I had the opportunity to attend a preview tasting of Marugame Udon opening at South Coast Plaza. In addition to this location, there are over 1000 locations world wide.
A cafeteria style restaurant specializing in Japanese authentic made-to-order Udon noodles, which are freshly kneaded, boiled and cooked right in front of you every day, using premium ingredients imported from Japan. And you can also enjoy many Tempura and Musubi selections as well.
I had the Thai green chicken udon and I have to say, it was one of the tastiest and fresh udon I tasted! I also had various tempura selections and they were delicious as well!
