Momofuku, More, Again!

Yes I could show you a photo of the Momofuku Pork Buns, the house made pickle and kimchi plate, and the rice cakes with pork sausage and cilantro -- but isn't it better to imagine it?

Especially when I report that all our dishes were so much better than expected, magical, in fact. Picked cucumber, beets, potatoes, mushrooms, fennel, daikon, and a pile of messy, spicy, fermented kimchi. Two perfect pork buns bursting with fatty meat and cool cucumbers. A mound of rice cakes that looked more like packing peanuts -- crispy on the outside but with some squishy give in the middle -- smothered in spicy pork sauce with piles of cilantro. It was so good, so much better than expected, even though we knew it would be great. I wish I could go every single weekend.
