It was strange, while we were in NYC we didn’t really have too much Asian food. If there’s one thing we do it better here in Vancouver, it’s definitely that. I guess we’re used to always having a plethora of delicious Asian cuisine at cheap prices within steps of wherever we are so we take it for granted most times. However, our good friend CRPP said that we had to visit Momofuku Noodle Bar while we were in NYC. And as we all know, I love ramen so how could I say no?
I really loved the atmosphere inside. It’s really catered towards people who are constantly on the go and are probably on a quick lunch. We stopped by after our absolute last shopping session.
We started off with the pork buns which CRPP specifically told us we had to try. The buns were soft and delicious like the Siopao buns I oh so love. It had pork, hoisin sauce, scallions, and thinly sliced cucumbers. Perfect appetizer.
I could eat ramen everyday and still love it. For my main meal I decided to go with the Spicy Miso Ramen which had smoked chicken, Swiss chard, and sesame. The noodles were soft and chewy and the broth not too spicy or salty. It was just right :) Even in the absurd NYC heat, I thoroughly enjoyed this big bowl of noodles that left my stomach feeling tres happy.
Momofuku Noodle Bar is located at:
171 1st Ave
New York, NY
