We’ve seen all sorts of deliciously creative as well as questionable mashups of Indonesia’s beloved Indomie brand instant noodles with other foodstuffs over the years. But most of those involve the mi goreng (fried noodle) variety rather than the company’s many soupy flavor offerings. There’s not much you can do with noodle soup, save for adding your own unique ingredients to the broth.
The problem with using soupy noodles as a sandwich filling are hopefully obvious to you. Yet here we are, living in the golden age of Indomie fusion foods, and somebody still created this horrific abomination:

That picture was shared yesterday by an Arabic language Indomie memes Twitter account (a testament to the global fanatical devotion to the delicious instant noodles) named @indomiememes, which says it’s based in Egypt. The tweet translates to “Can you close the company then?” in what is seemingly a tongue-in-cheek complaint directed at @IndomieEgypt, the official Twitter account in the land of the pharaohs.
@IndomieEgypt, seemingly wanting to distance themselves from the blasphemous idea of putting soggy noodles inside a hot dog bun, came up with this very appropriate response:

Now, while we agree with @IndomieEgypt, whoever posted the photo might be on to something here. We imagine Indomie’s Mi Goreng fried noodle variant could probably elevate simple sandwiches like egg and chicken to heavenly levels. But we’re definitely not the first to come up with that idea, considering the advent of the Indomie burger in Australia last year.
Of course, there’s plenty of other Indomie fusion ideas besides putting the noodles in between two pieces of bread. Over the past few years, we’ve seen Indomie burritos, Indomie potato chips, and even birthday cakes made out of Indomie.
