Having lunch at Momofuku Ssam Bar today, I noticed minor changes to the lunch prix fixe menu that I raved about back in January. The Kimchi Apple has been replaced by the Sichuan Beef Tendon, shown above. The spicy dish is comprised of tender slivers of tendon, mango and peanuts, served cold. The tendon is silky and noodle-like; indeed, a server I am friendly with told me about a customer who once ate the dish and then complained that it contained no beef.
Desserts have been updated as well, with a choice of two, where before you had but one. Choose between the ice cream pie with its Cap'n Crunch crust and tart strawberry topping, or the Thai iced tea parfait with a tangy lemon mascarpone sprinkled with almond tea crunch. Both reconfirm to me Christina Tosi's true genius.
Still a great deal; now with more choice.
Lunch is served 11:30 a.m. to 3.30 p.m., 7 days.
