Instant noodles can be found in nearly all Singaporean households, making it a leading contender for our nation’s ultimate comfort food. 

The well-loved meal is finally getting its very own exhibition at Tekka Place, located above Rochor MRT Station. 

Called The Slurping Good!, the two-level playground will feature 13 interactive spaces and is open from Sep 25 to Jan 30.

It is also Singapore’s first instant noodle-themed experiential playground which offers visitors a quirky setting to take Instagrammable photos at its interactive spaces and murals.

The first floor of the playground leads visitors to ‘A Slurping Good! Adventure’ – a path that allows them to walk through a noodle archway and discover different kinds of noodles while choosing the ingredients to pair with them.

Visitors will be taken through interactive rooms filled with murals, installations and games involving popular ingredients such as egg, meat, greens, seafood and cheese.

As a cheese connoisseur, I was quick to venture to the Cheese Room. The cheese installations allow visitors to tunnel through the cheese-like structures to take quirky Insta-worthy pictures!

Other interactive spaces visitors can anticipate are a giant cup noodle installation, noodle slides for both children and adults, and a noodle swing.

Together with Nissin Foods Singapore (NISSIN), Slurping Good! will launch “My Dream Cup Noodles by Nissin” – an interactive space that features the number one cup noodle flavour in Singapore. 

The cup noodle installation stands at 1.7m high and is undeniably the most eye-catching display at the playground.

Visitors can also stand a chance to win a big instant noodles cup bag by snapping a picture at the wall and posting it on Instagram, with the hashtag #myDreamCupNoodles.

Those interested in getting their hands on some Slurping Good! tickets can also enter their Instagram giveaway. All they have to do is guess Singapore’s favourite cup noodle flavour, which will be revealed at its opening on Saturday.

In addition, visitors can also get creative and share their dream cup noodle flavour in the interactive space.

If that isn’t exciting enough, those seeking some thrill and adventure can explore the noodle slides at the Chu Qian Yi Ding Slider.

Besides the picturesque ground floor, the mezzanine floor is equally fun and exciting. It leads visitors to a bright yellow wall showcasing a variety of instant cup noodles from various brands.

While visitors are unable to package a cup of instant noodles home, they can customise the dish by choosing the noodles, soup base, meat, toppings and garnish at the interactive Noodle Lab. The customised version of their dishes can be enjoyed at Eatbox’s Soul Good Noodle Bar.

The playground concludes at the second level with the merchandise section, where visitors can purchase instant noodle-themed items such as tote bags and blankets, along with curated retail products like hand sanitisers and accessories from local brands.

The tote bags are priced at $16, while the blankets are priced at $20.
