nyc / momofuku noodle bar / pork belly buns
set foot into david chang's very first restaurant, momofuku noodle bar, and try out his signature pork belly buns! 😍they're reminiscent of the peking duck steamed buns i grew up eating and loving. the pork bellies here have a slight taste of glazed ham, but immediately after you are reminded you are eating pork bellies by its sweet, savory taste and juicy, soft texture.
despite how everything appears to be portioned, nothing tastes overpowering. every ingredient plays perfectly well with each other. but since the pork protrudes from the bun a bit, you can grab a couple bites on the corners before going to town.
i highly recommend eating one of the buns first, then getting their signature pork ramen, and finishing your meal off with the second bun 🔥
