Mie goreng is like nasi goreng but with noodles instead of rice. So a noodle wok from Indonesia that gets its typical taste from the kecap manis. Since it is not likely you have it at home or can find it in your local grocery store, then you can make your own replacement easily. Take one part soy and one part brown sugar. Then bring it to a boil while stirring so it dissolves.
