EATER TIP: Chicken Sandwich only available 3-5:30pm or after 11pm
I was first introduced to chef David Chang about five years ago when my food show-loving fingers clicked on a Netflix title called The Mind of a Chef, an honest and delectable TV series produced by Anthony Bourdain. I was instantly enamored by chef Chang and his culinary ways: he was talented, frank, and deeply driven to make people's stomachs smile.
Being on the west coast, I was super thrilled when plans were first announced in 2016 for a Las Vegas location of his popular restaurant, Momofuku. A fitting match being housed in The Cosmopolitan, Momofuku Las Vegas opened its doors in early 2017 and I feel very lucky to have had a taste of the menu just before the new year.
I joined Stacy, Sherry, and Gary as we embarked on a tummy-filling adventure.
And now, onto the food...
The Tonkatsu Ramen isn't shown on the dinner menu, so you'll have to ask for its availability.
I had a lovely experience dining at Momofuku, but was super sad to have missed out on gobbling up their simple yet famous Spicy Fried Chicken Sandwich (darn you, time constraints!!). But there's always next time, and the likelihood that I will digest this sammie is as high as me losing $5 on a beer-drenched video poker machine.
