HANGOVER OBSERVATIONSDavid Chang and The Wire creator David Simon chatted with KQED radio host Michael Krasny in San Francisco yesterday. Chang on the opening of Momofuku Noodle Bar: "If I knew more, I would never have done the restaurant, never would have called the restaurant Momofuku. It's terrible, a terrible jumble of words. It was like, what have you got to lose? And slowly it was, how do we apply the highest techniques, getting the best produce possible, for a lower cost? I got tired of going to dinner and feeling like I got ripped off." Head over to Eater National for more highlights. [~EN~]
