Momofuku Ginger Scallion Noodles

By Rachel Nuwer - March 22, 2019

In Japan, China, and many other Asian countries, tradition calls for eating long noodles, which signify longevity, on New Year's Day. This ginger scallion sauce from NYC restaurant Momofuku is the perfect bright and spicy condiment for a bowl of lucky noodles.

This ginger scallion noodle recipe is an homage to of one of the greatest dishes in New York City: the $4.95 plate of ginger scallion noodles at Great New York Noodletown in Chinatown.

Ginger scallion sauce is a mother sauce at Momofuku, something that Chef Chang uses over and over again, and you can do the same. Stir a few tablespoons into a bowl of hot noodles, on a bowl of rice topped with a fried egg, or use as a condiment with grilled meat or seafood.
