Momofuku is already a pretty cool place to eat, but if you book ahead you can get their fried chicken lunch or dinner, which takes everything to a whole new level, as my room mate Diya can confirm.
We started out with shrimp buns.
And sausage buns.
Then came the chicken with these four sauces: spicy chili, duck sauce, scallion sauce and
With fresh veggies.
And the masterpiece: one southern style buttermilk fried chicken and one spicy Korean fried chicken.
My favorite was the Korean fried chicken, with duck sauce wrapped in a pancake.
And the not so tasty aftermath of our meal:
And for desert salted pretzel truffles, "The Ritz" cookies and soft serve from Momofuku milk bar.
Make sure you reserve in advance, it's pretty popular and now I definitely know why! Find them in East Village:
