I’m constantly trying to find curious things. Today I did not even have to leave my house to find this curious picture of a business name of which my friend Melvin shared on facebook.

Soba Totto is located in New York City on 43st between 2nd and 3rd avenue. I would think that since the restaurant is in one of the biggest melting pots in the world they would have least verified what it means in spanish.

A few months ago I remember some buzz going around here in Puerto Rico on  Jumo.com which here locally means someone is drunk. There are so many ad and company names that mean something else in other languages and cultures.

Can you name a few?

Does anyone know what it means?

    Colgate pronounced in Spanish it is not so appealling.

      I had never thought about that. I guess if should be by the similarity of Cuelgate 🙂

    Soba is a Japanese noodle, soba means buckwheat. Totto is the last name of the family that owns the restaurant.
