The Noodle Bar: Momofuko in Toronto

There is a lot of talk about the Momofuku restaurants. This visit was to the Noodle Bar.

Shiitake bun with hoisin, scallion and cucumber, delicious.

Peameal bun with sauerkraut, mustard, scrambled eggs and pickled shallots.

Momofuku ramen with pork belly and shoulder, nori, chopped scallions, fish cake, napa cabbage and poached egg. The texture of the noodles was terrific, but the broth rather thin. This might be personal taste as I prefer the "rich" broth at Kinton Ramen.

Fried chicken (12 pieces, legs and thighs (the best parts for me) for $40.00) with Korean BBQ sauce, sesame and chopped scallions. Not what I expected, but the chicken was perfectly cooked a pointe, so juicy, and very tasty. I would return just for these legs.

Japanese yam with shaved katsuobushi (dried, fermented and smoked tuna), chopped scallion and mayo. My partner loved this dish (it was good) and she would return especially for this.

Pig's tails with a chili glaze accompanied by dill pickle and fermented carrot. The tails were perfectly cooked and juicy. 

Smoked chicken wings with pickled, garlic and chopped scallions. This is another dish to return for, very tasty, especially with the added touch of smoke, and cooked properly.

Sticky date, brown butter and sugar chocolate pudding. If you have real sweet tooth, you might like this. Not for me, but my partner quite cared for it.
