Marugame Monzo
Downtown

Maybe the most exciting restaurant in Little Tokyo at the moment is Marugame Monzo, which recently relocated, turning its new space to showcase its freshly made udon. Ask for seats at the counter so you can watch the noodle-making action up close: Behind a large glass, the udon master will roll out the dough and cut strands and strands of the thick, chewy noodles for each order. The traditional bowls are great here; try the hot kitsune udon ($7.95) topped with fried tofu or the cold plum shiso bukkake udon ($8.95). Or, for a fun mash up of Japanese and Italian cuisines, go for the very popular miso carbonara udon ($12.50).
