Recently on a trip to Honolulu we were staying at a hotel on Kuhio Avenue, and every evening people were lined up to go into the Marukame Udon noodle place...you can look through the window and watch the people continuously make the noodles fresh...people, mostly oriental, lined up around the corner. We came upon a woman from Australia who, like us, was watching the line never shrink! But many, many people went in...We said before we leave Hawaii we have to go in, and we did on the last night around 8pm.
We waited in line (it moves quickly) and selected our noodles and "Toppings" there are a lot of choices but the displays show a representation of each...Cafeteria style the order takers and cooks all speak English and so do most of the oriental people in line. I ordered a bowl of noodles and broth with pork and onions...2 pieces of shrimp tempura and sat down to eat.
I was hungry, and can eat a lot when I am hungry... “I could not finish my meal” ...it tasted great...but such a huge quantity.
Delicious, filling, fresh, all for around 6 dollars with the drink.
Marukame Udon on Kuhio Ave …Go there ...don't let the length of the line fool you it goes really fast...it is well worth it...best priced meal on Oahu. I am sorry we waited till our last night; I would have been there every day.
