Very pretty dish with nice flavours. I used all the ingredients (no substitutes) and followed your perfect directions. Next time I might use one tablespoon of sambal oelek as it didn't have the kick I was looking for. Thank you Daydream

These noodles are very good - lots of flavour, moist and delicious! I made them as written, except for garnishing with green onions as I had no coriander. I will certainly be making these again. Thanks Daydream, I've been on the lookout for good noodle recipes and yours certainly is!
