Proteins and carbs found in the Momofuku Noodle Bar recipes.

roasted pork belly

This is the last of the obsessive-compulsive lists for the Noodle Bar recipes. It makes me kind of sad, but the category of this list makes me happy: meat and potatoes! Let’s see what Chang cooks with. Check out the master Noodle Bar list of recipes if you’re still curious.

Proteins

baby octopus (31)
chicken (2, 3, 19, 21)
chicken wings (20)
crawfish (30)
eggs (1, 9)
fish cake (1)
littleneck or butter clams (28)

Carbohydrates

Bacon is clearly the darling of Chang’s kitchen, mine too!

List of produce used in Momofuku Noodle Bar recipes

Yet another obsessive compulsive list! This list can be used in conjunction with the Master Noodle Bar list, or you can just gawk at it and see what kind of strange produce David Chang likes using and in how many recipes.

Obviously Chang likes scallions a lot.

Planning for kimchi stew

After the Ramen Spectacular I had a lot of broth and pork shoulder leftover. It was obvious: time for kimchi stew! Of course to make kimchi stew you need to make kimchi. No worries. I can do that. First things first, shopping for ingredients.

Shopping List:
-green onions
-carrots
-onions
-daikon
-napa cabbage
-garlic
-ginger
-sliced rice cakes
-kochukaru, a Korean chili powder
-jarred salted shrimp

As diverse as T&T’s Asian aisles are, I don’t think I’ll find the kochukaru or jarred salted shrimp there. Next plan of attack: Korean Supermarket H-Mart!
