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

My husband and I, we heard about this restaurant so we decided to try it out. This is a stand alone restaurant that located in an industrial area of Hacienda Heights. 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

Really wanted to put 2 stars but it seemed mean, usually I love it when they give huge portions but I was suprised with this being a "ramen" place there was very little ramen but lots of everything else. I ordered the Umami Ramen and it was 20% ramen / 30% meat / 50% vegetables. Don't get me wrong because... More

We used to drive all the way to Little Tokyo (downtown between first and second) to enjoy japanese food. No more! A few blocks from the 60 are 2 very nice isolated places with incredible food. The neighborhood is remote, place is small, smells grease, you might have to wait outside, but the food is great. Nice variety of appetizers,... More
