oh chey, if it's really $1 for some salted egg yolk shrimp pasta then maybe can justify the q....
I wonder if the machine serves faster than a hawker or not?  If the entire process is slower, then quite pointless.

I saw one of those automated cooking machines on tv recently, it was like a washing machine stirring fried rice in it.

from the video, you need to wait another 140 secs after completing your order for the machine to dispense your food.

That's actually quite fast.  I guess most people are still noobs when it comes to ordering from machines hence the queue.  And there may be some who explore the whole system finished liao then order.

that's more than 2 minutes.....


japan gives you a bowl of 'fresh-looking' chasiu ramen or tempura udon in 30secs, toasted sandwich in 40s, and a burger in 1min. and these vending machines are supposedly the old-school kind.

you also get decent tables and chairs like an eatery, just no staff to clean up for you. only possible in Japan.
Do this in Singapore and you'll get food vending machines in a dumpster within hours.

I think boil pasta + heat up sauce takes around that time bah..

Some people just 不自动, the empty cup/bowl noodles and cans outside 24hr convenience stores already confirm this.
