Where To Get The Best Tonkotsu Ramen in Boston
I know Totto Ramen first place in New York. It was very traditional Japanese resterunt look like In New York and I had super nice bowl of Ramen there. So after it opened one in Boston, I go there immedetely. Same as the one in New York, the soup is so rich and heavy favored and it because the soup they provide usually take 12 hours to cook slowly. I really like the very first bit of this rich flavored soup, however if you eat too fast or too much, you may feel a little sick and need a bottle of green tea. Overall, it has very good taste and the price is also much cheaper than the one in New York, however it is cash only.
