a year in food: momofuku shiitake bun
what: shiitake steamed buns
when: june 2010
where: momofuku noodle bar in nyc
the deets: steamed buns or baos stuffed with shiitake mushrooms…delicious! the mushrooms were so flavorful…while these buns are traditionally made with pork- it was not missed at all! i don’t think i can say anything about david chang’s momofuku or his famous steamed buns that hasn’t already been said. all you really need to know is pure genius! definitely stop by the noodle bar next time you’re in NYC…OR if you’re all the way on the other coast like i am, i will share my attempt to recreate this at home in a future post.
