Before we continue, we’d like to point out something about its name. In Malay, Iman has given the noodles the name of “Kuah Curry Bandung”. This translates to Bandung Curry Soup. While many people often think that the Bandung in Mee Bandung refers to the Indonesian city of the same name and thus suggests its origins, it actually comes from the Malaysian state of Johore. As such, we can expect something that mixes the beef stock and chili flavors of Bandung soup and the spices of curry.
We begin our review with the usual photos of the cup and its contents.
The contents of the cup are shown below.
The cup contains the noodle block, a plastic fork, a sachet of seasoning powder and a sachet of dried garnish.
Preparation is quite easy. Pour the contents of both sachets into the cup and fill it up with sufficient boiling water. Cover the cup and let the noodles cook for 3 minutes. We topped off the noodles with some chili, mushroom and iceberg lettuce.
After the past 3 reviews of Iman noodles, we knew not to get our hopes up for this one. Just like the previous samples, the wheat flour noodles here were simultaneously brittle and soggy. The broth was neither “Bandung” nor curry flavored. It was just a weird sour broth the provenance of which we are unable to ascertain.
This was overall a very disappointing sample. We give the Iman Easy Mee Bandung Soup Instant Noodles a score of half a chili and half a star.
