Marukame Udon (Hawaii 2016) – Oodles of Noodles

Ever since our first visit to Marukame Udon, we’ve made a point to come back to this udon joint every time we come to Waikiki. This isn’t your ordinary udon… line ups for Marukame is legendary.

That’s why, on our most recent visit, we stopped by for breakfast… no line ups plus the opportunity to walk off our amazing meal.

On this visit, they were having a special with their niku beef udon.

Make sure you add a soft boiled egg to your udon.

And you can’t come to Marukame and pass up their assorted tempura and musubi (shown below is the shrimp, squid and sweet potato)

This time around, I wanted to try their Kamaage Udon. The kamaage udon comes straight from the boiler and doesn’t go through a cooling process making the noodles more textured.

I picked the fried chicken and mushroom tempura. The chicken karaage here is really good – make sure you save room for this!

Served in a large wooden bucket, you want to make sure that you don’t drink the water that it’s served in because it’s just plain salted water.

Instead, you dip your noodles in the separate bowl of hot dipping (bukkake) sauce. This results in more flavour than their regular kake broth. I added a soft boiled egg in my dipping sauce.

We waddled out of Marukame both satiated and happy. Check out our last visit to see more of their special sanuki-style udon.
