Someone named Marugame Udon is headed for a location in Sawtelle Japantown, landing along some prime real estate in West LA.
A tipster writes in to say that some business has been brewing at 2029 Sawtelle in the former Satsumi Imports location, and sure enough if you head there now you’ll see a big new ABC license pasted to the front. If the ownership name is Marugame Udon USA LLC, with parent company Toridoll also listed on the paperwork.
It’s early going for the space, so don’t think you’ll be slurping made-to-order udon any time soon. But this new location should be a boost for the neighborhood, and with beer and wine for sale it’s only a matter of time before this Sawtelle Japantown option draws massive numbers too.
2029 Sawtelle Blvd.
Los Angeles, CA
Update: An earlier version of this post postulated that Marugame Monzo was indeed coming to Sawtelle Japantown, but a rep for the company has denied those claims.
