Soba Totto is the extremely popular midtown Japanese noodle spot which offers a delicious menu of hot or cold Soba.
The focus of this soba house is the fresh, handmade buckwheat noodles made everyday. Mika Ohie – a stickler for serving up perfect bowls each time, oversees the kitchen.
One can choose from a set menu, which includes a really delicious salad topped with fried soba and a small side dish. I chose the “Okame” w/ kamaboko fishcake, rolled egg, shiitake mushroom & fried bean curd, which warmed me up perfectly on a chilly day.
Soba, in my opinion, is best eaten cold and the “Nameko Mushrooms & Grated Radish” might be one of the tastier bowls one can get.
Soba Totto is also known for it famous Yakitori.
During the week, lunch is a brisk affair with tables being turned for tight schedules and long lines. If you are in the mood for Soba then I would definitely recommend you try Soba Totto.
