If any of you have been to AN's Family restaurants you should all know the secret garlic noodle that they serve. I still remember the first time I went to Crustacean in San Francisco and had the garlic noodle it just blew my mind how good it was and ever since then it's history. Pretty much all we ever wanted was that crazy garlic noodle they charge up the storm for. And I have been trying to make them with all different ways for years and I knew there's cheese, garlic of course, and tons of butter in it but no matter how I do it, it never comes out the same. But lately I think I have gotten close to the point that I am satisfied with it and so I would like to share my version of it with you.
One little note NO SUBSTITUTE please because it kind of only taste right with these exact ingredient and funny enough they are all the cheap stuff. And you can play with the amount you want to put in as you wish but the two ingredient that makes it is the sugar and the sweet soy!
Hope you enjoy it as much as I do. And as for the noodles you can use spaghetti, the Pancit noodle that you can find Chinese markets works well with the chew (they are also called YI FU noodles or Cantonese noodles), the Shin Ramen works well or any other instant ramen or any egg noodles of your choice, I like thick and chewy ones.
Salted butter (like a little square worth for one serving)
Kraft Parmasean cheese powder (the green bottle we all know that cheap stuff)
Garlic powder (no fresh garlic, fried or anything else must be powder!!!)
Sweet soy or if using regular soy you will need to add more sugar (I like the Lee Kum kee Sweet soy)
Granulated sugar or organic cane sugar
Boil water and add noodles once noodles is done drain and transfer to bowl
Add butter first and toss together until all butter is melted then add the rest of the ingredient and toss till well mixed. Taste as you go and add more of any ingredient to your liking.
