High expectations met

I'm looking for something unusual when I eat out, and Momofuku delivered. Everything on the menu looked tempting. When I finally made up my mind, I was thrilled with the food. It was very crowded, but we were able to get a table shared with another couple. But seated next to the kitchen, the... read more

Well from my profile pic you might be able to tell that I'm a fan, so my hopes were pretty damn high going here... They were absolutely met and surpassed. Started with the brisket bun and rib tips, both were amazing especially the ribs... Stupid good. Brisket was beautifully cooked, ultra tasty fat, and the ribs' ssam glaze was delicious.... More

Well, we were on our 10th anniversary, and my wife wanted to eat here. Got here at about 9 pm, and was told a 40 minute wait. OK, so we went next doorish, got a drink, they would text when ready. Waited and waited and waited. About an hour and 20 minutes they text. Table ready in 10 minutes! Finally!... More

I went to Momofuku Noodle Bar in February 2015. Service was great and seemed very organised for being such a busy and high-turnover place. The buns were very delicious, however that was the best part of the meals. We ordered Momofuku ramen and Spicy miso ramen. They were nice, but seemed a bit overrated. Potentially, their ramen are adjusted to... More

The Ramen broth is so rich and delicious , it's hard to describe . Very savory ! With noodles and a fried egg and some crisp pork belly... More

I went to New York on a business trip and decided to try Momofuku. I had heard so much about it, I had to give it a try. It was kinda neat because I did not feel out of place as a single diner because it is set up a communal seating. I walked in and told them I was... More

This has been on my list of NYC places for ages. 3 days ago I finally went. We were seated quickly for dinner on a Friday night around 10pm. You sit very close to other people on stools and low tables, but it's not a bad thing. We started with the pear smoothie..a little expensive for essentially that a pear... More

Waiter brought check straight after finishing our meal without us asking,food was OK. Place was very crowded, so the owner probably wanted to reuse our seats quickly,which I found annoying. I'd prefer another drink,but did not even get the chance to order.

We went here because my sister said we had to have the ramen bowl. The pork buns were incredible! So simple and so good. Loved it.

Staying in East Village

Neighborhood Profile
East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village, which offers plenty of unique small businesses catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the old-time neighborhood feel that you can still experience today thanks to a mix of locally-owned shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to wander up and down the streets searching for the newest hip spot, or an old-school favorite. In the center of the neighborhood, Tompkins Square Park serves as a gathering point for the New Yorkers that call the East Village home. The people-watching here is hard to beat.
