really liked it
Read in April, 2012

Aw shucks, I'm David Chang and I'm just a humble guy who likes noodles, ya'll. It was so embarrassing getting nominated for all the best awards in the industry before I felt I merited them, really it was! Let me list my awards! What's that? You've heard I'm a dick? Yeah, that's true. Anger in the kitchen! It is like a fire that fuels me to greatness! All those swears and tantrums help me think of more things to gelee and shave! You think foie gras is inhumane? You are a pussy!

I mean, clearly he is a genius and Momofuku Noodle Bar is responsible for maybe the best meal of my life, but something about the tone rubbed me the wrong way. Dudes: it's cool if they suck sometimes as long as they are geniuses! Whatever, next week I am making those pork buns and they will be DELIGHTFUL.

Nikki I know exactly what you mean and that kind of makes me sick. No freaking woman could ever get away with behaving like this. Men are so indulged.
