Mom and Dad were disappointed that they never made it to Momofuku on this visit, so Jude brought Momo to them tonight. Of course it's not ideal to eat this stuff after it's ridden the subway home, but it's still delicious.
Jude brought us steamed pork buns (right) and--a special tonight--steamed beef brisket buns (left). Momofuku is known for their pork buns. Two slabs of pork belly, hoisin sauce, pickled cucumbers, and scallions inside a steamed rice dough bun...what could be better? The brisket buns tonight had horseradish mayo, pickled celery, and cilantro.
My mom and I got chilled ginger scallion noodles and the guys got chilled spicy noodles (not pictured).
