The original Momofuku spot from David Chang, Momofuku Noodle Bar specializes in noodles (obviously) but has plenty of other options that change seasonally. A great spot for lunch or dinner, Momofuku Noodle Bar is also open for late night dining on Fridays and Saturdays. The only reservations they take are for their special fried chicken meal: two fried chickens, one Korean style and one Southern style, served with mu shu pancakes, a variety of sauces and herbs, and vegetable sides.
