A long list of Momofuku alums looks back on the past 10 years at Momofuku Noodle Bar. Joaquin Baca
, who now owns Brooklyn Star
, sums it up: "At that time, we were just starting to realize we weren't an authentic anything, least of all ramen shop, and we started cooking whatever we felt like. A lot of it never made it to the table.
A lot of people accidentally ate cow stomach and enjoyed it before asking what it was they had just eaten. Success." [FWF][Yelp]
