Momofuku Ssam Bar never ceases to amaze me. I decided to go back after having a incredible taste of their pork bao buns with hoisin sauce. Today was different. today, the menu consisted largely of duck, and when duck is served I am always happy to eat it. Even if you don't like duck at all you will like this. It had a nice marrow broth probably made from the duck bones and a few other nontraditional additions. There was jicama in it which gave the dish a nice sour crisp flavor to it. Bok Choi was added for a nice earthy marriage between the duck and the land as well as a little spiciness.
The main reason why I went nuts over this gorgeous bowl of soup was the perfectly formed dumplings. The dumplings were perfectly cooked and inside them was expertly packed duck meat. The meat was extremely soft and tasted very savory with a little hint of garlic.
Ssam Bar also serves Mexican Coke so it just made this lunch one I wouldn't so easily forget.
Using The IPhone. A Love Story.
So this food blog is created and maintained through a IPhone. The pictures are taken with the IPhone camera, the notes are typed from the IPhone as well. This is a project for a screen studies course and will eventually.. soon.. become a IPhone application. In time you will be able to take the blog with you and visit some of the places from the blog! Thanks for checking it out and let me know if you would like me to visit one of your favorite places and I will add it to the blog!
