Momofuku is quite the buzz word being thrown among foodies (aka every girl) and I knew I had to get a piece of the action. After months of talking and talking and talking and talking about going, I finally stepped through its wooden doors.
Momofuku Noodle Bar originates from the Big Apple and specializes in taste buds for asian fusion cuisine. After some Yelping and Urbanspooning, I found out that this gem is quite notorious for its compost cookie, KFC (Korean fried chicken) and pork buns.
Dan Dan Mien is a type of spicy, sweet, and tangy Chinese noodles dish topped with minced pork, green onions and scallions. Surprisingly it had an authentic taste to it.
Now this is one of the reasons why I came here to eat. I had really high hopes for these famous little buns stuffed with pork belly, hoisin, scallion and cucumber; needless to say it was a bit over hyped. Still delicious though
Where do I start with this? First of all, I’ve never really tried Korean fried chicken so I didn’t know what to compare to but ohhhhh my was this chicken-licious!!!! The sauce, the twice-deep-fried, the crispy skin, the tender meat, the crunchy cartilage…the list could go on for another mile. I was so close to ordering round 2 but decided to leave some room for desserts (wah).
The noodle bar was on the ground floor while the second floor was their milk bar. Basically it’s this small cooler room that had a variety of cookies and pies for customers to purchase. I picked up their popular 3:
Crack pie: toasted oat crust, gooey butter filling (my absolute favourite!)
Compost cookie: pretzels, potato chips, coffee, oats, butterscotch & chocolate chips
Corn cookie: corn, corn & corn
I thoroughly enjoyed my first (never last) Momofuku experience and sometimes, I still dream about their fried chicken.
