I fell in love with Thai Drunken Noodle the very first time I tried it and this is my version of it. I based it on many other recipes I have seen and tailored it to taste the way you would get it at most Thai restaurants. You may find the Mirin difficult to find unless you go to an Asian market but it really cant be substituted. (My local Target Superstore carries it in the Asian section) Leave out the chili if you want a non-spicy version
