SINGAPORE - A pop-up store selling a range of Kiki products, including four flavours of its popular Taiwanese noodles, will launch in Singapore on Tuesday (June 5).

The first Kiki Pop-Up Store will be located at The Centrepoint in Orchard Road, as part of a collaboration between Buzz Convenience Store and Kiki Fine Goods Singapore.

It will open daily from 11am to 8pm (including public holidays) for two to three months.

Among the products available at the pop-up store's 205 sq ft space are the KiKi Mala Paste($10.50) and KiKi Sichuan Pepper Powder ($8.50).

Also up for grabs are KiKi noodle packets ($13.70 for five) in four flavours: Aromatic Scallion, Sichuan Pepper, Young Vinegar and Aged Vinegar.

Buzz was the first retail chain to bring the noodles to Singapore on Feb 1, after it gained popularity among foodies in East Asia. The noodles are promoted by Taiwanese actress Shu Qi.

The noodles have been touted as a healthier alternative because they are sun-dried, unlike many other types of instant noodles, which are fried.

On June 16, visitors to the pop-up store can join a tasting session with local chef John See, who will be cooking the Aromatic Scallion and Sichuan Pepper noodles.

The food director for upcoming movie Crazy Rich Asians will be at the store from 2.30pm to 6.30pm.
