Lunch at the Ssam Bar, NYC

Friday, November 30th, 2012

Momofuko Ssam Bar was opened by acclaimed chef David Chang in 2006, the second in his rapidly growing restaurant empire. Earlier this week I had a great lunch there with my friend Mitch.

We started with Pork Buns just to whet our appetites.

Next was their specialty, Rotisserie Duck over Rice which is served with lettuce leaves and a chive pancake. The lettuce and the pancake can be used to make little sandwiches.

I also had a delicious broccoli salad on the side. The acidity of the vinaigrette was perfect to balance all the rich food.

This is a great place; and the menu is quite unique. They don’t take reservations, but at lunch time that is not a problem. The Momofuko Ssam Bar is located at 207 Second Avenue (13th St.).
