Upon arrival you will likely notice 3 things...
1.) The line, no matter what time of day, there is ALWAYS a line. Just take a deep breath and remember this will all be worth it in about 20-45 minutes and that the line does move quite fast.
2.) This place is tiny. You'll either sit at the bar where you can watch all the cooking action at just an arms length away or in one of about 4 or 5 small tables. I'm not sure exactly how many as I've never had the pleasure of an actual table.
3.) You'll hardly be able to contain yourself as you inhale the delicious plethora of aromas floating out onto 52nd street.
My favorite is the Totto Spicy Ramen with Pork Belly (you can also get chicken but I highly recommend the pork). If you're lucky they may even have their Pork Belly Steamed Buns as a special. These little pillows of savory goodness are like a sneak peek into the gates of heaven. YUM! Visit http://tottoramen.com/ for more details and keep in mind that they do not take reservations, do take out or deliver. The only way to experience Totto Ramen is to wait...
