1 tbsp each of oyster sauce, light soy sauce and sesame oil
dash of pepper and msg

Hi Kimmy, I'm going to cook this on Saturday when the kids are out. This portion is just nice for me and my hubby.

Hi Amy, the noodle portion is small but with the addition of other ingredients, it is a reasonable portion to fill the tummy. I like to add lots of vege in the noodles.
