At Momosan, the noodles are center and front. Whether indulging in a signature tonkotsu ramen bowl, tokyo chicken ramen, tantan, or tsukemen bowl, you’ll realize it’s quality that you can only dine with an Iron Chef.
You, too, have come to the right place for those who want more than just ramen. Start your meal with an exclusive appetizer, ranging from edamame and pork gyoza, to more playful dishes such as crispy mimiga (pig ear) and peking duck tacos. Pair your appetizers and noodles with one of 20 sake options, six of which are Morimoto signature sake, served with a glass, carafe, and bottle. Choose from 3 draught and 3 bottled beers, including a classic Japanese style lager, three Morimoto signature beers in collaboration with Rogue Ales, and a rotating New York local. Wine more of your style? Momosan also offers two white and two red wines, both with a glass and a bottle.
Stop by yourself and sit at the bar or with a group and relax at one of the communal tables. Drop in for lunch or dinner on appetizers and noodles. Wash all of this with Morimoto signature sake, beer, or wine. No matter what path you choose, with your meal in the hands of Momo San, it’s bound to be unforgettable.
The Iron Chef Behind Momosan Ramen & Sake
Chef Morimoto. Iron chef Masaharu Morimoto. Morimoto san. Momo san.
Momo san, a moniker for Chef Morimoto (Morimoto san shortened to Momo san) is not only a brand new concept, it also means Morimoto ‘s formal and formidable entrance into the ramen world.
While Momosan Ramen & Sake is his first ramen shop, Momo San himself is no stranger to the kitchen. Having grown up and improved his skills in Japan, where ramen is a staple dish, Morimoto developed early love for noodles. Bowls of ramen have been on Morimoto’s menus all over the country since 2001, well before the so-called “ramen boom” began in New York City.
At Momosan, Chef Morimoto brings his favorite food and drink from his home in Hiroshima , Japan, to his home in New York City. The noodles are at the front and center of the ramen-focused menu, and paired with playful touches of authentic Japanese comfort food and delicious sake.
Momosan Ramen & Sake offers a chance for a casual, slurp-filled Morimoto experience, without losing the quality guests of Iron Chef all over the globe.
