Running out of stuff to eat, DL brought us to his regular hangout place. He said it’s a low cost dinner and the fried chicken was nice. To me, the fried chicken was fresh, freshly fried. Which also means that it was soaked in cooking oil and animal fats. Unfortunately, it wasn’t the kind of chicken that I like. I would still vouch for the ayam goreng sempalit at DoReMi.

Got home late tonight. Was lazy to go have dinner because the pain was killing me. When I got home, I thought of just having fruits. But what the hell, I went straight to the kitchen and have myself a plate of konlo instant noodle. Yes! I’ve been craving for it.

If the ordinary Maggi Kari Letup gets 6.5/10, this gets an extra 1 point. The fragrance from the seasoning was so good, though some of it got balled up and hardens when comes in contact with water. Just like the Indomie Kari Kapitan that I’ve craved for all the time. Since Indomie Kari Kapitan no longer with us, I guess this is a good alternative to that. Only 1 pack of seasoning to take care off, instead of 5 from Indomie.

Finally, I’ve waited until weekend to try the last flavour of instant noodle I have in my collection. The Maggi Mini Snek of Asam Laksa flavour. I’ve cooked it using the conventional way, with soup. it was very very sour. At least it has improved over the previous Maggi Asam Laksa flavour, which I sort of hated. Anyway, the cooking was a breeze as this get soaked up pretty quickly compared to conventional instant noodle. I had 2 packs of it before 1 was too little for my lunch.

The dried style was pretty similar to the tom yam flavour I’ve had, where it wasn’t much difference from the soup. It wasn’t extremely sourish either. But the noodle hold up pretty well. Much better than the tom yam’s noodle. Not sure if I didn’t stir well or the seasoning doesn’t dilute properly in the mildly moist noodle, I could taste a bit sandy texture on the noodle. Maybe it stays true to its origin, where the soup was supposed to have sandy texture. I prefer the colour on the tom yam’s though, because it looked much more appetizing as dried noodle.

This has been something that I’ve been dying to try out after my discovery with Maggi Kari Letup. Which turns out pretty successful.

Despite the tremendous improvement on Maggi Kari Letup, the dried Maggi Tom Yam as compared to its soup’s counterpart doesn’t show much differences at all. It tasted pretty much the same, except that the texture of the noodles were smoother. Those that soaked in the soup for too long tend to cause the noodles’ surface turn coarse, which doesn’t feel that good to the tongue that lick it.

I ended my dinner with a plate of healthy fruits as dessert. Though cherry tomatoes weren’t exactly fruits per se, but it doesn’t contribute to my strict diet’s requirements.
