Downtown will soon have yet another place to slurp up a hearty bowl of traditional Japanese soup.

Marugame Udon has scheduled a grand opening at The Bloc on July 9, with a celebration that will include a DJ, gift card handouts and a taiko drum performance. The restaurant will also shave 30% off of the bill on the grand opening and 20% off each bill from July 10-14.

Marugame Udon specializes in Sanuki-style udon noodles, known for their square shape and flat edges, and soaked in savory broth. Diners can also customize the dishes with toppings such as tempura flakes and green onions. Bowls can be served hot or cold. Basic udon bowls start at $5.

The restaurant has a sizeable imprint in Japan, with more than 1,000 restaurants dotted across the country.

Hours are Monday-Friday, 11 a.m.-9 p.m., and weekends, 11 a.m.-8 p.m.

Coming to 750 W. Seventh St., (213) 628-3209 or marugameudon.com
