Momofuku Milk Bar: I’m standing at the light oak counter waiting for my pork bun sandwich to eat. I have coffee too. It’s hot so I watch another customer toss hot sauce on his. I discovered something new: food across the street from the Eye and Ear Infirmary where I am supposed to be. Momofuku is located at 207 2nd Avenue. A family of six competes at eating their bun. The mother quickly grabs another and says, “This is so much fun.” Moments later, my sandwich comes. I enjoy every bite of the pork belly, cucumber, hoisin, scallions on a milky cloudy bun. I agree with the packed customers…for $9.00 you get two mini ones, and it’s worth a trip to the east village. Catch it if you can at www.momofuku.com.
