Must try: Pork Bun, Shrimp Bun
 

Momofuku Noodle Bar was David Chang’s very first eatery that launched his enormously successful Momofuku brand of restaurants.

The concise menu here primarily focuses on ramen, seasonal eats, buns and daily specials. They also offer a fried chicken dinner (priced at $100) for parties of 4-8, which must be reserved in advance. Dessert offers soft serve and cake truffles.

Chang’s eats are inventive and extremely gratifying. The Ramen was good enough though I still think Ippudo rules. However, what I just could not stop eating were the buns! These soft steamed beauties filled with melt in your mouth pork belly or fried shrimp with just the right crunch are seriously addictive.

The Noodle Bar is priced just right, that is of course if you can stop with just eating one order of them buns! I know that I certainly couldn’t.

 

Here is some of what we ate:

 

Heirloom Tomato – watermelon, crab, avocado

 

Pork Bun – hoisin, scallion, cucumber

 

Shrimp Bun – spicy mayo, pickled shallot, iceberg

 

Momofuku Ramen – pork belly, pork shoulder, poached egg


 

Ginger Scallion Noodles – pickled shiitakes, cucumber, cabbage


 

Spicy Miso Ramen – smoked chicken, swiss chard, sesame
