Momofuku Ssam Bar

Momofuku Ssam Bar is a modern classic, and the dishes on a recent visit were inventive and delicious. The fried duck necks sounded intriguing - and were unbelievably good! They were fried and were like meaty, rich chicken wings elevated with a spicy garlic chive sauce, pickled corn and beans.

The pork buns are always a must.

The blackened bluefish sandwich was crunchy with pickles and potato chips.

The charred octopus was really exciting with thin slices of green tomato, an avocado puree and mole in the form of thin crackers.

Dessert was a thyme mousse with a scoop of apricot, tapioca caviar and shortbread. So pretty!
