Marugame Monzo's big win in 2018 at the 2nd Global Cuisine Awards!
Monzo serves "MARUGAME" style Sanuki Udon - thick and chewey noodle. The origin of Sanuki udon is Kagawa Prefecture of Japan and our Marugame style is considered one of the original style udon and had great impact on udon culture throughout Japan. It is usually served with a soup made from selected fish and soy sauce called "dashi".
We serve handmade udon, made and prepped in a traditional way. Our chefs are trained in Marugame city and they make the fresh udon at the restaurant os you can enjoy our food while watching them making udon noodles right in front of you.
Our fresh noodles are very chewey and served in wide variety - traditional Japanese style to Italian fusion. We also have wide selection of Japanese tapas (small dishes) that perfectly match with our udon. We are located in the heart of downtown Los Angeles- Little Tokyo so please stop by to experience our fresh handmade udon.
