Believe the hype. Marugame Monzo is famous for their fresh, handmade udon noodles. Located on a bustling block in Little Tokyo, the restaurant is small, thus the inevitable wait list. I know most people like to eat their own bowl of noodles but if it's your first time, I'd recommend getting a couple different entrees so you can try. Their most popular dish is the uni cream udon. The noodles were smooth and perfectly chewy, and the cream sauce had a nice hint of uni flavor with generous pieces of uni mixed in. The ikura roe is a nice touch of saltiness, as the flavor itself is pretty light considering it's a cream sauce pasta. I would definitely recommend. It's a nice casual spot in little Tokyo. The staff is nice and the food is good. I would like to come back and try some of the udon noddles in the future.
