This may sound weird but I actually felt that the pain I experienced was in vain. Hear me out — while the overall result tasted surprisingly edible, its flavours and textures didn’t quite live up to my expectations and came off as rather unexciting.
For one, the explosive fizziness that erupted once I poured the Sprite into the hot oil gave me the impression that the dish too would have some sort of bubbly element. Unfortunately, that wasn’t the case and the sauce ended up having the same consistency as a bowl of watery instant noodle soup.
To be frank, all the Sprite did was make the dish a tad bit sweeter than usual. So if you have a sweet tooth, this may be something up your alley. Otherwise, I recommend just sticking to your regular Indomie.
