Holy noodle mania this place is so good! Came here for my uncle's birthday on he suggestion of my cousin, and we had a stellar meal! It's located on a back street in Hacienda Heights and has a small parking lot with lots of street parking next to the restaurant. We got there at 6:45pm on a Monday and asked... More

There will always be a line here during meal times but don't walk away. There is a reason for the line so relax and work up an appetite. The menu is extensive so it is easy to find something for everyone. There are 30 kinds of ramen from the miso to combination oyster, squid and mushroom to nouvelle beef menudo... More

Since I left Japan 20 plus years ago, one thing I really miss is the authentic Ramen restaurant. This place was not bad but it is not great by all means. One of the very important things about Japanese food (and their arts form as well) is its subtlety and simplicity. I felt like this restaurant tried so much to... More

Foo Foo Tei is a hole in the wall located in a residential area. This is my to go place for ramen. I've tried different ramen noodles and they are all amazing. The price is on the high side comparing to other ramen place, but the quality is definitely worth it. There is usually a line during rush hour, so... More

Small place with limited parking, however, it does have street parking. Expect line is long at lunch. We finally got a table after 30' wait. Menu has pictures of... More

Secretly hidden in a residential/commercial neighborhood in Hacienda Heights off the 60 fwy, is a secret little hidden gem… Foo Foo Tei. Getting there is interesting. Once you turn down on to Clark street, you start to doubt yourself in wondering if you took a wrong turn somewhere.. then, there it is! A tiny white little building that looks like... More

it's located smack in the middle of a residential/commercial storage area -- quiet .. seems unusual place to be. BUT .. don't let it fool you. Line and wait can be very long --- that's how you know it's good and worth trying they have 3 different kinds of seasoning to their broth - miso, salt or soy sauce. I... More
