We wanted to go to Foo Foo Tei, but since it’s further away and requires leaving work earlier for lunch, we went to What’s Up Men in Fullerton instead! It’s a new ramen place right next to Pie-ology and near Cal State Fullerton. There are four varieties of ramen available- Kuro (soy sauce), Cha (miso), Shiro (salt), and Aka (spicy miso). The texture of the ramen is comparable to that of Shin-sen-gumi. For lunch for $7.99 ($8.49 if you get the Aka bowl), you can choose a ramen bowl and a side dish of 4 pieces of gyoza, 1/2 curry bowl, 1/2 kimchi natto bowl, 4 pieces of California roll, 1/2 pork fried rice, 1/2 chicken teriyaki bowl, or 1/2 chashu bowl! For an additional cost of $0.50-$2.50 each, you can add butter, corn, spicy miso, dry seaweed, bamboo shoots, flavored boiled egg, deep fried green onions, bean sprouts, green onions, or pork! This place is pretty good, and I would go here again!
All of us ordered the Aka bowl (spicy miso)! If you just order the ramen bowl, it’s $6.50-$7.25 each. This bowl comes with leeks, bamboo shoots, chashu, and bean sprouts.
The 1/2 portion of pork fried rice! After eating the ramen, I was satisfied. Eating the fried rice too was a little too much. I would recommend getting the gyoza or California rolls if you just want a side and not an additional meal. The 1/2 portions are a decent size.
