Bakmie or mi goreng means stir-fried egg noodles, which are added to a variety of vegetables for breakfast or a snack. We like this entrée as a simple supper. Sweet soy sauce is sugary compared to the thin and thick versions of soy sauce; it balances the saltiness of regular soy in this dish. If you can't find precooked fresh Chinese egg noodles at an Asian market, substitute instant egg noodles. Cook the instant version following package directions; rinse and drain thoroughly before stir-frying in the recipe.
