Noodles in your mini bar!

Include noodles in your mini-bar!

Noodles are extremely poplar and a convenient meal seemingly made for the hotel or motel room, and they are expected by Asian visitors to be available. In China, even in lower priced accommodation a few packets of complimentary noodles are the norm. With Chinese tourism to NZ expected to be around a million per annum by 2021, this is an effective way to improve the customer experience for what will increasingly become your dominant customer sector.

Cheap to buy in, noodles offer great potential for a healthy mark-up. A captive audience will almost always pay over the odds for convenience.

Noodles 101

There is more to noodles than just nipping down to the supermarket and buying a few packs. Noodles from each Asian country are as different as chalk and cheese, and Asians consider NZ and Australian produced noodles as being of a blandness that borders on disgusting. I must say, I agree.

So here’s Noodles 101 from the University of Pete. Noodles in China tend to reflect very closely the ‘Eight Cuisines of China’, and are mostly wheat based in the north and rice based in the south. Hot and spicy is the key, and the spice and hotness reflect the regions. Not sure what the Eight Cuisines of China are? Download our free eBook!

 Japanese noodles tend to be closer to northern China in taste, whilst Korean noodles are totally different from either. Chances are a Korean will turn up their nose if served Chinese noodles and vice versa. However, both will almost surely pass on noodles from NZ or Australia, so lacking in spice or other flavour.

A huge variety of noodles covering the entire Asian food preferences spectrum are now available in NZ. Just check out the local Kosco, Chinese supermarket and even Chinese dairies.

Now that you have a little learning on the subject, stock a variety and watch the results. You will be pleasantly surprised.
