They both feature a large cast, mystery, crime, mobs, a big city, and strange happenings. Lots of tension too. The atmosphere is similar.
Ensemble cast with intersecting/interweaving storylines set in a big city? Check. (So far Durarara!! takes this much more to the extreme, but HTR looks like it is heading in a similar direction as well.) Encounters with the criminal underworld of said cities? Check. (In HTR's case, the entire plot essentially takes place in said "underworld.")
People who enjoy Hakata Tonkotsu Ramens should enjoy Durarara!! as well. Both have a similar sort of setting - the colorful underbelly of a large city, and a very similar frenetic sort of energy to them. They also both have a lot of smaller storylines that come to gether to form a more cohesive plot. Both are very fun shows.

If you liked this anime, the other has similarly quirky characters in a large cast, taking place in a city with a lot of crime-solving involved.
Both series have very similar tonal qualities to them. Large casts of characters all involved in a city with a rather large criminal underworld. Hakata Tonkotsu Ramens just subtracts the superpowers and some of the comedy. It also is less "case-of-the-week" focused.

Among them is the dangerous, highly lethal drug "Anthem" which casts a dark shadow over the city. The SEVEN-O Special Crime Investigation Unit specializes in cracking down on Anthem. This unit...
