Momofuku-Land

Much more than Orlando’s Disneyland, I love New York’s Momofuku-land. As a matter of fact, rising chef David Chang has built up his small empire of restaurants in New York’s East Village and although I’ve only been to 2 of the 3 places opened, I became a big fan of his ideas. And I’m convinced that the remaining third restaurant which is the fine dining place Momofuku Ko wouldn’t disappoint me either since it should represent the continuation or the total refinement of his collected ideas. I hope I can make it there one day. On the other hand his 2 regular places are delicious enough and already transport Changs creativity!
