{oh joy eats} marugame monzo in little tokyo...
3 Jun 2013



Noodles are kind of one of my favorite things to eat. So when there are places that make the noodles fresh to order, I'm there like a kid at a candy store. Marugame Monzo in L.A.'s Little Tokyo makes piping fresh udon noodles, which has long been one of my favorite comfort foods...especially when I'm feeling under the weather.





The food at Marugame Monzo is simple yet so tasty. And it's a nice comfortable change of scene from the fast pace of a certain long-lined ramen shop next door. While the udon noodles were super fresh and just the right combination of chewy and firm, my favorite dish was actually the pork belly. It was sliced super thin and grilled with a hand torch for the perfect crispy edge. My mouth waters just thinking about it...
