Momofuku Noodle Bar, New York

In addition to being pork-belly obsessed, David Chang is a culinary genius as demonstrated by the consistently out-of-this-world pork buns (my favorite fast food/sandwich ever) or ramens (much better than in most Japanese ramen restaurant) or anything else served at Momofuku's Noodle Bar. And despite all the success, the accolades and awards, he's managed to stay a great guy (see the fantastic profile published in the New Yorker last year). So if you haven't done it yet (and even if you have by the way), try his food. The newly renovated and expanded dining room has considerably reduced waiting time (no reservations taken), so you have no excuse. One of the places I will miss the most when I leave New York.
