    I had the crack pie this evening. It was worth the purchase! Enjoyed it a lot more than the compost cookie. I really liked the pork bun & my ginger-scallion noodle. But I'm especially glad I had the ginger beer. That was so tasty! Thanks for a fun lunch!

      I ate the crack pie and it was very tasty, worth the money. The other treats I got like the mint bar was also tasty.

    I arrived early so I went to explore the hotel a bit. We bumped into Wanda and Larry, MAM members who ended up joining us. I enjoyed the food. The service was a bit hasty a little like cafetaria style. Overall, I liked what I had. Thank you all for joining me in this foodie adventure.

      Thank you for organizing it, Karlee! It was fun!

    Just barely made it on time, I'm glad all the subways were running on schedule! The food was interesting, I don't think it wow'd me though. Still, for $15 it was pretty good. The rice pudding was a bit strange, but I guess Momofuku isn't known for being conventional (actually, I've never heard of it before until this meetup). Thanks Karlee for organizing!

      Thank you Phil for looking into the map and actual directions. Otherwise we could all be late!

    I actually enjoyed this lunch outing. The Pork Bun wow'd me! ;) The Smoked Chicken Ramen wasn't too bad. The Composite Cookie.. too rich for my taste. The company.. it was great! Thanks for organizing this Karlee. =)

      You guys could come down to Queen West neighborhood and help us shovel all these snow.

    Hey Karlee, the map above seems to point to a location near University and Dundas, which appears to be incorrect. Here's the googlemaps location of Momofuku. Did you want me to update the above link for you? https://maps.google.com/maps?q=Momofuku+Noodle+Bar,+University+Avenue,+Toronto,+ON,+Canada&hl=en&ll=43.649491,-79.386284&spn=0.004052,0.006856&sll=37.0625,-95.677068&sspn=36.315864,56.162109&oq=momfuku&hq=Momofuku+Noodle+Bar,&hnear=University+Ave,+Toronto,+Ontario,+Canada&t=m&z=17
