Finally got to check out a ramen place I've been wanting to go to a few weeks back called Foo Foo Tei in Hacienda Heights off Seventh Ave. The place is a little small, but the wait was minimal.

A cutoff picture of their menu.

Miso Pork and vegetable ramen with extra egg. The ramen came out very hot, so +1. The broth had a strong pork/meaty flavor to it, which overpowered the miso a little bit. There was a lot of veggies in this with cabbage, onions, and some sprouts. The pieces of pork were big, chewy(but not overwhelmingly so) and almost sweet tasting. And yes, there werenoodles underneath it all, which I found to be perfectly cooked. This was a pretty big bowl that I had trouble finishing.

Service was friendly and efficient. I'd come back here again to try something else on their menu. Nice to know somewhere I can get my ramen fix now.

On the way back, I stopped by Beard Papa's inside the Puente Hills Mall (same entrance as AMC Theatres) to get some cream puffs. If you've never had it before, I think it's worth a try. I don't really like cream puffs, but I think the word "cream" is a bit misleading here because it's more of a custard. They have regular (vanilla) in which you can see the specks of vanilla bean in the cream and some other flavor of the day. I recommend their regular. It is a bit pricey with one being over a buck, but it's a nice treat to have every once in a while.

The puffs are a bit flaky and airy. The nice thing about them is that they're filled to order, so no soggy puffs, unless you leave them out for a while.

Worker X making my order.

I got 6 for around 10 bucks. The more you buy, the cheaper it gets. Sorry, I should have taken a closeup shot of the inside, but we all ate these pretty quickly.

They've also got some drinks and other things, but otherwise not too big of a menu.
