While I applaud the well needed diversity in our ethnic food scene... !#@% $14 bucks for pork butt, rice and an egg is a little offensive. And let's keep in mind we are not in a part of town where the rent should be dictating the prices. I don't care how good you can make those ingredients taste, they are still those ingredients. As someone who has cooked professionally all my life I know the product to cost ratio and frankly the quantity you get is not up to snuff either. Bummer because I was really looking forward to this place.
This article reads as..... "Mwa haha hahaha (insert: evil mustache twisting and maniacal look through monocle whilst lighting a cigar with a burning hundred dollar bill)... what should we do tonight mumzy?"... "Oh let us go out on ye town and patron the little people with our exorbitant expense account"..."Ah, quite right mumzy, then shall we scribe a detailed yet totally boring account of our gourmandization so that the minions can learn and and live through us and our brilliant opinions while they huddle in squalor"..."Perfection! call the stables and ready the steeds"

What's all this NoMo business anyway? OH... are you are referring to the area AHWYCSHFATUTO ( After Huger Where You Can Score Herion From a Transvestite Under The Overpass) ? Geez I didn't realize the name had been so dramatically altered to NoMo, a little hipster pretentious but as long as there is more beer slated to be drunk up there I guess I can handle the switch.
Perhaps taking responsibility for ill conceived cuisine and marketing choices should be the priority and not playing the blame game and disparaging a chef as talented as Jeremiah. The day a restaurant with "hot rocks" shows up on the James Beard lists then I suppose you could imagine this gimicky concept in the same league as the Maccintosh, where real cooking exists, but until then why not just strive to do a better job and not pass the buck.
