Chef David Chang’s Momofuku Brand is a Big Deal in Toronto

The most anticipated day on Toronto’s 2012 culinary calendar finally arrived last fall as New York super-chef David Chang opened the doors to not one, not two, not three, but four establishments bearing his renowned Momofuku branding. Accessible when it comes to atmosphere and price point—though less so if you dislike long lines—Momofuku Noodle Bar is a street-level communal eatery for Chang’s legendary Asian buns and ramen. Above it, Nikai is great for after-work drinks and bar snacks, while at Daisho you’re encouraged to advance-order a family-style meal supplemented by a long list of accompaniments. Or reserve a seat at Shoto’s exclusive culinary theatre to indulge in an innovative tasting menu.  Craig Moy
