I was originally inspired to make this dish after my favorite Thai restaurant in San Diego closed. I was a loyal customer and totally addicted to their Drunken Noodles, Yellow Curry and Pan Fried Roti Bread!

Since they closed their doors a few years ago, I’ve been perfecting my own versions of their classic Thai recipes. After dozens of recreations of their Drunken Noodles, I’ve finally made the perfect recipe for Drunken Noodles!

While the recipe is quite simple, getting the perfect Drunken Noodles sauce is really the key to this noodle dish. The sauce is so flavorful and slightly spicy. In this recipe, I’ll share how to adjust the spice to your preference!

If you’ve been looking for the best drunken noodles recipe, you just found it! And luckily, it’s made in less time than it will take you to order Thai food on an app!

After having my first “Thai experience” a couple of months ago I’ve been eating and experimenting with Thai food on a consistent basis.

Thai Peanut Pasta is one of my favorite dishes yet and it worked out perfectly because I had extra peanut sauce from my PB&J Chicken Skewers.

I loved this recipe for 3 reasons:

  1. I hate to waste anything, especially food, so I was very happy to find another use for the extra sauce!
  2. This sauce was so amazing I will admit that I’ve actually been eating it by the spoonfuls since I made it!
  3. This recipe was super easy and only took 15 minutes to put together!
