Noodles. We all eat them. We all love them. And Diamond City's Power Noodles has supplied this sustenance for the past fifteen years. From the stilted mechanical cadence of Takahashi's programmed Japanese, to the fragrant steam that wafts from each bowl, to the scalding tang of each delicious mouthful - the ordering and eating of noodles is but one of many shared human experiences. Or is it?The Synthetic Truth

Power Noodles is an unmarked location in the Diamond City market in 2287.

Background

Founded in 2272, the easily visible counter-style restaurant is directly opposite the city's main entrance.[1]

Operated by the Protectron Takahashi, Power Noodles is a major food shop in the center of the city hub, where the robot sells noodles for 55 caps per bowl.

Layout

Counters encircle a central pillar, with Takahashi behind one of them. A cooking station sits near the pillar. The shop has a functional power reactor, supplying the surrounding buildings of Diamond City with electricity.[2]

Notes

  • Approximately 43 years before Power Noodles was established, a bar that inhabited the same space in the market was the location of the Broken Mask incident. This violent event resulted in the death of 10 individuals at the hand of a malfunctioning Institute synth in May 2229.[3][4][5]
  • Upon meeting Takahashi for the first time and hearing his signature question ("Nan-ni shimasko-ka?") a resident will say "Just say yes, it's all he understands."
  • MacCready enjoys Takahashi's noodles immensely. If he is the Sole Survivor's current companion, he accepts a bowl from the robotic chef and when finished, enthusiastically asks for more.[6]
  • If visiting Diamond City on Halloween, Power Noodles is decorated with red skull cutouts on the counter and "Happy Halloween" banners stretched across the canopy.
  • On Christmas, Power Noodles is decorated with Christmas trees and lights running to surrounding buildings.
  • Companions will try to talk to Takahashi when arriving in the Diamond City market for the first time.
  • The Far Harbor note Taste test found in the Nucleus makes a reference to Power Noodles.

  3. The Synthetic Truth: "So it must have also seemed to the residents of Diamond City nearly sixty years ago, on an uncharacteristically warm May evening in 2229, as they sat around this very same counter. But that was before the days of Takahashi and his noodles, when the bar served not noodles, but ice cold Nuka-Colas, frothy beers, and stiff shots of whiskey."

  4. The Synthetic Truth: "Which brings us to noodles. Specifically, the noodles consumed by Mayor McDonough last Wednesday night, in the same spot that Mr. Carter the synth went haywire, and mercilessly killed several people - after spending hours sharing an experience the people of Diamond City assumed was reserved for members of the human race. They were wrong."

But that was the day we learned of the Institute's latest creations. The synths. As long as the Institute walks invisibly amongst us, they strike without warning and control us from the shadows."
