Momofuku Noodle Bar

171 First Ave.
New York , NY , United States
(212) 777-7773

David Chang’s Momofuku empire—four restaurants and three bakeries in New York City, plus a couple foreign ouposts—started with this super casual East Village ramen joint in 2004. The Noodle Bar is the most affordable of all of his spots and the menu still features some of his most famous dishes, including the pork-belly filled buns and several kinds of ramen featuring his extra-rich and smoky broth. This branch is also the only one where it’s possible to reserve for Chang’s famous fried chicken dinner, which includes two birds (one Southern style, one Korean style) with mu shu pancakes and bibb lettuce for DIY fried chicken wraps. For dessert, a soft serve machine dispenses ice cream by pastry chef Christina Tosi in inventive flavors like salty-pistachio and burnt honey.
