Momofuku Noodle Bar
190 University Ave., Toronto
Overpriced items, but beautifully executed food. I ordered the pork belly buns, $10 for 2 buns, very steep. My friend ordered the momofuku ramen, he said there’s nothing special about it, but it was presented beautifully.
At first I was very confused. I wasn’t sure if this was a Japanese restaurant or a Korean restaurant. ‘Momofuku’ sounds Japanese and it was a noodle bar so I assumed they served Japanese ramen. But I looked at the menu and they had Korean items like kimchi and rice cakes. Urbanspoon says this is a Korean fusion restaurant.
We were seated at the bar, which overlooked the open kitchen! It was pretty awesome. Watched all the cooks prepare and plate dishes while I ate! So interesting!
