This little restaurant in Honolulu reminds me of a cafeteria.  you form lines at the counter, you point to what you want, until you reach the checkout register, then grab your tray of food and head out looking for a table.

But this isn’t just any cafeteria.  Marukame Udon is packed.  The noodles are freshly made in house, quickly given a hot bath, and rolled into equal size portions by hand. There are a couple of options of Udon, my favorite is the Niku Udon, with sweet beef and caramelized onions.  The Curry Udon was also a great choice.

On the appetizer side, the fried chicken was fried to a nice crisp, had a lot of flavor, and was not excessive oily.  The shrimp tempura and others were just average.  Overall this place is worth a go, the food is fresh, and the noodles are great.

However, with no or low A/C, and the doors closed.  It makes eating hot soup noodles on a hot summer night really difficult to enjoy.
