This is a knock-off of "Street Noodles" that (I am led to believe) street vendors flog in the busy areas of Thai cities.

I didn't find these to have enough flavor, so I had to double the sauce/flavoring ingredients to punch up the noodles. But once I did, these had a good taste, but it was more of a Chinese flavor than that of Thai. I added some fish sauce on a small portion to see if that made a difference and it did change the character to be more Thai- so that was the difference. I would definitely make these again as my family likes these, and I think they are a good recipe for basic noodles. Thanks for the recipe!
