  4. Drain the water from the noodles and add in the wok along with 1 tbsp of oyster sauce, 1 tbsp of Worcestershire sauce, 1 tbsp of soy sauce and 1/2 tbsp of Sriracha.  Mix well until all is combined.  Serve immediately
  5. Happy Eating!

NOTE: I did not add salt to the water of the noodles as the soy sauce and Worcestershire sauce contain high sodium.  Also, for even a spicier taste, add red dry chili peppers.
