Momofuku Ko's Five Year Anniversary Dinner
Momofuku Ko turned five this year, and to celebrate David Chang and his crew brought back some of the classic dishes from years gone by for a limited two night engagement. The ten course menu featured classic dishes from the restaurant's history and cost $85—the 2008 price (the current menu costs $125). There was another rollback: the notorious photography ban was temporarily lifted, allowing us to bring you some of the fabled dishes, many not seen in the wild in quite some time!
I had the pleasure of dining with my friend the Food Doc, who I first met at Ko on christmas day back in 2008. He has eaten at Ko over sixty times, at least once a month since they opened! I haven't eaten there quite as many times (about once a year as it happens) but I certainly remember, and fondly, the dishes served during our meal.
Take a stroll down memory lane with the slideshow.
