Mecha Noodle, Fairfield
Best new restaurant in Connecticut? Mecha Noodle in Fairfield is not high-end, but their amazing dishes, reminiscent of Momofuku in NYC, are consistent and delicious.
We have been there twice - this time we had a selection of appetizers. Last time we tried their ramen - which was awesome.
Their pork buns are nearly as good as Momofuku - only the quality of the bun is a little better at the latter (I think its the bacon fat they put in there).
Ssam, mushroom dumplings, duck bao, charred octopus...all good.
I will be back soon - probably for the pho or the banh mi sandwich. But pretty much everything on the menu sounds delicious, and so far nothing has not lived up to the hype.
