    The fish sauce made this very salty. The amounts of noodles are really too much for two, 60g would probably have been enough for a sufficient meal. 100g each was beyond hearty!  -  03 Dec 2015


    Altered ingredient amounts. Delicious! I made this dinner 3x in the past two weeks I enjoyed it so much. The flavours in this dish come together very nicely. I added a bit more cabbage and ommited the ginger. One of the best recipes I have tried so far!  -  15 Sep 2008


    Altered ingredient amounts. We've made this twice now and have really enjoyed it. The second time was for guests. I like more cabbage so we doubled the quantity. It even tasted good the next day cold right out of the fridge. If you like the "fresh" taste of mint and coriander you will enjoy this recipe.  -  15 Sep 2008
