Tried the steamed buns at Momofuku Ssam tonight. Decent, but way too much oil and sauce. The bottoms of my steamed buns were wet and soggy! Besides me, the restaurant was completely empty. Oh, besides the photo crew and the editors from the Dining Section of the NY Times. Does anyone know what Frank Bruni looks like? The photographers were taking pictures of a bunch of writer-types surrounded by their macbooks and ssams. Bizarre.
Try the buns at Province, at the corner of Church and Walker. So much better!! Tasty and at half the price. Too bad I don't live closer to Province, otherwise I'd eat there all the time.
