The Momosan on Lexington Av is really a hip/chic place. It’s quite small, thus usually packed and you will need to wait a while for a table. Was there alone and got a place on the spot. They serve super cold and crisp Kirin lager,...More

Frankly didn't expect it to be as good as it was - at 6.30PM on a Saturday if you're not packed, one wonders what the problem is. Disappointed that the tables are reserved for only 3 or more - even if the restaurant isn't full,...More

There are 3 important things in a bowl of good ramen. Soup base, choice of ingredients and texture of the noodles . Texture is a relatively easy task when one opens a ramen joint. Choice of ingredients can be simple, fancy or sophisticated. The soup...More

Chosen for dinner one night in our travels. Small and cosy place but little bit noisy. Service was quick and good and all our ramen dishes were great. They even have three kinds of Asian beers on draft which I thought was ambitious. Can fully...More

My boyfriend and I visited Momosan Ramen and Sake for lunch. The ramen was very good, and so was the pork belly bao. Would highly recommend.

I did not have peanuts. But I& this is a health question, best to call the restUrant, talk to the manager, and be sure. Many Asian cuisines use peanut oil. This is really not a question for a reviewer. Too risky. Thanks... More
