Udon kitchen sets its sights on London’s iconic The O2 with news of second UK opening

Following a successful opening of the restaurant’s debut European site in London’s Liverpool Street, Marugame Udon continues its plans to bring Japanese noodles to the capital with a second opening at The O2 in Greenwich on Monday 13th September.

Marugame Udon has chosen London’s home of live entertainment and music, The O2, as its second restaurant in Europe, ahead of further expansion around London and the continent. Greenwich locals as well as visitors from around the UK will be treated to a taste of authentic Japanese cuisine from Marugame’s open-style kitchen.

The O2 is the world’s most popular music, entertainment and leisure venue, hosting over 200 events per year in the arena and home to Icon Outlet, one of London’s most exciting retail destinations.

The 4,500 sq ft restaurant at The O2 spanning over two floors will feature 150 covers including a stylish mezzanine for dining in. Those on the go can enjoy takeaway, as well as the pick-up point for click and collect customers.

Marugame Udon pride themselves on making fresh, handmade udon noodles in-house throughout the day where customers and passers-by can observe the hustle and bustle of the energetic kitchen and see how each dish is made right in front of their eyes. The restaurant has a focus  on speed and value for money, as well as exceptional quality. The team is led by Executive Chef and Udon Black Belt, Kouhei Honkawa who has brought his expertise and passion to Europe, creating a menu that is affordable and delicious,

With a mission to introduce udon to all, Marugame Udon introduced its first ever vegan menu making up 30% of the main menu offering launching in Spitalfields when was this? It became a firm favourite for vegan and flexitarian diners and will now be offered to The O2 diners.

Janine Constantin-Russell, MD of Icon Outlet and the Entertainment District at The O2 commented: “We’re delighted to be welcoming Marugame Udon to The O2 to bring their fresh Japanese noodles and exciting flavour combinations to our visitors. With the reopening of the arena, we’re excited to also be welcoming back music fans to the destination, and Marugame Udon’s quick service style is a fantastic dining option for our visitors to enjoy a bite to eat ahead of a show. Here at The O2, we’re continuing to diversify our offering of food and beverage brands on-site and are excited to be bringing a new cuisine which is matched in both quality and value to our customers.”

The high street has seen a spark in a series of international fast-food chains landing in the UK, with several shaking up the UK’s high street. The 4,500 sq ft Marugame Udon restaurant at The O2 is the second site since the Liverpool Street opening in July, with exciting expansion planned for London later this year, and the rest of the UK and Europe in the near future.
