“Hulu-lu is a popular ramen shop in Ikebukuro and it has been widely accepted as one of the best spots for salt and soy sauce based ramen. The high quality of the food is very well furnished and sophisticated with so much thoughts put into every detail. The thin noodles that come with the good chewy texture perfectly match with the lightly flavored chicken based soup while enjoying the nice relaxing Hawaiian music inside. The salt based ramen here is marvelous and a "must order", while the soy sauce based ramen are very decent. It is our "must go" place in Ikebukuro for a reasonable and fine local food. A shop is a nice cozy place but it might be a little bit too small for such popular place.
