Momofuku exceeded my expectations. The Brussell sprouts were insane! I had the Hozon Ramen as well, and it was the best ramen I have ever had!

I was brought here by a friend who lives in the city, and it was incredible. I tried the pork buns, which were absolutely delicious. It is a small portion however, so you may need to order something else with it. I highly recommend this restaurant.

A busy place but efficiently and friendly run. With very good food for a decent price. Will definitely come again when I visit New York again. Lot of different people inside. Hipsters, Asian, tourists, etc. Which made it a real New York experience for me.

The traditional pork Ramen is the best I ever had anywhere including Japan. The broth is clear and tasty, not cloudy like some traditional shops. The slices of pork belly and tender and moist again, not dried out like traditional shops. The best part is the pulled pork added to the bowl that gives it some real mouth watering flavor.... More

I haven't been here in a long time but it is still as good as ever. The shrimp buns were good and the shiitake buns were great. The octopus was fantastic, especially the seaweed aioli. The chicken wings were nice. I find milk bar desserts are too sweet. But we had some cake bites, that were pretty good.

On a recent two day foodie trip to manhatten we ate at a few really great places but the best was by far this noodle bar. Really great flavors, really great atmosphere, and great service. A must

Not really much to say but wonderful noodles! Friendly staff and a good overall environment. New York always does it best when it comes to food and this place proves it even more! Definitely worth a visit if you are a fan of noodles and in the New York area.

Lined up before noon on a Saturday for my 60th birthday lunch. High expectations exceeded. The Momofuku pork belly raman was incredible. My wife had a dish that included shiitake mushrooms that tasted like they'd been lightly pickled in cucumber and ginger. Wow.

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.
