    I used less fish sauce brown sugar and regular sugar and it still tasted amazing with less of that stuff. So less sodium and sugar.

    Tastes great, the only change that I would make is to cut back on the lime juice. It was just a little overpowering but otherwise a great recipe.

    Liked the consistency and medium-high level spice. Easy to make, my boyfriend loved it, would make again :)

    Don’t forget the spicy Thai paste/sauce and not too many noodles.

    Turned out very well, though not quite the taste I'm looking for. Used green onions instead of scallions, and only 3 eggs instead of 4 (that's all I had). It was spicy, so you could probably skip the red pepper flakes if you wanted to.
