Priding itself on its handmade, fresh dishes, Marugame Seimen chain of self-service restaurants specializes sanuki-udon. These udon (noodles) have a characteristic springy texture and natural wheat flavor. The noodles are made right in front of customers in an open kitchen. Made from only domestically produced wheat, salt and water, no additives whatsoever are used. Side dishes include tempura, omusubi (rice balls) and others.
