Fatty Crab, NY


You might ask yourself why I post such a sketch-like article with pitiful pictures about a restaurant that has been reviewed in much thorough and brighter ways by many other blogs.

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.

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!

And his roommates were pretty lucky since he’s a real pasta professional: he cooks sauces, keeps ‘em in the freezer, and eventually will prepare you perfect pasta dish in about 10 minutes. And it’s definitely better than any mac & cheese. Read the rest of this entry »
