I can’t be the only one who loves instant noodles, especially the Nissin brand. It was the go to brand for my family as I was growing up because there weren’t as many to choose from. Not like now, where you find instant noodles of every shape and kind from all over the world.
The Nissin ones are the OG instant noodles I’m sure a lot of Asian Kids grew up eating. Fry an egg, add some veggies and it was a quick, cheap meal that never disappoints.
So when I found out Nissin has a museum in Hong Kong that LETS YOU MAKE YOUR OWN INSTANT NOODLES – I opened my wallet and bought tickets for it right away!
The museum is located in the China Hong Kong City building, which is the Macau ferry terminal in Tsim Sha Tsui. It’s not exactly near any of the MTR exits but is easily walkable.
If walking isn’t an option, there are many bus routes that stop close by. They have a list of possible bus routes on their website.
What to expect when you're there...
When I use the word museum it might conjure up images of glass cases of old objects in a stale dull room.
But the Cup Noodle Museum is nothing like that. It’s brightly coloured, fun and interactive. There are photo walls for the perfect Instagram snap, informative poster boards that shows the interesting history of Nissin and several interactive workshops you can take part in.
This is the perfect afternoon for families, couples or anyone who loves to try something new and fun.
There are 3 workshops to choose from, each letting you make a product of theirs. I chose their most popular one to join – the “Demae Iccho Factory” (the one where you make instant noodles!)
Tip: Go on a weekday, because it’s usually sold out on the weekends.
I had so much fun making the noodles and it was really easy because every 2 participants gets an instructor to help you the whole way. Its fail proof!
Must visit if you’re in Hong Kong and looking for something indoors suitable for all ages!
