David Chang Probably Hates You


Oh, David Chang. So many people love you, but you just can’t seem to love them back, now can you? Details has a short profile of the king of the Momofuku empire, which basically outlines the most annoying people who venture into his restaurant and their actions. Are you one of them?

5. Saying they’re right when they’re wrong. Like when they ask for a steak to be medium-rare and it’s medium-rare and they say it’s not medium-rare.

4. Special food requests.*

3. Fake allergies.

2. Being fucking drunk. It’s just so annoying.

1. Bloggers who don’t know shit. The top one is to say you’re a blogger, right off the bat. That always gets a good laugh from the chefs.

Hear that — just shut up and don’t talk and eat what’s given to you and drink seltzer water. Then maybe David Chang will like you. Or still probably not.
