Hot in Toronto: Momofuku

Situated on University & Adelaide and adjacent to the Shangri-La Hotel, Momofuku is a 3-storey Japanese restaurant complex which contains 4 different style of eating experience -  Noodle Bar (pork & ramen), Nikai (lounge & bar), Daisho ("large format" meals) & Shoto (22 seats reserved only for seasonal menus). Momofuku was a concept that started in NYC by David Chang, and now has multiple locations in NYC, Sydney and Toronto. 

Designed by James K.M. Cheng the building is a glass contained cube adjacent to the Shangri-La Hotel. Eye-catching to the public both night and day. Its interior was designed by The Design Agency; a simplistic but modern space with open concept. Heavily use of white oak walls and benches unified its look with a taste of oriental style. 

We were only able to experience its Noodle Bar, as the rest of the complex (Nikai, Daisho & Shoto) are closed on Sunday.
