I cook many recipes from Good Food and usually they're very good. This was very bland and I won't be doing it again.

So yummy! Really easy to do and tastes great, so fresh. I used Vietnamese vermicelli and I ended up sticking the bowl in the microwave to soften them up! Might get supermarket next time. Be aware that an entire Chinese cabbage takes up a lot of space but the end result is amazing!

I cook many recipes from Good food, and I have to say this must be one of the best - what a fantastic meal. If you are a fan of stir fries and noddles this is a must! Can't wait to make it again, this will definately be a regular meal in our house.

I love Singapore fried noodles from the Chinese (love curry), so thought I'd give these a go and I have to say it's one of the best stir fry's I ever had! I also added Chicken and scrambled egg and used fresh greens instead of Chinese cabbage. Will definitely be making again!

A brilliantly simple and very tasty recipe. I added chicken to mine as well as some scrambled egg. Will definitely be doing this again. Would also be great cold for lunch.

I couldn't find the chilli oil today, and am going to cook this tomorrow, is there anything else could use as a substitute, or where could I find this for sale?
