As far as overseas chains go, few have been more welcome or needed than Marugame Udon. The value of handmade udon, a few minutes from Liverpool Street, for under a fiver… it’s very useful. This spot isn’t the the only location of the Japanese chain in London and less tends to be more here (even if a tempura bar is very tempting), but in terms of a quick and satisfying solo snack or lunch, this is the kind of canteen we need more of.
