Momofuku Má Pêche Ratings and Reviews
I booked my brunch reservation with trepidation - the reviews really seemed all over the place. I finally decided that my need for matcha pancakes outweighed potentially eating firey hot (or tasteless bland, depending on the review) fried chicken in a subterranean bunker. We started with the pork buns, which were good, and then shared the aforementioned matcha pancakes and chicken and waffles. Two large matcha pancakes came and they were good - but the accompanying lavender syrup really stole the show. The chicken and waffles were fine; I'm sensitive to spice and found the chicken to be hotter than I usually like and my partner said that the heat snuck up on him (as other reviewers have mentioned). Overall, it was a nice brunch - not GREAT, but solidly good. Give the matcha pancakes a try if you go!
I had waited a long time to go to ma peche, and it didn't disappoint. David Chang's food is some of the most complicated and wonderful I have ever had. We got the steak tataki, which had a perfect texture and different flavor combinations with every bite. We also got the amazing broccoli salad, an asian riff on potato salad using miso, and the habanero fried chicken, which was spicy and wonderful. We topped it off with some cereal milk soft serve from Milk Bar upstairs, which is one of my favorites. I cant wait to go back and try everything else on the menu.
I was skeptical at first when I saw their limited menu. However, the chicken and waffles was delicious! I love that their Mimosa is made of real orange juice with pulp and not the kind from the box. You can't go wrong with the food and the presentation here.The ambiance was so-so, not much design but the room was airy, bright and good for conversation.
Awesome food, awesome space -- great for a special occasion or just a get together with friends-- only thing to note was we thought it was kind of weird that they wanted to clean the table before we even got our bill when the restaurant was empty....but other than that it was great!
We visited this restaurant after a spectacular experience at another of Mr. Chang's restaurants, but this restaurant was disappointing. No one was at podium when we arrived, wait staff was extremely uncoordinated. Our meals didn't even come out together. My husband watched me eat my meal and after I was done, I watched him eat his. Pork bao tasted reheated. It wasn't even hot. The texture was off. Not returning.
My wife ordered a fish dish without bacon and asked that the fish be prepared without being mixed with bacon products. The fish came out with bacon and we sent it back. When the server brought it out a second time it was clear that the second fish was also cooked in bacon and tasted like bacon (or maybe it was just the same fish with the pieces of bacon removed). Needless to say, we thought this was shady and we're very surprised to have been charged for the meal after the two complaints. We won't be going back.
Overall the experience was good. It is a very mid-town experience that is quite different from the vibe of other Momofuku's which are crowded, lively, loud, and casual. This is much more subdued, and it seemed the decor was mainly trying to defuse the inescapable corporate vibe of the building. Food overall was very good — the soft-shell crab buns and scallop appetizers were quite spectacular.
We had a reservation for 8:00 but weren't seated until almost 9:00. The host came to us twice and was really apologetic. Still, it was annoying. At the very least, I think a round of drinks was in order. It was late and we were all pretty hungry. The host simply apologized and said, They decided to have dessert. They decided to order more wine. Okay, but come on. At least soften the hour-long wait. We had a reservation, after all. Also, the hall leading to the restroom was unkempt and the bathroom itself was shabby. Not a big deal usually, but this place was somewhat pricey and supposed to be all about the experience.
Several years ago we hard the most amazing breakfast at Ma Peche. We were surprised to learn that breakfast ended at 10:00 which seemed odd for a weekend. I am a huge fan of Momofuko and this was the first time I was disappointed. The wait staff was subpar, the never asked if we wanted tea, coffee or juice. Determined to have a great meal we ordered from the brunch menu afterward my daughter went to the Milk bar, my son and I went to Starbucks to finish our breakfast. I recent referred friend to MaPeche and now I understand why they are disappointed. David Chen it i time to spend some time at this restaurant.
Love this restaurant. This was my third experience here, and it never dissappoints. Food here is a delight, as you would expect from Chef Chang. The music is present, but not overwhelming, and the staff is attentive, knowledgeable and friendly. The food is really the standout. Every dish is creative, unique, and delectable. The kind of food the makes your cheeks hurt from smiling with discovery. What a lovely evening.
Excellent food, maybe the best I've had at any restaurant of the Momofuku group so far (though I haven't been at Ko yet). I took two of the small plates, a side and some cheese, and no large plates, and it was quite enough. They have a lot of seafood dishes but I wanted meat so I went for beef tataki (thin raw beef slices) and the cured beef buns. The first was subtle and complex, whereas the second was more strong and striking, yet both delicious. The Asian pear and jicama salad was a bit too spicy for me, and the dressing could have been a bit more intense. The Winnimere cheese comes, as all of them, with warm cranberry walnut bread, honey and compote, all of which I recommend, which make it more part of an ensemble rather than a dish all by itself.
The food was excellent, fresh and there were sufficient portions provided. We had the branzino for two and it was perfect. There was a nice wine selection and the staff was extremely friendly and attentive. I have already recommended it to friends. Very casual ambiance but comfortable and not too loud.
Trout dip was paired with well flavored pork rinds. It was a delicious combination of crunch and soft. Roasted rice cakes are basically an Asian gnocchi glazed with sauce that has a mildly spicy zing to it. Plenty of mushrooms and kale. The portion is also sizeable--potentially two meals in one.
Everything was good but not exceptional as it usually is. The service was lacking. But most unfortunately, there was improper pacing of the dishes. This is a tasting style restaurant and everything at our table came out at once. We ordered the famed fried chicken which got cold due to it being served before our starters were even finished.
