David Chang’s Chant

Huffington Post has a write-up of The Moth’s storytelling event featuring East Villagers David Chang and Padma Lakshmi. Padma recently told Daily Intel that the Tompkins Square Park rats are her least favorite part of living in New York, and now HuffPo has a fun fact about the Momofuku impresario: “When he knows that someone important in the food world is dining at his restaurants, Chang and his chefs chant ‘kill, kill, kill’ before serving food.” Outgoing New York Times critic Sam Sifton is apparently an exception: “Congratulations on new job,” Mr. Chang tweeted yesterday. “Now I’m panicking, we just got used to having you around.”
