Momofuku Ssam

Recommended by: Michael Symon (Chef, Iron Chef America), Jim Nelson (Editor-in-Chief, GQ), Branden McRill (Co-Owner/General Manager, Pearl & Ash), Amber Stevens (Actress), Jacques Pepin (Chef & Author)

Cuisine: Global, Korean. Price: $$. Location: Manhattan, East Village.

This is the perfect spot from David Chang to start eating and not stop. Between the ridiculous melt-in-your-mouth steamed pork belly buns, variations on country hams, awesome cocktails and tasty off cuts, you’re not going to want to leave. We love the whole rotisserie duck ssam if you arrive in a group (3-6 people) with a big appetite. No need to be scared of the wait – the back bar is one of our favorites in the city.

“I just love their food.” – Michael Symon (Iron Chef)
