Momofuku Ssam Bar
I visited Momofuku Ssam Bar a long time ago, so I cannot write a true review of the restaurant anymore. However, Momofuku is a very modern restaurant in that the flavor combinations they create are entirely new. Chef David Chang actually presented at the Harvard science and cooking lecture series this past winter. He discussed the creation of new recipes through mistakes and that only through mistakes can we make new innovations. Chang has won numerous accolades including 2006 Best New Chef by Food and Wine magazine.
The famed Momofuku pork buns.
Quite the crunchy sandwich with lots of flavor.
I’m not sure, but I think that was a swordfish. The carbohydrate bedding had slivers of crunchiness mixed with soft grains.
The parfait dessert was a symphony of tantalizing tastes and textures. The “dirt” felt crunchy yet fizzed into oblivion in my mouth.
