Traditional Wooden Noodle Cart


Design Concept
It's my first time to break down the frame of the architecture for opening the new design concept, which is called the taste of the Chinese traditional wooden noodle cart. I'm so excited to share Chinese-style noodles in wooden drawers of street vendors living in Saigon are seen as a sign of authenticity, an attraction for local people and travelers. In my design, I scaled down the model with LEGO bricks and used the same technique as the real traditional wooden noodle cart with mainly dark brown LEGO bricks. Some parts of the model, I did with my creation, but I still followed the horizontal line of the traditional design concept. There are so many details I did such as foods, glass mirrors with red, blue, and yellow; and Chinese lantern and so on. It is quite simple, but I tried to bring it into the Lego world for achieving “Play and Learn.”  I believe that it is awesome to build with LEGO bricks. Actually, typical Chinese-style noodle carts in Saigon are painted red or dark brown and made of wood. They are decorated with glass mirrors with Chinese characters painted on its surface. A row of drawers stores fresh batches of noodles.

Width: 9in / 228.6 mm
Depth: 3.8in / 96.52 mm
Height: 6.1in / 154.94 mm

Nowadays, many old noodle restaurants in Saigon have built spacious eateries, but they still retain their traditional wooden noodle vendor carts to serve as kitchens. I believe that Chinese-style noodle vendor carts in Saigon, Vietnam, whether sophisticated or simple, have been doing their job for at least a lifetime. I believe that this would make a great Lego set in the future. Thank you to all the supporters! Thank you to all the followers! Please feel free to leave comments or suggestions!
