I ran around New York for 24 hours with my friend Geena. After hopping off OurBus (by the way, had a great experience), I grabbed my luggage and headed straight to Totto Ramen‘s original location in Midtown West. Previously I visited the Midtown East location, but could never make the time to wait in line at the first shop. Yelpers and New Yorkers claim the first location tastes significantly better in comparison to expansion spots.
I’m here to state: Believe the hype.
Yet instead of waiting 45 minutes during off-peak hours, I could have visited the Midtown East location with little to no wait times. Anyone who loves Totto Ramen should stop by the original location at least to fully experience why the business does so well.
My trip to the city included running into a few fashion week shops surrounded by long lines. I explored Soho, went shopping and spent an afternoon in 29Rooms. Food highlights include the fluffiest (questionably to die for) pancakes at Le Barricou and chicken liver pate at Hearth.
