I always try and hit Momofuku when I’m in the city. The pork buns are the best I’ve had. The shrimp buns aren’t far behind. The Ramen is perfect. Great food, loud, fun atmosphere.

I'm probably no expert on fried chicken but we were a party of 8 and we all thought it was excellent. Only one drumstick left! We also had a pork/shrimp bun each which was delicious. We booked only a few days beforehand but were happy...More

Recently visited Momofuku Noodle Bar after watching David Chang on 'Ugly Delicious'. The food was AMAZING! We ordered the pork buns which are more of a bao style, the brocollini and beef ramen. All were absolutely beautiful and highly highly recommend. The beef ramen is...More

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 neighbourhood 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
