Marugame Udon set to open two new sites next month

Japanese fast casual dining chain, Marugame Udon kicks off 2022 with the opening of two new sites St Christopher’s Place and Canary Wharf on Thursday 3 February.

The two new outlets will join the brand's venues at the O2 and in Liverpool Street.

Marugame Udon has chosen the heart of London’s vibrant urban quarter - St Christopher’s Place and London’s central business district - Canary Wharf to give Londoners a taste of Japan’s favourite hand-made udon noodles.

Making udon noodles the Marugame way is a long, time-consuming craft. They are made daily from just three ingredients, wheat flour, salt and water in each outlet's open kitchen.

Diners and those on-the-go can taste authentic udon with menu favourites the Beef Nikutama (£8.45), udon with beef and caramelised onions in a dashi broth with a poached Onsen egg, or for a more traditional route the Kama Age (£3.45), the purest way to eat udon.

To celebrate not one but two new site openings, a Marugame Matsuri (the Japanese term for festival) will be held to celebrate the very best of Japanese culture in both areas.
