Before David Chang became “Chef David Chang,” the world renowned restauranteur studied religion at Trinity College. We’ve been trying to make sense of this stumbled-upon fact, and we think we figured it out. Here’s our take:
Chang saw religious studies as something to be leveraged with great potential, perhaps in creating a church-like following for his real passion — quality restaurants and food. Case in point, Chang’s Momofuku Noodle Bar and its highly celebrated Pork Buns.
A NYC favorite, Momofuku’s Pork Buns have become a staple in most Manhattanites weekly lunch schedule. Our managing director, Bronson Lamb, lived atop Chang’s first restaurant, and went as far to say that these iconic bites are “heaven on a bun.”
We almost always believe Bronson, and we definitely believe in Chang’s ability to craft edible masterpieces. Anyways, Eater.com ran an in-depth piece on the Momofuku Pork Bun and it’s worth a hungry look, if not an empty-stomached visit to the East Village noodle bar. #Preach.
