I Tried Momofuku’s Limited-Edition Dinner for Two Bundle, and It’s the Most Delicious Way to Spend Valentine’s Day at Home (Bonus: It’s on Sale!)
It’s February, people, and that means Valentine’s Day is only a few short weeks away! The romantic holiday can be stressful for a lot of people, but it doesn’t have to be. If you’re just now looking for reservations at your favorite restaurant, and your heart is sinking since it’s fully booked, don’t panic: There are still plenty of ways to make Valentine’s Day extra special. Our recommendation? Having a cozy evening at home with your special someone and whipping up a delicious dinner for two. (And maybe cracking open a bottle of wine, of course.)
Now, menu planning for the big night can be tricky, which is why I think you should snag Momofuku’s Dinner for Two bundle — especially while it’s still on sale. You can’t beat a warming bowl of ramen on a cold winter night, and the versatility of the noodles will let you and your Valentine customize your bowls with whichever add-ons you’d like and share a fun cooking experience. I recently got to try the bundle early, and can vouch that it’ll be a surefire hit on the 14th.
What Is the Momofuku Dinner for Two Bundle?
From the team behind Momofuku Noodle Bar and many more incredible restaurants, Momofuku’s website is full of high-quality pantry staples that we here at The Kitchn can’t get enough of. This bundle contains five packs of Soy & Scallion Noodles and Sweet & Spicy Noodles for 10 total servings of noodles. It also comes with Restaurant-Grade Soy Sauce, Chili Crunch, Chili Crunch Hot Honey, and two pairs of Momofuku Chopsticks — basically, everything you need to bring the noodle bar into your home for Valentine’s Day. Oh, and they have dessert covered with three bars from Raaka Chocolate — a New York-based chocolate maker known for transparently traded, single-origin unroasted dark chocolate — that are infused with the classic Momofuku flavors.
Why I Love the Momofuku Dinner for Two Bundle
I’ve already been a big fan of Momofuku’s high-quality products, so I was sure this bundle was going to be a hit — and I was right. It comes with everything you need to set up a delicious Valentine’s Day dinner, and while the noodles are great on their own, they can also serve as a blank canvas for whichever add-ons you’d like. You can go as simple as sesame seeds and furikake or as involved as a soy-brined 6-minute egg, sliced pork or chicken, bamboo, scallions, fried onions, and peppers — this list is endless. We filled our bowls with scallions, chicken, peppers, mushrooms, and some more delicious, pretty simple toppings. (And, of course, the Momofuku Chili Crunch.) The chocolate was a huge hit with my GF, too, her favorite being the Miso Potato Chip flavor.
As a final touch, they throw in a couple of sets of chopsticks, which really add some elegance to your meal — and are a lot more fancy than the takeout chopsticks you collect in your junk drawer. Plus, your pantry is now stocked with tons of delicious food, which is really the best Valentine’s Day gift of all! (And, if you order this bundle by Feb. 5, you’ll receive it by Valentine’s Day.) So, if you’re unsure of what you want to do for V-Day this year — or if you’re just looking to stock your shelves with delicious pantry staples — pick up the Momofuku Dinner for Two Bundle ASAP, while it’s still on sale.
