    Has been my death row meal for a few years now. Pork buns, a seasonal appetizer, and the crispy rice cakes with spicy pork and Chinese broccoli. Great Korean flavor profile, updated perfectly. Love it

  • David S.

    Overall good. Thought it would've been better but still good. The sardines and the pork chops were my favorite.

    David Stephens · October 20
  • ZZubin

    Wow the rice cakes with spicy pork are like an Asian gnocchi. Delicious. The whole porgy ssam is fantastic as well

    Great spot in NYC. Small excellent menu - try the crispy buffalo pork buns and kimchi apple salad!

    Pro-tip: The weekend lunch menu (think shrimp gorditas and fried duck dumplings) is one of the best brunch alternatives in Manhattan and it’s served during one of the easiest time to catch a table.

    Delicious, around 15$ lunch. Dine in

    Be sure to ask for a vegetarian menu! I liked the Spaetzle.

    Cocktails are just fantastic. Their margarita blew my mind. Every dish was spectacular, but my favorite had to be the spicy pork with rice cakes. Could have eaten two of them.

    Call ahead and reserve a dry-aged ribeye for 6. It's tip-top

    David Brahler · August 20
  • Kirk M.

    Get the Bo Ssäm group dinner with oysters and pancakes!

    Kirk McMurray · August 11
  • Rob C.

    Ok, I'm hooked. The pork buns were insane, and also the spicy pork and rice cakes. Done and done!

    Rob Campbell · August 10
  • Jacob R.

    Large format meals are the best: duck or pork shoulder. Bring a crowd and your appetite. Buns also a killer option. Don't forget Milk Bar truffles afterwards.

    The Bo Ssäm is no joke. Be sure to do some stomach stretches before attempting.

    Paul Lau · July 20

    The Bo Ssam: more food than you (and the 7 other people you are with) can finish in one sitting, but you are damn sure going to try.

    Sissi Nie · July 13
  • Ryan C.

    Try the orange wine.

    Pretty expensive for non-impressive food that made me & a friend a bit sick for the next few days

    off the menu shiitake mushroom bun for your veg friends

    christine d · June 22
  • Doris H.

    The best thing on the menu is the pork buns. The other plates were just ok. Come with a larger party to tackle the pork and rib eye.

    Doris Hu · June 14
  • Timothy Y.

    Great pork buns (and pork in general), and the seafood is great as well. Try the house cocktails.

    Timothy Yuan · June 14

    Pork buns and Bo Ssäm.

    Mark Munro · June 11
  • Lindsay D.

    Do's: Pork Buns (duh), Pig Ear Ssam, Royal Miyagi Oysters; Don't: Maine Uni (terribly disappointing)

    Chinese broccoli

  • Samantha A.

  • Haneen Q.

    Was here for the duck. But make sure that you are a group larger than three unless you are all hungry men then you can handle it

    They have a separate vegetarian menu which you need to ask for.

    The ham dish was totally unexpected but incredible, like Italian prosciutto, only from Kentucky!

    Holger Luedorf · May 20
  • Lina B.

    The spicy pork sausage with little rice cakes was our favorite, creamy, spicy and delicious. The shrimp rolls were very good too. Great service.

  • Holly C.

    Just get several orders of the pork buns. It will be the best decision you make all day.

    Get all of the pork dishes. I loved the buffalo pork buns, the pigs ears, and the spicy pork sausage.

    The pork rolls are worthy of all the hype that they get. Yummmmm.

    The Momofuku Ramen is how David Chang began to build his Momofuku empire. It's smokey and delicious, especially with a generous dose of the new ssam sauce.

  • Lisa H.

    Pork bun and momofuku ssam bowl with lettuce. Chive rice cake is not worth adding dou.

    Lisa Han · April 5

    Pork bowl and potatoes

  • ZZubin

    Get 10 of your friends together and set up a bo ssam dinner. Great price and a whole lotta food

  • Dave C.

    Incredible. Can't go wrong with anything. Particularly enjoyed the diver scallops, steamed buns, and a penicillin to drink.

    Dave Cummings · April 1
  • Zii H.

    What's all the hype about? It's good, but not worth the money that you pay. Just go somewhere else with the same food, maybe in Sunset Park.

    Zii Hammad · March 26
  • Sam L.

    Surprisingly great for brunch

    Sam L · March 23
  • Nikolas F.

    Delicious, shareable small plates. Steamed buns are especially good.

    Shove as many Pork Buns in your mouth as possible.
