Marukame Udon

Say hello to cheap eats! This Japanese cafeteria style udon shop in the heart of Waikiki is awesome. If you drive down Kuhio Ave and you see a long line, it's probably for this place. The wait time can run anywhere from 20-50 minutes. 50 minutes sounds like a long time but if you have friends in line, time will go by fast. Once you get inside the restaurant and you see the udon, tempura, and musubi, you won't be grumbling anymore.

The kake udon and the niku udon are my favorite. The soup base for the bukkake udon is a bit too salty for me. The shrimp and sweet potato tempura are excellent. The tempura is super crispy and not oily. I don't recommend the musubi. I think the 7-Eleven ones are better.
