Bring a small pot of water to boil over a stove. Add in fresh chow mein noodles and with a fork, gently stir the noodles until they separate. It should take about 2 minutes. Drain noodles and set aside. (If you are using another kind of noodles, always follow the cooking instructions on the package.)
In a large sauce pan or wok, heat butter or oil. If using butter, heat the pan on low heat in order not to burn the butter. When the oil starts to shimmer or the butter has melted, add in minced garlic. When the garlic starts to brown and become fragrant, add in fish sauce, oyster sauce, sugar, and Maggi seasoning. Then add the noodles and stir for a minute to combine.
Turn off heat and add parmesan cheese to the noodles. Stir well. Serve while hot.
If you are using dry or uncooked noodles, follow the cooking directions on the package. There are SO many different noodles at the Asian grocery store!
