David Chang's Asian-accented American fare comes with an open kitchen, spare decor & dinner crowds.- Google
"I decided to opt for the pork buns and the spicy miso ramen."
"Last I orders the scallion ginger noodle bowl it comes with no broth."

This is not a ramen shop, it's an upscale noodle shop. The staff is super friendly and the space is clean, but...the noodles are definitely way way way overrated. While I do appreciate the thought that seems to go into it, definitely not worth nearly 40 dollars for some buns and a noodle soup.

I really woudn't have come here if not for clients, for some reason they wanted to take my boss and us here for happy hour, the space is way to tight for any party larger than 3, we actually got seated by 6 o'clock, typically you would wait for at least half an hour. We ordered shrimp, shiitake and sausage buns, they were mediocre. The spicy mayo was just ok, the combination was nothing new to me. We tried all of their ramen, I remember having the cold noodle before and it wasn't bad, so I gave it another try, but everything came out so salty, throughout the meal all I heard was how salty everything was, I kind of lost my appetite after awhile. The space is tiny, I understand that it's an interesting business model, people in the Village come and go, it makes an interesting scene because of the glass doors, but in the middle of my meal I had to get up to let someone out and waited for another table to get seated. How ridiculous. The servers came to ask how everything was, but all they cared was whether we finished or not, she kept touching my bowl asking if I was done. I took only a few bites that made me want to give them back the bowl and table since I didn't feel welcomed.

The wait may be long. But despite the wait, it was well worth it. Start with a bottle of sake, and get some appetizers and the buns. Afterwards you can't beat the traditional ramen and the chickpea and kale ramen was delicious. The food quality is well worth the price!

Here is where I had the best ramen of my life. Hands down, it was the best. I was also really into my spicy lychee slush. I'm sort of a baby, so I like anything that I can't taste the alcohol in. If you're like that, too, go get the slush right now.

Came in momofuku hungry and cold. Left with disappointment and not full. I would not say I am an expert on ramen but I do have personal experienced with decent ramen from Japan, so my opinion might be a bit different than some people. Walked in with 2 friends and we all got the same Momofuku Ramen. I was thinking it must be decent since the restaurant's name is the name of the ramen. Let's start off with the soup base, it is not rich in favor and not much taste to it either. Can not determine what kind of favor they are aiming for. Next is the ramen, it does not have the "bounce factor" as it should for decent ramen. The poach egg was mediocre at best. The pork belly and pork shoulder had decent texture but taste needs to be improved. Portion is small and not satisfying. You know how sometimes the food is only OK but the portion make up for the satisfaction in your tummy? This was not the case at all... However, the staff was very helpful on adding water and give us enough attention for our meal. I do not feel rushed by the staff to get us out of there. The space is kind of tight to be sitting comfortable. No place for winter coat so you have to keep it on your lap. Final verdict, I do not understand why this place is so packed. Maybe it is hip place to eat? The food is not the factor people come to eat for sure.

As usual, momufuku doesn't disappoint. Can get very crowded but worth the wait. Go for the Momufuku Ramen (has a bit of bacon taste) and of course the pork buns!

Big yummy bowls of noodles and delicious buns. We started with the brisket buns which were amazing. These were followed by a bowl of Momofuku ramen and one order of the pork knuckle ramen special. Both were fantastic and came in generous portions!

Loved loved loved the food here. Best rice cakes ever, awesome chashu buns and if they bring it back next summer, get the cold beef ramen, it's refreshingly delicious. Hey, check out my detailed review with pictures on getmygrubon.co.
