Momofuku Má Pêche Ratings and Reviews
The menu was creative and fun, the pork buns were delicious as well as the hash, the brisket rice bowl was delicious as were the chicken and waffles. The drinks were good, but service was simply ok, a little inattentive, our drinks were sitting at the bar, our waiter seemed pre-occupied, the restaurant was half full. Overall food was the star of the show.
We had amazing food with the exception of the Porgy which should have been taken off our bill as it was quite overcooked. However they sent out several comp dishes so I did not push the issue. The service was quite good except that we had to ask for cocktails, had a long wait for ice and the guy who reached straight across my plate to fill my water as I was lifting my fork to my mouth.
Still I would go back anytime I was asked.
Disappointing after the hype around this subterranean hipster eatery. My chicken was quite dark on the outside and undercooked, i.e., pink in the center, red on the bone. I didn't send it back, but did tell the manager when she she came by asking about our meal. She immediately noticed the undercooked chicken and took it away. The chef, however, defended his delivery by saying that "That's the color of this chicken" and "The chucked was 'temped' before served." When I explained that that was the wrong answer to a customer issue, the manager was extremely apologetic and wanted to make amends. There service, I should add, was very good over all. But the chef needs to learn a bit of humility and adjust the temp of his fryer.
There are some excellent menu items, but unfortunately I did not have the experience of having any of them. I tried the burger and for the quantity of salt and grease I couldn't even eat half. The fries were comparable to Wendy's. The ambiance and service was great, but I definitely wouldn't go back.
The bartender was brilliant. Great cocktails and just enough conversation. And selling. Lovely person. My hamburger with kimchi was otherworldly. I ate all of it which I never do. Penicillin (s) were perfection. Tried my neighbors pudding with ice cream and rum. Wow! All amazing. Please come to Los Angeles.
As a Momofuku brand, you expect absolutely the best... it was just...ok. And for the price, it was...rather meh. The steak was, although order rare, served at room temperature. And the scallops we a bit on the, not so fresh side...a little chewy.
To be fair, there was some sort of event going on upstair, so perhaps there was distraction from the kitchen.
The waiter, Brain, salvaged the meal with outstanding service.
I don't think I will repeat at this location.
Surprised at how bland and unoriginal the food was and lack of decor/ambiance made the experience that much more forgettable. Friends had warned me that this place was way overrated, I made the mistake of taking out of town friends there for an expensive and disappointing meal.
We anticipated that breakfast might not be on the same level with lunch or dinner at a Momofuko restaurant, but the food and service were of remarkably low quality. Smoked salmon was old and/or previously frozen-- less than mediocre. We felt that the breakfast offering was simply an afterthought, playing on the Momofuko name, but delivering very little for a lot.
I went on a Sunday, which might not be a fair representation but it is definitely a place to go at night, not during the day. Overall it seems a bit tired/ run down. I think the best thing there is the desserts and unfortunately we were continuing on somewhere else for dessert... so I don't think we went the right time (brunch) or were able to enjoy what they're best at Cake/ Ice Cream etc...
Service was flawless...the entire staff hit just the right level of being there for us without being overbearing. Food was incredible. The Fluke was delicious but the Habanero Chicken was the stand out for sure. They have Pork Buns by request...and they were delicious! Overall a wonderful experience end to end. Next time we'll get dessert upstairs at their Ice Cream Shop...
I am a fan of David Chang so I really wanted to enjoy my experience at Ma Peche. I had to cancel a dinner res so decided to do breakfast. We ordered the matcha pancakes, granola with yogurt, chorizo in tomato sauce with poached egg on top (can't recall the exact name) and a side of bacon. The pancakes were ok. The texture was good and it wasn't dry but the flavor wasn't anything remarkable. The chorizo dish was very strong in tomato flavor but very salty. We didn't finish it.
A collection of dishes with no apparent theme and connecting concept. Food tasted good, but the whole experience left me empty. It lacked love and passion. I get the feeling that this a franchise play to just have more tables in a busy market. Can't help but feel a little jaded about a celebrity chief cashing in. Service was good, but it is like they didn't feel it either. I guess I got what I paid for, I can say I went to a momofuku....
In my defence, I went to Katz deli too, but it was unforgettable! Momofuku is no Katz. - it won't be here in twenty years.
