David Chang is a Korean chef who has made a mark for himself in the culinary industry. He has established a number of restaurants in NYC and has decided to take on the West Coast.
Majordomo is an Asian-inspired restaurant set in Chinatown that encompasses Korean food, without being Korean (if that makes any sense). There are dishes that are unique that you've probably never tasted before. There are some that are traditional with a twist. Nearly all the dishes are served family style, the way Asians do it.
The interior is industrial, yet chic. There is a cool looking bar where you can drink as you wait for your table. There is a main room where all the tables are situated and a hidden back room for additional seating.
|RAW SUGAR SNAPS ($10.00): Horseradish, Lemon, Shallot. The vegetables were good but nothing really special. They were crisp and felt light amongst the other dishes we ordered. If you want a slightly healthier option, this is your best bet.|
|SLICED KANPACHI ($16.00): Citrus, Bonji. I thought this was a good quality sashimi grade dish. It was also light and melted in your mouth. The citrus added acidity to the fish to bring out its subtle sweet flavor.|
|MY FAVORITE DISH. BING BREAD WITH SPREAD: EGGS AND SMOKED ROE ($18.00); CAVE AGED BUTTER AND WHITE STURGEON CAVIAR ($32.00). I loved, loved, loved these spreads. The bread was awesome...moist and chewy with a slightly crisp exterior.|
|CHERRY TOMATOES ($14.00: Tofu, Shisho, Yuzu. This dish was just ok for me. It was nothing special. The dish was fresh and light but I didn't care for it.|
|FRIED SMELT ($14.00): Shrimp salt, Almond, Lemon. This was fried fish at its best. Imagine eating and English fish and chips, revamped, without the chips. It was flaky and it didn't feel heavy nor greasy.|
|HORCHATA KAKIGORI ($15.00): Coffee, Rice, Dulce de Leche. This was light and delicious. It was a good way to end the meal since it wasn't too heavy. You could definitely taste the horchata flavor.|
Notable Dishes: Bing bread, Fried Potatoes and Boneless Chuck Short Rib
