Let’s have a look what varieties of noodle soup are in the market.
There are two well-known brands in Indonesia: Indomie & Sedaap
Indomie is well-known international product. Sedaap is also cool product as well know local, but the brand is trying to achieve to go international. The taste of both brands have similar taste, but also slightly different. Personal I prefer the stir-fry noodle sedaap version above the indomie brand, because of the awesome taste. But Indonemie has more variety flavors from here till Tokio (it is a expression in Dutch).
