Food Tweet of the Week: Toki Underground

So I haven’t tried the famous Toki Underground yet, but I’ve known about it forever. Why? Pretty much because its Twitter Feed.

@TokiUnderground has been talking about its opening for months, getting everyone excited for ramen and dumplings on H Street. The Washington Post described Toki as “long-discussed” and “much awaited,” and the restaurant has gotten first look reviews from pretty much every DC-based pub and blog. Not a small feat.

See the tweet I love…

Toki not only made me laugh, it also made me want to meet this @smudgetown and wonder about the other restaurants (for no particular reason really).

Since last year Toki has been tweeting about construction updates, other H Street restaurants, and answering directly to almost every tweet from soon-to-be customers. Impressive…now if only it would change its profile which still reads “Opening Date Soon.”  Actually, maybe the minds behind Toki have it that way on purpose to prevent the small space from getting too, too packed.

Toki Underground is located at 1234 H. St NE. For more information, call (202) 388-3086.
