Momofuku Noodle Bar Will Serve Throwback Menu to Celebrate 10-Year Anniversary

Ten years of pork buns, ramen, and more.

"I hope not," David Chang told Grub Street recently, when asked if he was planning anything special to celebrate Momofuku's ten-year anniversary, adding, "I really don't want to." Well, apparently the chef has reconsidered, and the restaurant will embark on all kinds of festivities starting August 18. (It's fun news, especially considering Chang's broader impact on cooking in New York and beyond.) Plans include the release of commemorative merchandise; a limited-edition "peaches 'n' cream" cookie at Milk Bar; and, from August 18 to 24, there's going to be a "throwback menu featuring dishes selected from our archives over the past decade" served at Momofuku Noodle Bar. A Momofuku rep tells Grub Street the menu details are still being finalized, but we're guessing it may involve at least one iteration of pork buns. (Hopefully some fried chicken with Old Bay, too.)
