  • Totto ramen is terrible. Not worth the wait. You’re a sucker if you wait more than 10 minutes for a bowl of ramen.

      I hate long lines, too, but if you really think Totto is “terrible” (ignoring the long wait), you may be entitled to your opinion, but who gives a shit since no one agrees with you? And where, pray tell, does the discriminating Midtown_Eater enjoy ramen?

    Been to Japan. Haven’t yet been to Minca. Sadly, neither is particularly convenient for lunch.
