Totto Ramen!!

Since it opened almost two months ago, I have been dying to try Totto Ramen.  I finally found a willing and available person to join me today!  Ms. B, our newest employee, was as excited for Ramen as I was.  We arrived and I was thrilled that there was no line outside.  We put our name on the list and waited a short while for two seats to open.

We sat at the counter where we were able to get a great view of the chefs at work.  I ordered the Totto Spicy Ramen.  The soup is chicken based which isn't always the case at these ramen joints so I was thrilled.  I watched as they poured the spicy oil into my bowl and spooned some broth into my bowl.  They added homemade noodles, onion and scallions with one sheet of nori (seaweed).  I also asked for a seasoned boiled egg.

Look at that beauty!  I was practically drooling when I dipped in my spoon and mixed everything together.

Ms. B was also kind enough to let me sample some of her Spicy Bamboo Shoot.

Yup they're as spicy as they look, but totally edible.  The chefs were impressed at her tolerance for spicy food.

I LOVED Totto Ramen.  It is a delicious lunchtime treat that is quite filling.  The portions are large, but not overwhelming.  The noodles are fresh, the broth is delicious and you have options to add (or remove) items on the menu.  I will definitely be going back and can see myself eating here multiple times during the winter.  Only thing is with only 16 seats, it's a bit unpredictable how long you'll wait to taste the goodness.

Hungry yet?
