Privy 5 Overview

Share |

For the first time in Momofuku history, counter dining is not possible at the new midtown venue in the Chambers Hotel. David Chang, Momofuku mastermind and Tien Ho, executive-chef-partner are responsible for this French-Vietnamese bistro. Thanks to Tien Ho, the humble hamburger is traditional and on the menu (he is Texan!) Still you never know quite what to expect when you enter a Momo, it is the element of surprise which is often so pleasing. Midtown or no, there are no table-cloths, tuxedos, formality or chi-chi "sparkle". For Tein Ho, it's about the food, as well as the mood, and he prefers a downtown mentality. FYI "Momofuku" Ando was the Japanese gentleman who founded Nissin Food Products Co,"Chicken Ramen" was the first instant noodle soup.
