NEW YORK CITY | Momofuku Noodle Bar is the OG Momofuku restaurant, and was opened by David Chang in 2004. It’s the restaurant that put David Chang on everyone’s radar. It’s the restaurant that made steamed pork buns mainstream, and introduced New Yorkers to some next level ramen. Yeah it’s kind of a big deal.

Ramen is the thing that’s constant here, along with a selection of dishes that change with the seasons. For us it’s all about the original Momofuke ramen – a perfect combination of pork bone broth, pork belly, pork shoulder and a poached egg. The kimchi ramen, if it’s on the menu when you visit, is great too. Buns are a must too. The original pork bun with hoisin, scallion, and cucumber is still amazing, as are all of them really, in particular the chicken meatball bun with jalapeño, iceberg, and paprika mayo. To finish things off go for whatever the rotating soft serve flavour is at the time.

For drinks it’s a small selection of around 20 different sake, wine, beers, and ciders, all of which match well with the food. We love the Spicy Lychee Soju Slushie.

Momofuku Noodle Bar is walk ins only, but if you can, and need to, book for the caviar and fried chicken special which is great but goes require a group of at least 4 people as you get two whole chickens, 133g of caviar, chive crepes, white barbecue sauce, creme fraiche with crispy shallots, potato chips, julienne cucumbers, and scallions. It’s well worth experiencing at least once in your life.

For something different from the Momofuku family try the Singaporean influenced food at Momofuku Ssäm Bar, or the fantastic fried chicken burger at Fuku.
