    surprised....communal eating!

    momofuku used to have amazing pork buns, and a array of good fusion tasty dishes i was dissappointed in the pork buns last night, very chewy, so bad that i only ate one of the two, the pork shoulder had great flavor but was also chewy most disappointing was the set up now because you are forced to eat at a communal table, have to sit accros from each other when i complained to manager after waited 40 minutes for a table that we want to be seated next to each other (and there was room for that next to us he said we would have to wait another 30 minutes. it wasnt even that his attitude was the typical we're busy we dont care what you think very dissapointed to be fair the fried artichoke was good dishes are small expect to spend 60-70 per person w/o alcohol

    The place is a hectic and the portions are small. Some things are tasty but overall an unpleasant and pricey dinner.

    Go for the Bo!

    I visited the Ssam Bar for the first time yesterday, along with six friends. We went for the Bo Ssam, both literally and figuratively. It was a totally delightful experience: the pork was meltingly divine, the oysters were some of the tastiest I've had lately, and the sauces were really interesting, but not too hot even for my shy-diner friends. This is definitely a festive occasion meal, and worth the fairly hefty price. We also ordered appetizers (the brussels sprouts were terrific) and two desserts, both creative and delicious. The place was crowded, but not too loud, and the service was lovely. Highly recommended!

    The food was indeed creative and intriguing, however this did very little to compensate for an overall poor experience. I have never been elbowed and side-swiped so much in the span of an hour in my life. At one point I was practically knocked out of my seat. I blame the management for cramming that extra row of tables in the place that should not be there. However, the waitstaff should also have been more careful and apologetic as well. Also, we clearly needed a place to put our coats.

    Just get the Pork Buns and Bring Earplugs

    Aside from the Pork Buns and Bo Ssam, everything was a total let down. I got the 5 course: Hamachi with edamame paste was decent, pickles were watery and under-pickled, kimchee was good, sliced salty prociutto type ham with bitter red-eye gravy and mediocre baguette followed by yet another baguette course with whipped lard and butter (why two baguette courses with the same so-so bread?). The Bo Ssam was well made, but as pork shoulders are available in the supermarket for $1/pound, I don't understand how they justify the $200 price tag for this on their menu (rent, salary, etc., yes, but still). The oyster addition to the Bo Ssam did not work for me. I have never hated a desert before, but the grapefruit pie was so disgusting I couldn't eat more than one bite; the ritz cracker crust was way too salty, as was the grapefruit layer on top. Also, the music is blaringly loud, so don't go expecting to have audible conversations with the people you're with. There is no closet for winter jackets, so they get stuffed in the windows at the top of the right wall. Expect to be squashed up against your neighbors too. Seats are wooden hollow boxes = uncomfortable. I won't be in a hurry to go back here.

    Have been here for lunch and dinner. Loved it both times. The dishes are very well paired and the small dishes are inventive.

    Great lunch!

    Lunch is a great value but am wondering why David Chang does not put his prices on Menupages for consumer to see. Just wondering?
