You’ve probably eaten countless packets of the Mamee Monster noodle snacks in your childhood — I mean, who can resist that addictive crunch and seasoning? If you still hold the same love in your heart for this childhood snack, how about visiting Mamee Jonker House for a trip down memory lane?
There’s more than just nostalgia to it. Mamee Jonker House is a Mamee museum, with a cooking workshop and a dedicated cafe located along the famous Jonker Street of Malacca. You can get to DIY your own cup of noodles, and get to try Malaccan dishes made with the signature Mamee noodles!
You’ll first be greeted by the Mamee Cafe at the entrance. Many visit for their signature Mamee Mee Goreng (from S$3.62, RM12.50), Mamee Chef Curry Laksa (S$3.62, RM12.50), and their house special, the Mee Goreng Mamak with Satay (S$5.21, RM18).
They’ve got plenty of other delicious Malaccan dishes like Hainanese Chicken Rice Ball (S$4.05, RM14) and more for you to dig into as well.
Once you’ve had your fill, explore the Mamee Merchandise Store, where you can find exclusive merch of the blue Mamee Monster and a whole range of Mamee Monster snacks, including the nostalgic noodle snack in flavours like black pepper, Hot & Spicy and more.
Ever wondered how your childhood snacks came to be? Well, you’ll be able to find out all the answers at this museum. There’s also plenty of photo spots around the museum grounds for you to snap pics with your favourite furry monster.
Now for the highlight of this journey, the Noodle Doodle workshop! For just S$4.34 (RM15), you’ll get a hands-on experience at creating your own Mamee instant noodle cup with your choice of seasoning and condiments in a mini “factory”.
Unleash your inner creativity and doodle away on the noodle cups with the coloured markers provided. Once you’re satisfied with your masterpiece, place it on the conveyor belt and watch it get sent down the line to the condiments section.
You get to pick from four soup base flavours — Chicken, Tom Yum, Curry Laksa and Vegetarian. There’s spring onion, chilli, mushroom and more condiments for you to mix and match as well.
Your one-of-a-kind Mamee noodle cup is then sealed and packed into a cute blue Mamee Monster bag for you to enjoy at home.
If this isn’t “hands-on” enough for you, then check out their cooking workshop at Lil Monster Kitchen where you can learn to make the Mamee Monster snacks from scratch! Though, you’ll have to book ahead early as they only hold classes on Wednesdays and the weekends.
Otherwise, there’s no need for any reservations so feel free to visit Mamee Jonker House on your next trip to Malacca!
