:: NYC Eats :: Momofuku Noodle Bar

Last (last) March, I took a day off and went gallivanting down in East Village with my dear friend who was visiting. I have always wanted to try Momofuku so we headed over for an lunch. Bit of a track on the subway coming from the opposite end of Manhattan (UWS)!

Kiasu us were 5th in line; we picked a seat at the bar to get close to the action. We ordered the Momofuku pork buns, spicy miso ramen and some garlic chicken wings.

The pork buns are good if you like fatty, succulent pork belly. The noodles were pretty average to be honest; the wings were my favourite. We were so stuffed at the end; couldn’t even manage anything from the Milk Bar.

I would love to go back with a larger crowd just to try their friend chicken (two whole fried chickens, one southern style and one korean style – mu shu pancakes, bibb lettuce, four sauces and an assortment of seasonal vegetables). We spied a table of 6 eagerly tucking in and that chicken looked fantastic.
