Frank Bruni, the somewhat controversial New York Times food critic, has given a somewhat decent review of David Chang’s new restaurant, Momofuku Ssam Bar.


Well, it’s a bit of a Korean themed restaurant that is getting some buzz in New York. Chang himself is of Korean descent, and the word ssam is Korean for “wrap.”

In fact, I’ve read somewhere that they have a good bossam “off the menu” if you ask for it politely ahead of time. A pork feast for twelve.

Am I being too optimistically paranoid that Korean food is becoming a bigger deal in New York?
