SOAK THE RICE NOODLES in hot water until soft, 20 to 30 minutes.

FOR THE THAI NOODLE SAUCE, heat the oil in a medium saucepan.

Stir in the coconut milk, peanut butter, regular milk, cinnamon stick, bay leaves, fish sauce, brown sugar, lemon juice, and tamarind paste.
Mix well and set aside; the sauce will thicken as it cools.
FOR THE NUOC CHAM, combine the vinegar, fish sauce, water, sugar, lime juice, garlic, and chile in a small saucepan.
Bring to a boil and stir just until the sugar has dissolved.
Set aside.
HEAT 1 TABLESPOON of the oil in a large wok or heavy skillet over medium-high heat.
When hot, add the noodles and stir-fry for 2 minutes.
Transfer the noodles to a large bowl and set aside.
Heat another tablespoon of oil in the pan, add the shrimp and chicken, and stir-fry until just cooked through, 3 to 5 minutes.
Transfer to the bowl with the noodles.
HEAT ANOTHER TABLESPOON of oil in the pan and add the bok choy, bell pepper, mushrooms, broccoli, and carrot.
Stir-fry until the vegetables are just crisp-tender, about 3 minutes.
Add the mint leaves, ginger, and garlic along with the nuoc cham and Thai noodle sauce and stir to mix.
Add the noodles, shrimp, and chicken.
Stir until heated through, about 1 minute.
Serve immediately.
