I go to this place everytime I'm in NYC. I get cravings for the Momofuku Noodles. Great Kimchi also. Lunch time is best if you don't want to wait too long to get a seat.

The food here is marvelous, as is the value, but the wait time is out of control. They need to take cell numbers instead of making their potential clientele huddle indoors or out for OVER AN HOUR!!! Beware: the costs mount quickly when you order multiple apps and drinks, but it's all delicious.

I went to Momofuku noodlebar on a weekend afternoon. There was a small wait to get seated at one of their tables - they only have long family style benches, so you end up sitting with strangers wherever there is an opening. We were lucky enough to get the end of the table for a party of two. Their menu... More

Simple and changing menu. Ramen and noodles are a must. Good flavor and fast service. Would like to try more dishes but it was late (menu is reduced by 12am).

We had the fried chicken special (one southern fried chicken and one Korean fried chicken, plus sides, feeds 4-8, but only available at pre-made, early and late reservation times), and the chicken was exceptional, deserving its rating on one site as the 4th best fried chicken in the country. What really impressed us as much as the food was how... More

It is very packed and the stools are not comfortable...however, the food is great! I suggest the brisket buns if you are not vegetarian or vegan. They give you 2 in the order. Definitely a great starter. Also, the wings were delicious as well. Not fried! I ordered the hot scallion noodle dish. It was good, however extremely salty. If... More

This was my third time in a ramen restaurant and I am not an expert in this subject as I live in Brazil and this is not so popular here. But what I can say is that it was the most delicious ramen that I have ever tried! The pork was amazing and all the ingredients were perfectly combined! We... More

The restaurants style is really cool. The food is also great. We had momofuku ramen. It's just sad that the service seems so unhappy about their job. We went quite early for lunch and it wasn't crowded at all.

Thank Mariebune

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.
