Really fun happening place - love the bowl

Got noodle bowl with various meats. It is all about the broth, and the nice egg on top, and the sliders. Though one days I'd like to go and have the two chicken meals with trimmings with a bunch of friends. Next time.

As a ramen lover I had high expectations for Momofuku but was disappointed as I did not find the food complex or delicious, as it is described by so many others. I think many go here because of the hype and rate the food as satisfying because they have nothing else to compare it to.

This was the best, bar none, bowl of noodles I've ever had - and I have had plenty in my life. My order had tender pork, beans and kimchi and it was so good. Completing the meal was an equally good pork bun.

My son is a lover of ramen noodles so to treat him I wanted to find the best place to get them in New York City when we visited this weekend. Well let me tell you, the place is worth every drop of rain we waited in. The food is fresh, delicious and every bite is an experience. The staff... More

I was skeptical of this purported noodle shop, but by the time I had finished a delicious chicken bun, vegetables with delicious seasonings, and my wonderful noodle bowl all washed down with a delicious local draft beer, I was a believer.

We couldn't leave NYC without eating at the Noodle Bar and we were not disappointed. The food was great and so was the service. I imagine at lunchtime it would be crowded, we got there close to 2pm, there was no need to wait for a spot to eat. The food was great, we shared David Chang's famous Fried Egg... More

Great place to stop in for a quick lunch at the noodle bar during the week. The weekend can get a little crazy due to tourists. If you do come for dinner with more than 3 people, you should definitely show up early as there is usually a line. The Momufuku ramen is always delish and you can't go wrong... More

Tiny little restaurant, great flavors, not sure why the fried chicken is so popular, the buns are full of flavor, beer and sake only

I visited this restaurant several times and it was worth the little waiting times (they don't take reservations). The combination of high-quality and creative food, good prices and the rather casual setting are unbeatable, particularly in NY! The SSAM sauce that is part of a number of their recipes is available for purchase to take home some memories.

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.
