Foo Foo Tei: Not Your Typical Ramen

Pin It

I spent the day at the 2014 Los Angeles Ramen Yokocho festival tasting 8 different bowls of ramen, thanks to everyone who read my post.  After about the 3rd bowl, they started to all taste the same, since most of them did tonkotsu (rich pork broth) ramen.

One place that doesn't have just the typical ramen menu is Foo Foo Tei in Hacienda Heights, East of Los Angeles.  Chef Murakami has a menu with 31 different ramen offerings.  Some are interesting combinations, such as, kimchee ramen, menudo ramen, kamonegi ramen (duck and green onions), oyster ramen, and torikara ramen (with fried chicken wings).  My friend Keizo Shimamoto introduced me to Foo Foo Tei via his blog GoRamen.

Ten-Shin Ramen #21
Crab Omelet Noodle Soup with Gravy  
$9.80

The crab omelet sits upon the noodles,
topped with scallions, fish cake, and flying fish roe.
and in a more like a gravy broth. 


I broke up the omelet and mixed it up
in the noodles, it was a hearty bowl.



Crab omelet with noodles...

Two of my favorites, seafood and an omelet,
add in noodles and I'm happy...


Not your typical ramen!
Ramen purists may not like this place.


Foo Foo Tei is a good size restaurant,
it's not a tiny restaurant, but not small either.
Be prepared to wait, esp on the weekends.



Ebi Wantan Men #11

I've had people ask me why no more "Ramen Monday" posts?  If you don't know what I'm talking about, Google "Jay Eats Ramen Monday" to find out.  We'll see...
