momofuko ssam bar mini review

jon | Aug 28, 200603:54 PM     21

went last night around 9. not too crowded but definitely not empty. very very very clean inside. counter is at the end of the restaurant and if there is a line, would probably wind through the counter/tables area which could get annoying. the ordering line is similar to chipotle, you pick your ssam and then it goes down the line to 3 other fillers. i ordered the pork with kimchi, bacon black beans and rice. i cant tell if you will be able to add to your ssam, nobody asked if i wanted any substitutes or additions. anyway, rice tortilla was taken out of a steamer and filled very generously with rice, pork, beans and kimchi and hoison sauce then wrapped in aluminum foil. david chang was there making sure everything was going smoothly.

as for the ssam, it was real good. the pork was moist and delicious, the kimchi was sweet, not spicy and the beans and rice were perfectly prepared. i would highly suggest giving this place a shot. total cost for the pork ssam without drnik was $9.75 with tax and i was definitely full.
