What's new at Momofuku Ssam?

Haven't been since early January, and wondering if anyone's experienced any good new items on the menu...

    1. I read they offer a weekend brunch now. Is that true, or were they refering to the prix fixe?

      1. Yea, I've seen the new menu. Just wanted to see if anyone's tried any of the new menu items.

        1. I've had the fried egg with pork scrapple, bacon, a little mizuna, and violet mustard. It was good, but I envied my neighbor's big fluffy biscuit. The bacon was sweet and crispy and delicious, the violet mustard fragrant, but I was still jonesing for some hot coffee and bread (without having to pay 8 bucks). I've also had the bbq rib sandwich, which replaced the banh mi. Naturally the pork was great, the slaw in the sandwich made it all kind of gloppy (but not in a bad way) but it seemed a little meager at $12. Overall I prefer the banh mi, and I wish they had kept both sandwiches on the menu.

            Yea, I saw they took the banh mi off the menu and was very upset.

              Me too... We can always request it be put back on the menu, but at Momofuku I don't know how much impact that will have. But there is a rumor that Baoguette is moving into the space on saint marks that was Bamn! the automat, which wouid make up for it.
