LA Weekly's Description

Marugame Monzo in Little Tokyo is sit-down and upscale, at least for a noodle joint, with black, lacquered tables and a feel that's downright sleek. In this way, Monzo bridges the gap between L.A.'s high-end Japanese restaurants and the low-rent ramen shops that were here even before the current noodle craze (such as Daikokuya, the legendary Little Tokyo ramen shack, which for many years was the only game in town and is located right next door to Monzo). Here is all the care, effort and comfort of a sushi restaurant, only instead of pristine fish, it's the noodle diners come to revere. —Besha Rodell

Tips from foursquare

  • Alex C. on 03/17/13

    Amazing udon! They have a delicious braised pork belly appetizer!

  • Los Angeles on 10/16/13

    Start out with some fine tempura, like the savory soft boiled egg fried in a light crunchy batter, before the main event: sea urchin cream udon ($15.95).

  • Judy T. on 04/10/13

    Sit at the counter so you can watch them make udon.

  • Lawrence H. on 03/28/13

    Their udon is amazing! You can see them make it in the kitchen!

  • Joey W. on 08/07/13
