Drunken Noodles

Drunken Noodles is my favorite Thai dish next to Fresh Rolls. I decided to start making it myself because traditionally it is made with fish and oyster sauce. It's super easy to make and perfect when you want to have a homemade takeout night.


Cook Time: 30 Minutes

Makes about 2-3 servings


  • 1-8 oz. package of wide rice noodles - you can also use any pasta you like

  • 1 bunch of Chinese broccoli - you can use bok choy or spinach)

  • 1 red bell pepper sliced

  • 2-3 shallots sliced or onion

  • 1 8 oz. package of mushrooms of your choice

  • 5-6 large garlic cloves minced

  • 1-2 Thai chili’s chopped - you can also use regular chili’s or even red pepper flakes to taste

  • 1 cup of Thai basil or regular basil

  • White pepper or regular pepper to taste

  • Limes

The Sauce:

  • 2 Tbs of mushroom sauce

  • 1-1/2 Tbs light or regular soy sauce

  • 1-1/2 Tbs of Dark soy sauce (this gives it the beautiful dark color. You can find it at any Asian market or H-Mart. If not just use regular soy sauce.)

  • 2 Tbs of sugar

  • 1/4 cup of water

  • 1 Tsp of corn starch (this will help the sauce get thick so it will stick to the noodles)


  1. First make the sauce by combining all the ingredients to a large bowl and mix well and set aside.

  2. Next place a skillet over medium heat and add in the oil.

  3. Once the oil is hot add in the mushrooms, garlic, shallots, peppers.

  4. Cook while stirring occasionally for about 6-7 minutes. Then add in the Chinese broccoli and basil.

  5. Cook for an additional 2-3 minutes or until the greens have wilted.

  6. Now carefully pour in the sauce mixture and let it come to a simmer. The sauce will begin to thicken after about 2 minutes.

  7. Add in the noodles and stir to combine everything.

  8. Squeeze on a little fresh lime juice before serving.

Cooking Notes: Rice noodles are extremely starchy and making them takes a little practice. You can always try making this dish with the pasta of your choice to make things easier.
