Vietnamese Garlic Noodles with Marinated Chicken and Bok Choy

So after going to Thanh Long in San Francisco (a Vietnamese restaurant that specializes in roasted crab and garlic noodles) two times in a month, I decided to try to make my own. So off to the web I went and I found a few recipes which claimed to be a close recipe to the original. What I did was take a little piece from each recipe that I think would make it taste good and combined them together! Without further ado…here is the recipe for a very good Vietnamese garlic noodle dish!

- 1lb of thick egg noodles from your local asian grocery

-4 tablespoons of olive oil
-2-3 cloves of garlic (pounded)
-6 cloves of minced garlic (or more if you want)
-2-4 tablespoons of butter
-2 tablespoons of garlic power
-1 tablespoon of chicken bouillon powder
-1 tablespoon of oyster sauce
-Parmesan cheese


  1. Boil noodles according to package. Make sure you don’t over cook it. It’s better to under cook than to over cook the noodles.

  2. After boiling the noodles, drain them in a strainer like so, and rinse with cold water:
  3. Heat up your saucepan with the olive oil on medium to high heat. Once the oil has been heated, toss in the 2 cloves of pounded garlic.

  4. Once the olive oil has been infused with the garlic (about 2-3 minutes) on medium high heat, add the butter and turn the heat to low heat.
  5. Add the rest of the ingredients besides the noodles and parmesan cheese. Let everything simmer and mix for about 1-2 minutes.
  6. Once everything is simmering and bubbling a little bit, toss in the noodles and with a chop stick, stir and toss for 3 minutes.

  7. Cook until your desired consistency on the noodles. Make sure it is not overcooked and it’s al dente when you bite into it. Also add salt to your taste.
  8. Then you are done! Just separate the noodles into however many dishes you are serving for and shave or sprinkle some parmesan cheese on top.
  9. Most people eat this with a roasted crab but for this meal I just marinated some chicken breast along with a side of baby bok choys.
  10. Enjoy!
