Nice recipe. The first time I made this I did not have chili oil so I used red pepper flakes. This resulted in a spicy, but extremely bland dish. The second time I had chili oil on hand, and added extra sesame oil and sugar. These changes drastically improved the dish, however it was still a bit on the bland side for me, and seems like it could have used something a little more.
