MOMOFUKU SEIOBO lucky peaches

Momofuku sounds like a naughty play on words but in Japanese it means "lucky peach".  It also happens to be the first name of the gent who invented instant ramen.  If you have ever been able to secure a booking at Momofuku then well aren't you a lucky peach.  Their "I don't care who you are" philosophy means that they only take bookings ten days in advance.   We snagged a booking for four for lunch on 9 November 2012.
