Marugame Udon is a unique concept from Japan of made-to-order udon noodles that guests customize in a counter service format. Marugame will make its noodles onsite with proprietary cooking equipment imported from Japan, the staff will then cook and serve fresh batches of udon noodles in an open kitchen. Guests can make selections from various types of broth, proteins, and garnishes to top the hot or cold udon. Assorted tempura and rice balls (musubi) may be added. The well-priced menu and quick service with personalized interaction create a bustling ambience.
The restaurant will occupy a 3,000-square-foot space located on the lower level of the Sears Wing. It is named after the city, Marugame, located in the Kagawa prefecture in Japan, which is known for the Sanuki-style udon noodles served at Marugame Udon. The signature dish, Nikutama Udon (image attached), is sweet beef served with onsen tamago (hot spring egg) that adds a creamy texture when mixed with the noodles.
