Marukame Udon – Honolulu, Hawaii

We’ve known about Marukame Udon for years but were scared away by the long lines. We finally went, and the wait wasn’t as bad as we feared — about 30 minutes of a steady crawl through the line. Nothing compared to the holdup at Disneyland.

Upon observation, it appeared that the 2pm – 3pm timeframe seemed somewhat less crowded. Luckily, our Pearl Harbor tour got up back to Waikiki at the perfect time, heading to Marukame for a late lunch. Our USS Missouri and Arizona Memorial visit lasted from 8am – 3pm and we were hungry.

Udon is this a thick, white Japanese noodle. Though not as popular as Raman, I like it better. The noodles and toppings were tasty for sure. Surprisingly, for a city with lofty food prices, Marukame’s were downright inexpensive. No wonder the place is always crowded.

In addition to the noodles, you can add extras in the bowl or on the side. I ordered the Big Chicken Katsu and the Udon. If this sounds familiar to you, I featured this meal on my Thanksgiving post in 2021.
