Village Voice's Description
How good are the fried Brussels sprouts? So good that diners have been known to pick up the bowl and down the sauce left in the bottom. Chef David Chang, who also owns Momofuku Noodle Bar and Momofuku Ko, is the golden boy these days, and not for nothing. Ssäm means "wrap" in Korean; one section of the menu is devoted to delicious things to wrap up in lettuce--grilled pork belly, lemongrass pork sausage or an entire braised pork butt, served with kimchi and a dozen oysters. The lunch specials, like bibimbap with shredded Berkshire pork and kimchi purée or bahn mi sandwiches, are a good deal, and come with the house-made pickles.
Tips from foursquare
Everyone has to try the Compost Cookie (a standardchocolate chip with potato chips and other unexpected crunchy things) atleast once. Trust us, it's a salty-sweet revelation!
Recommended: Cereal-milk soft-serve ice cream, chocolate-chocolate cookie, candy-bar pie, chocolate cake with yellow-cake icing, banana cake with hazelnut crunch, Chinese-sausage focaccia.
Wash down some “Crack Pie” with a “Fancy Milkshake” – we recommend the Cereal Milk White Russian!
You must try the Crack Pie, the Compost Cookie and the Corn Cookie. The Pork Buns are a must try as well.
Two words: Crack. Pie.
