I’m an etiquette expert – there’s a correct way to eat a pot noodle and why you should never drink the broth | The Sun

POT NOODLES make the perfect snack for when you're in a rush or just can't be bothered to cook.

But it turns out there is a proper way to eat them – and it doesn't involve drinking the delicious broth.


Etiquette expert, Lucy Challenger, from the UK, revealed the appropriate way to eat a pot noodle in a TikTok video.

In the clip, Lucy states it is 'highly, highly., highly, highly highly unlikely that you will ever be served a pot noodle in a formal British setting.'

But just in case you ever are, Lucy reveals the proper way to prepare and eat it.

The first step to eating a pot noodle is selecting the right utensil.

"Well, a fork makes life a little bit easier, you can use the fork to pick up the noodles and a spoon to gather the liquid," the etiquette expert recommends, although some people will prefer to use chop sticks.

If you're in the right social circle, Lucy says the pot noodle should be prepared by the chef and then brought to the table for service.

But if the chef is off for the evening, your first step is to peel back the lid without completely taking it off.

Next, the etiquette expert recommends removing the sauce sachet and placing it to the side to be used in a later step.

Lucy then adds boiling water up to the fill line and places the lid back to allow the noodles to cook for two minutes.

You can then add the sauce to your pot noodle and stir the pot noodle with a fork before covering for further two minutes.

Once the noodles are cooked through the etiquette expert reveals you can removed the lid completely and bring to the table for service.

She adds: "Hopefully you have a lovely butler to help with this."

"One typically does not consume the liquid unless it is for example a soup," Lucy explains.

Just as you wouldn't drink the liquid from a bowl of mussels, you shouldn't drink the broth the noodles come with.

Lucy then takes the fork and places it in her right hand rather than her left, which is usually considered a no-no in formal dining but is acceptable in this scenario as she isn't using a spoon or knife.

She explained: "I will then gather some of the pot noodles onto the fork and delicately place the pot noodles into my mouth."

The etiquette expert revealed you must take extra care not to get any of the broth on the surround plates or on your outfit.

And of course, a pot noodles pairs perfectly with a glass of chardonnay.

The video has since gone viral with over 73k 'likes', and plenty of people were left in hysterics over the video.

One wrote: "It’s absolutely sending me that you did a video on two minute noodles."

Another commented: "What a queen to commit to showing us this."

A third penned: "I’m crying pls this is so funny."
