Pretty good, with a few changes to add flavor. I added 2 cloves of garlic, 2 tbsp of sugar, and about 1/4 cup of rice vinegar. I also doubled the amount of cayenne pepper in total, substituted scallions for cilantro. Next time I may add some ginger, too. Goes great accompanied with a hot stir fry.

We have this at least once a month. It's so easy to play around with...adding as you please. I always add in stir-fried chicken and what ever veggies I have stir-fried along side like cabbage and cauliflower. Just toss it all together and season. I usually toss the noodles with garlic oil (garlic crushed with a motar and pestel and fried in oil till golden) before I add other ingredients. My hubby is not a fan of sesame oil, so I leave that out. Use your imagination with this. Thanks Ashley.

Sorry didn't care for this at all and will never make again. It was spicy but that is all. The flavors never seemed to meld together even overnight.
