Next up is the Indomie Chicken Curry Flavor ramen I got as a gift from my partner's sister. It got a recommendation from my only comment so far (on the Sneak Preview post), and it was also the one my sweetie suggested for me today. So, let's jump right in!
The prepared ramen has a somewhat sweet and tangy aroma--it really does smell like a Thai-style chicken curry! The taste of the broth is much more savory, though; there is just the faintest hint of that sweet-spicy-sour flavor. I added the entire chili-powder packet and they were only mildly spicy, so nothing really to worry about there. The noodles are a nice firm texture, which is fairly common for imported Asian brands... I won't go as far as to say they are higher quality than the American brands, maybe most Americans have a preference for mushy noodles and that is why the difference, but I do prefer the firmer variety.
Anyway, the final word on these: I would have a hard time saying they actually taste like chicken curry (although they definitely have the aroma down). I would easily say that they are an above-average bowl of ramen, though. This one gets a happy face. :D
