This place is across from Sushi Yasuda and located in the basement of a building. My favorites are the soft boiled egg with seach urchin, beef back ribs, and the black sesame creme brulee! If this is your first time here, definitely try the hot foods first.

I arrived a little before 6pm and was able to snag a seat at the bar for happy hour. For a Tuesday night, the bar area was pretty busy! I ordered a dozen oysters to start off. I got the oysters very quickly and they were hugee! The picture I took don’t do it justice. There was no grit or sand in them what so ever. I polished them off like a pro.
Next I got some chicken wings because you can’t go wrong with korean chicken wings. The great thing about these types of chicken wings is there’s plenty of flavor on the fried skin without the messiness of a sauce. Tried the soy and garlic and it was not too salty or garlicy. I would definitely want to try the hot and spicy next time!
By the time I left (a little before 7pm) it got fairly busy, even in the dining room. I would definitely come back for the dollar oysters and chicken wings!
Came here for lunch as I had the day off and wanted to do something extravagant! I got seated next to the window which definitely have the nicest views into the courtyard of the MOMA.
From start to finish, the service was impeccable. I was never short on water and the food just kept coming from the tasting menu. I ordered the 4 plates tasting menu and it was wayyy too much food for me but I ate it all anyways! I couldn’t help but keep going!
My favorite dishes was the pumpkin soup, lobster and truffle, and the dessert! The lobster and truffle had the perfect taste of seafood with a bit of a ‘salad’ twist. The dessert, Gianduja Crémeux satisfied my craving for chocolate and the wafel streusel was like eating your favorite chocolate cereal with nutella ice cream.
Try to get a seat next to the window if you can for lunch. You can people watch and eat at the same time!
I came to this Totto ramen a little before 2pm on a weekday and there was plenty of seating. I ordered the pork bun, uni don, and chicken ramen. The pork bun was pretty good but a tad bit more mayo than I liked. The uni don was delicious! The uni was melt in your mouth soft and whatever sauce they put in the rice really complimented the dish. The chicken ramen was very creamy and fulfilling, but the best part was the noodles. Love the al dente noodles!
Would definitely come back again for the uni don and the pork bun. For lunch, the uni don was half off!
This is actually my first experience at a Indian restaurant and it turned out pretty good. The curries were delicious and the meat was tender. The naan was awesome and buttery. The cottage cheese thing that was so much like firm tofu but more flavorful was pretty good. I would definitely come back to try other dishes.
