In This Museum, You Create Your Own Cup Noodles Flavor (Video)
By Cooking Panda
If you’ll recall, we recently discussed the 45th birthday of Cup Noodles, and we talked all about its history. Most of that history is celebrated within the Ramen museum in Yokohama, Japan.
Also part of that museum is an exhibit where you can make your own Cup Noodles. As you’ll see in the video below, it features a bar where you can take your cup and go through and add all of your favorite ingredients. If you loved Ramen as a kid (who didn’t?) this could possibly be the yummiest trip down memory lane…ever.
According to Foodbeast, it costs only 300 yen ($2.89) to create your own Cup Noodles flavor. They’ll even wrap it for you so that it looks like you just bought it right off the shelf.
According to Japan Guide, you can also make your own Ramen at the “My Chicken Ramen” station in the very same museum. This takes 90 minutes and requires reservations ahead of time. It costs 500 yen and I’m sure it’s well worth it.
Also within the park is a Cup Noodles children’s playground. I knew the noodles were versatile, but this is crazy!
Finally, another area of the museum worth mentioning is the Noodles Bazaar, set up to look like a night market, and allowing visitors to taste all kinds of noodle dishes for only 300 yen. It even comes complete with the sounds of hawkers and traffic so you can have an almost real experience of what it would actually be like to visit an Asian night market.
If I haven’t said it before, this is definitely a place worth checking out if you’re ever in Japan. And besides, everyone should travel out of their own country at least once. Why not make a trip just to see this place?cup noodles, japan, ramen
