The first restaurant of David Chang’s Momofuku is also his most affordable and accessible. This is the restaurant that started the ramen craze in New York City and should be on every foodie’s “to eat” list. Chef Chang has a magic touch, as everything he sends out seems to have a transcendent air to it…even simple fare. First timers should start with the steamed pork buns: soft bread concealing saliva-inducing tender pork. Then dig in to a steaming bowl of ramen, filled with pork belly and pork shoulder.
