When first introduced in GTA San Andreas, the Noodle Exchange name was used for a series of vendors commonly seen in San Fierro, San Andreas that sell noodles for the player's consumption. The Noodle Exchange name was further reused in GTA IV to advertise a "Noodle Exchange" cup noodle on a prominent billboard in Star Junction, with the slogan "Use Your Noodle". Noodle Exchange is also depicted as a hostile rival noodle business during the Noodle Run side mission in GTA Chinatown Wars.
The name "Noodle Exchange" is a play on the words "needle exchange", which refers to drug users exchanging their old needles for new ones.
