Excellent! I think it was better than the restaurant. I used Ramen Noodles and I added extra Chili/garlic sauce (could not find paste) cause we like a little more heat. Just so good. Can't wait to make it again. Thanks for sharing!

Great recipe! I grated the ginger instead of minced it, and I doubled the entire recipe. I also added a sliced red bell pepper and five sliced carrots for color. I'll be making this one time and again!
