The Momofuku complex is housed in a glass box structure adjacent to the new Shangri-La, which, as we've previously discussed, has plenty to get us excited about (silk-covered walls, a sculpted Japanese garden, and two "tea libraries").
But back to the Chang gang: in addition to Momofuku Noodle Bar, the space will also contain three other Chang restaurants: Nikai, Daishō, and Shōtō. As with Momofuku's New York location, the Noodle Bar will not take reservations, but then again, this is Momofuku, so they can do whatever they want. Chang has attracted fans around the world, and he's fairly confident he can add something substantial to the Toronto culinary scene. As he said in a recent interview with The Star:
"I don't know Toronto that well, but I can say this: if you had to name ten cities that are culinary centers of the world, would you put Toronto on that list?"
