Momofu What?

Hello Luv-lies,

So I keep coming across  this word – Momofuku.  Off Hand, there’s not much that I know about this word.  As a matter of fact, whenever I come across it, I  know that it has something to do with food because it’s almost always on one of the upscale, swanky foodie sites where I hang out.  So I did some digging around to find out what this poetically naughty word could possibly mean.   I found that the word, in Japanese means, ‘Lucky Peach’.

But according to the Chef-founder of this whole Momofuku thing, the word  is “an indirect nod” to Momofuku Ando, the Taiwanese-Japanese inventor of instant ramen.

Lucky Peach.  Ramen Noodle.  One thing that I’ve learned for sure about  Momofuku, is that it has become the most influential restaurant brand here in the States!

My BFFs over at Bon Appetit  did a nice job of chronicling the inception and growth of what is said to be one of America’s most important restaurants

Here’s a look-see

Another fact about this interesting word – Momofuku.  The Chef-Founder,  also suggested it’s not an accident he chose a word that sounds like the English curse word motherf*****.  (Hey! We’re all grown here! )
