Village Voice's Description

There are a half-dozen Asian-noodle palaces in the East Village, but this one manages to do it with a twist. The focus is on ramen;the Japanese adaptation of Chinese lo mein;but with Korean flourishes. Thus you can get a fiery bowl of radish kimchi or a quintet of meat-stuffed dumplings as an appetizer. The ramen themselves are available in only a handful of permutations, foremost of which is "Momofuku ramen," featuring a dense, pork-based broth, an egg that partially poaches as you watch, and wonderful hunks of fatty, griddle-sauteed pig.

    This is a must-stop for me when I’m in NYC, but you can’t go wrong at any of David Chang’s restaurants. -Monica Pope, Top Chef

  • Time Out New York on 10/05/11

    Get pastry chef Christina Tosi’s pretzel cake truffles, which spins bodega pretzels into supremely moist cake balls. They’re one of our #100best dishes and drinks of 2011.

    David Chang's first restaurant is still turning out inventive, deeply satisfying, affordable food, and the buns and ramen are just as good as you remember. [Eater 38 Member]
