Indonesian Stir-Fried Noodles (Bakmi Goreng)

Photo: Marcus Nilsson; Styling: Tiziana Agnello

This easy Indonesian Stir-Fried Noodles (Bakmi Goreng) is a street-food noodle classic. For this noodle bowl's success, it depends on two things: serving it piping hot, right out of a very hot wok, and finding some kecap manis, a molasses-thick sweet soy sauce.
