poached egg in the ramen? pork belly steamed pork buns. root beer? come on now... you can't go wrong here. true, you might have to wait a little bit... but the food is fantastic, and well worth it.

recently went for the $100 fried chicken, it was definitely not worth it. had better korean fried chicken at bon chon. not spicy and not particularly amazing, no unami effect for sure.

Pork buns with extra spicy sauce + Momofuku ramen, keep it simple and excellent. Drawbacks: painful to try to eat there with a group of 3 or 4 since they don't take reservations and loud music in certain areas of the testaurant. But the food is so good it's def worth a monthly visit:-)

Took out-of-towners here on a rainy Monday night. The food was pretty good, although the sliced hamachi was downright excellent! The pork buns are indeed a highlight, but I didn't care for the other versions (the chicken bun was just poor). All that said, the atmosphere was delightful. The energetic vibe combined with a reasonable bill made for a perfect choice for entertaining my tourist friends.

Have wanted to try these Momofuku's for some time so we began with the first one. Not wanting to deal with a long wait time we arrived 15 minutes before opening to find a line of ten people outside. Soon it was close to thirty. Staff was extremely friendly as we all made our way in. Felt like the start of a show. If you sit at the counter, with the kitchen staff working in front of you, the show continues. Lot's of fun. We found the service to be excellent. Tried the Ramen soup first. Very good but certainly not worth $16. The famous Pork buns...wow...now one of our favorite foods to have. Ya gotta have them. Tamale special this evening and they were good but not necessary. Interesting and good beer selection. Fully enjoyed the evening, certainly would recommend if you wanted to finally try this place, but I don't feel the need to go back...unless it was for those pork buns.

for a ny meal it is well priced, but considering that it is ramen, a very inexpensive food in general, it's still pricey. i found the broth fairly salty, and didn't feel it was worth the wait. but the bun things were quite good.

The Ramen and other dishes form this place are the BEST, although the sometimes service is annoying.
