Totto Ramen opens in Allston this Saturday, May 3, specializing in chicken broth-based ramen. This is the first Massachusetts location for the company, which has two New York City shops. Nghi Nguyen, a longtime fan of Totto, has left a law career to open up the Allston location after two solid years of sending monthly emails to the Totto ownership team, inquiring about expanding to Boston.
Around town, much of the ramen being sold is pork-based, but Nguyen thinks that American diners might connect more readily to Totto's chicken base because we're raised on chicken noodle soup. Here's the New York menu; Allston will be virtually the same. Take a look inside the space, a former frozen yogurt spot next to Tavern in the Square.
