Marugame Monzo

[Note: This is a scheduled post while I’m away in Korea!]

Added another Little Tokyo staple to my list of go-to restaurants in LA. Marugame Monzo, an udon restaurant with fresh noodles made right in front of you! Let the pictures speak for themselves.

Choose an udon, and choose tempura toppings. The second to last picture is of tempura hard-boiled eggs. They make it with the yoke just slightly undercooked (like Daikokuya‘s eggs, if ya’ll know what I’m talking about– which happens to be next door). I got the most basic udon (Kake udon) and it was a solid 4 stars with perfectly chewy noodles. They also have a bunch of different udons beyond the basic (e.g. curry udon, uni cream udon, squid butter udon), as well as non-udon dishes (e.g. pork belly bowl, beef tataki).

Looking at these pictures makes me want to go again (and again). Anyone?!
