Fans of the snack will be able to pick up spicy curry, beef, tomato or chicken and mushroom flavours 24 hours a day when the machine is turned on next week.
It appeared on Mansfield Road over the last couple of days, with customers getting a fork and hot water dispensed so they can enjoy their snack on the move.
However, some people claim to have seen it all before and that these machines used to exist several years ago.
Is a noodle vending machine news? We had a pot noodle machine in college, and that was back in '99.

And while vending machines selling noodles may be commonplace in countries like Japan, not everyone thinks the new noodle machine is a good idea.
Why would you want a pot noodle vending machine 😷
