Classic momofuku - awesome combo of flavors and textures and a great palate opener.
warm asparagus – king crab, egg, chili butter ***
The first of the killer WTF asparagus duo. Soft egg was so damn sexy with the sweet crab and asparagus.
mushroom + asparagus – watercress, goat cheese, pistachio ***
The combo of the almost silky mushroom with the asparagus and creamy goat cheese sauce was outstanding.
soft shell crab – pickled lotus root, jicama, sugar snaps **
I love me some soft shell crab and this was hella fun. I'm used to eating the soft shell crab simply with no accompaniments, but the combo of the bright pickles/jicama really amps up the sweetness of the crab.
Earthy and tasty dish which is almost an amuse to the onslaught of meats.
pork chop (bev eggleston, va) – potato, ramps, green peppercorn **
I love-a tha pork and this was something magical. This basically was the best quality pork chop that honestly looked like pork belly - had tons of melt in your mouth fat...in a good way.
Delicious chicken flavor with some amped up umami notes with the maitake.
reserved cheese **
Soft stinky cheese with a ton of condiments - pretty friggin great. I dug the espelette powder and the truffle honey.
I absolutely looooove chocolate cookies and these are out of control delicious. Crisp on the outside, perfect chewy texture, with a ton of melting chocolate chips. Really a WTF cookie and quite delicious with whole milk...or for D'Artagnan - armagnac :)
