2 tablespoons vegetable oil

1/2 clove fresh garlic 

1 Thai chile, crushed 

6 ounces chicken, shrimp or crab 

1 clove pickled garlic plus 3 ounces pickled garlic juice 

1 whole egg 

1 handful rice noodles 

1 tablespoon fish sauce

1 tablespoon palm sugar 

2 ounces green onion, chopped

Lime wedge, for garnish


  1. Heat up vegetable oil in a wok until it is shimmering. Throw in fresh garlic and crushed Thai chile and cook until golden brown, about 30 seconds. Throw in the meat and cook, stirring continuously, until it is cooked medium-well, about 1 minute. Add the pickled garlic and then the egg; while the egg is still runny, add the noodles. Add the fish sauce followed by the palm sugar and cook, stirring, until the noodles are soft. Add the pickled garlic juice and cook, stirring, about 30 seconds maximum. Add green onion, allowing to cook for no more than 15 seconds. Remove from wok and place on a serving dish. Garnish with lime.
