This week’s ‘Cheap eat of the week’ is not a culinary delight (for most) but a student staple. Dedicated to all Yarra House residence, this week’s choice is Goon and Mi gorengnoodles.
The goon sacks are usually removed from the carton and the bladders are carted around, filling up cups and bottles or drinking it straight from the pour. A five litre ‘fruity lexia’ is enjoyed at all occasions and pairs well with Mi goreng noodles.
As far back as I could remember the more traditional version were Maggi’s 2-minute noodles. But the more sophisticated Mi goreng noodles has become a popular favourite and offers an oriental twist.
Although the pack instructs the noodles to be cooked in the microwave or on the hob for 2 minutes, often Mi goreng is flavoured with sachets and soaked in boiling water until cool enough to eat.
Now if you’re feeling really adventurous you might like to try a splash of sweet chilly sauce and a teaspoon of crushed garlic if you’re craving that gourmet edge.
