On a recent date night my hubby took me to a swanky Japanese joint that had an amazing menu! Some of the mouth watering options included crispy lobster dumplings and kimchi fried rice- but one menu option stood out from the rest- AN’s Famous Garlic Noodles. It was in BOLD and set aside from the other options. This really got my mind moving- just garlic noodles? Sounds soooo simple, too simple! How good could it actually be???? My curiosity got the better of me and I went ahead and ordered it!

The minimalistic white bowl arrived at the table with a fancy pair of black chopsticks. I peered into the depths of the deep white bowl and sized up the golden colored noodles. They were arranged in a perfect swirled pattern.  Rising steam brought the scent of soy and garlic. I started salivating and jumped right it! They were heavenly. Divine. Perfect. And in 5 minutes they were gone!

So ever since then I’ve been dreaming of making my very own.

    1. Thanks so much! I wanted them to look like how they were presented to me in the restaurant. I’m sure they have some easy and quick trick to get their noodles so perfectly spiraled- my version- well, not so quick! 😉

    1. Hi Dani! I think fish sauce will be a fine substitute. I’ve made them with our either and they are still awesome!

  1. Found this link on Pinterest and thought I’d give this recipe a go. I -cannot stop- making garlic sticky noodles!

    Thanks for the instant favorite.

  2. I will be making this tomorrow!! I’m planning to make extra sauce and add some pan seared chicken to make it a full meal. Fingers crossed i can plate mine as pretty as yours!!

  3. I found this recipe on Pinterest about 15 minutes ago and made it 10 minutes ago. My husband and I slurped them down. So delicious! This will definitely be my go-to noodle craving recipe from now on. Thank you!

  4. I am not, by any stretch of the imagination, an expert in any type of cuisine but I will tell you this – I do love noodles and that picture is calling my name. Thanks for the recipe, I will try it as soon as the wire & I are off work on same day.

  5. Making these for dinner tonight. I’m waiting for the water to boil for the pasta and trying to restrain myself from eating all of the sauce with a spoon.
    So easy, and so good! Will definitely make its way into our menu.

  6. Made these for lunch today with an Asian slaw – DEELISH. We both loved them and they’ll move into a regular rotation. Thank you for a wonderful adaptation – much appreciated!

  7. Hi Miss Kelley! The garlic noodles look absolutely wonderful. However, I’m seeming to have trouble finding any type of gluten free noodles near me. Would whole wheat noodles work in this recipe?

    1. Yes- any of your favorite noodles will work. Just cook them according to the box’s directions and follow my recipe for the sauce!(Also- you can usually find rice noodles in the Asian section of most grocery stores.) Enjoy Jasmine!

  8. These were delicious but I must have done something wrong. My sauce was very liquidy and wasn’t soaking into the noodles very well. Also my green onions didn’t brown up like the ones pictured. It was still tasty but just wondering if you have any tips to help me out next time. Thank you!

    1. Hi Lindsay! Thanks for writing in. I’m sorry they didn’t turnout well for you but I think I know the issue. How long did you cook the butter and green onions for and at what temperature? My thought is that you didn’t cook them long enough and maybe at too low of a temperature. Don’t add the sugar until the onions look soft and brownish. The butter should be hot enough that it’s bubbly and sizzling, but not burning. Then when you add the sugar, mix thoroughly until its melted and the sugar will thicken us the sauce. Did you use real butter? Some other butter substitutes may not work either. Let me know if you have better luck!

  9. I want to try this this week or next week. But question! Which kind of noodles did YOU use ? And where did you get it from?

    1. I’m so glad you liked them MaryJanice! I will try to get some nutrition info for you this week! Kelley

  10. I Tried these without the green onions or oyster sauce because I didn’t have any on hand and they were really delicious! I am definitely adding this recipe to my collection. So glad I found your blog. Thanks for sharing!

  11. Oh my goodness!!! These sticky garlic noodles were amazing!!! And the smell of the sauce once I put the coconut palm sugar in! It was heavenly!! Way better than any take-out! I used Coconut Amino since I cannot have soy and it worked perfect! This recipe is a keeper, especially since it was super easy!!!

  12. I found this recipe just this morning and HAD to try it. I just made this and am in the middle of eating a GIANT bowl of it and I had to stop and take a breath and write this post thanking you for the recipe! It’s such a great starting point too – I added sliced chicken and a teaspoon. of chili sesame oil and next time I’m throwing in a few handfuls of broccoli and tofu! THANKS!

  13. I made this tonight and can’t get over how easy and DELICIOUS this recipe is! Thanks for sharing! I’ll definitely be making this again soon!

  14. Where has this recipe been all my life…used a 900gm bag of linguini and x4 the recipe!!! The family are licking the plates and want more. I will have to double what I made!!! My family (3 teens 1 5year old and me) thank your for the recipe. We also garnished with crushed chilies for a fantastickick!!!

  18. Wow! Made it last night, so dang good!I I don’t know if I hate you or love you for sharing this recipe cause like you said couldn’t stop eating it, My will power went out the window after the first bite.

  19. I’ve made this about 5 times already! The first time, my husband asked I where I ordered from! The family loves it. Tonight I’m Laing it with Asian inspired grilled salmon.

  20. This was delicious! Next time, I think I’ll halve the sugar because we thought it was a bit sweet. We don’t eat much sugar so it was probably more pronounced to our palate.

  21. Amazing and very easy recipe!! I added beef to make it more of a full meal, and truly couldn’t stop eating these….and…my husband LOVES this as much as me! Thank you so much!

  22. My family loves this meal. I quadruple it, add chicken and veggies to sauté and reduce in butter before sugar and soy are added. It’s great with diced white onion in lieu of green onion as well. Thanks for the recipe! Easy, quick weeknight meal that will feed hungry teenagers!
