    Using fresh pre-cooked noodles will make the process quick and simple while resulting in the best texture, but feel free to use dried noodles if that’s all you have at hand.

    Hong Kong style fried noodles, Shanghai noodles, and chow mein or egg noodles are all wonderful options, but you can also use any other noodle of choice such as udon, ramen, or yakisoba noodles.

    Fresh noodles can be prepared in seconds by blanching them in boiling water or hot tap water. Once the noodles are loosened, rinse under cold water and drain in a colander and they are ready to be used in the stir fry!
