What is udon?
Udon are chewy thick Japanese noodles made from wheat, salt and water.
How fresh are the udon at Marugame?
We made our udon in the kitchen in front of your eyes throughout the day. Your udon will never be more than 20mins old it’s as fresh as it can be!
How is udon made?
It’s a two day process that involved mixing the dough (starting with our Japanese flour), ageing it following our two stage ageing process. Pressing, rolling and cutting. The water temprature, air temparature and humidity all affect how the dough needs to be handled. Our Udon Black Belt Kouhei Honkawa has trained all our team in the art of udon making and ensures quality on a daily basis!
This all happens in our open kitchen visible for everyone to see! Exactly how it’s done in Japan.
Is any of the meat halal?
All our chicken is halal. In the meantime 30% of our menu is vegan so we hope this means there is choice for everyone.
