
    Cook the noodles, add oriental flavour satchels
    Add soy sauce
    Add BBQ Sauce (I know Mi-Goreng doesn't have it, but i add it)
    Then i added some hungarian chilli paste, you could use any really, i just had this one, due to being Hungarian and all.

    Conclusion. Tastes nothing like Mi-Goreng, but tastes a lot better than Oriental 2 Minute noodles.
    Mission failed, but succeeded in making something remotely yum.
