Hot for Summer: Cold Ramen Bowls at Maru Japanese Noodle Shop

For 2021, Maru's cold noodle bowls feature a vegetarian kale noodle.

Westside noodle joint Maru Japanese Noodle Shop has launched its new cold ramen bowls for summer 2021.

This year, they decided to mix things up  with the protein options and noodle variety. While in the past, Maru’s cold noodle bowls featured a charshoo pork, this year, the three options include baked tofu, roast chicken, and poke.

All of the new ramen bowls also feature kale noodles, which give the noodles a green hue. It’s also vegetarian. Maru’s summer noodle bowls also all include cucumber, edamame, tomato, mango, seaweed salad, and sesame seeds.
