Guy Fieri's Hong Kong Noodle recipe for September

I know, I know. I really don't do these monthly recipes on a regular basis as I should. But I wanted to do this one because ... it's so damn good. Enjoy.

From Guy's Big Bite - Take Out Remix.

This dish is also a favorite of Hunter's, and a favorite for Guy to use in his demonstrations (in New York, Disney, Great American Food & Music Fest, and more).
