  • The name "Noodle Exchange" is a play on the words "needle exchange", which refers to drug users exchanging their old needles for new ones.
  • The slogan "use your noodle" is an English idiom which is informally used when asking someone to think about how to solve a situation or problem.
  • In GTA San Andreas, there is an unused pedestrian model with the appearance of an old Asian man wearing a Noodle Exchange apron. He was intended to appear behind the Noodle Exchange stand. However, in the final game, an African-American man from the Chilli Dogs appears behind the stand instead.
