Marukame Udon (Waikiki 2015) – Sanuki-Style Udon for Breakfast

If you love noodles and only have one place that you can visit in Waikiki, make sure to try Marukame Udon on Kuhio Avenue.

Their freshly made Sanuki-style udon is amazing. Of course, this means that it can get really busy here during the peak rush. Since they open early, we decided to avoid the big crowds and have udon for breakfast… this also let us walk off our extremely filling meal afterwards.


Once you enter the restaurant, you get in line to place your order and watch how they quickly assemble your udon. Then the fun part begins as you get to pick from a big selection of tempura and musubi to add to your meal.

Here we have the Niku Udon with sweet beef and caramelized onions in a traditional light fish and seaweed broth (topped with an added poached egg of course).


Next is the Ontama Bukkake Udon with a flavourful bukkake sauce and soft poached egg.


As I mentioned, there’s a large variety of tempura to select from. On this visit, we tried the crispy fried chicken, asparagus, prawn, eggplant, squid, and fish cake tempura to name just a few… not to forget the spam musubi.

Don’t forget to garnish your udon… the condiments area is just past the cashier and has tempura sauce, chili flakes, wasabi, tenkasu, welsh green onions, and grated ginger.


Sanuki-style udon noodles tend to be a bit firmer and chewier and I’ve yet to be disappointed here.


The noodles are quite filling so make sure you don’t overindulge with the tempura.


Dat yolk tho!


Definitely add a soft poached egg to your udon and try them out for breakfast to avoid the crowds.
