Marugame Monzo Brings Handmade Udon Downtown

Marugame Monzo Brings Handmade Udon Downtown

Monzo, which opened in March in Little Tokyo in the space that used to be Fat Spoon, is aiming a little higher, both with its style of udon and the level of service. It’s 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.
