Momofuku does not do take out

So I have been reading a lot about Momofuku.
Positive things.

I went during the winter. not impressed. way way over priced. and for 4 dollars more on a ramen soup you can have a poached egg. 4 bucks. one egg. come on. It's a noodle shop. right? just doesn't seem right.

So I read and respect the hounds daily. Some of the most respected people say the place is worth another try. Gotta try the pork belly in soup. suppose to be amazin. Now i'm not a big pork fan but i get the flavor on the soup. it's kind of what Rai Ken Ken is all about. gotta love the pork bones simmered for 24 hours in a clay pot. Anycase,I have called on more than one occasion to pick up, because it is so hot in there. I figured I would sip soup on HOT Humid day in my nice cool apartment. strange. i know/
and they never answer.
Goes into voicemail.
Tried to get take out tonite. A server basically said to me "we are not doing take out tonite". Perhaps they are understaffed. perhaps it is to hot. perhaps i am like every other hot and crazed nyorker right now....but that is not the way to do business. I give up on Momofuku. Rai Ken Ken has been back with welcome arms 3 nights a week.
