Boston’s newest food hall — Hub Hall at the Hub on Causeway development by TD Garden — opened last month, minus a couple of its 18 food and drink vendors, but today marks the opening of one more vendor there: Momosan. From Iron Chef’s Masaharu Morimoto, it’s a sit-down ramen-and-more restaurant amid all the fast-casual kiosks of the food hall.
The ramen selection spans multiple styles. There’s tonkotsu, for example, featuring a pork broth and chashu pork, but there’s also a bowl with a creamy chicken broth base, a vegan spicy miso, a spicy tan-tan with a sesame broth and miso ground pork, and more.
Kushiyaki and other bar snacks join ramen on the extensive menu, as well as some larger entrees and rice bowls; look for dishes like pan-fried pork gyoza, soft shell bao, and hamachi tacos, not to mention a roasted half Peking duck and several preparations of A5 wagyu for those who like a fancier pregame meal before whatever event they’ll be attending at the Garden. There’s booze, too, including sake, beer, and more.
Later in the year, Momosan will add a takeout sushi counter, lunch service, and reservations, but for now, it’s operating from 4 to 10 p.m. Thursday through Monday and taking walk-ins only.
Momosan joins a big lineup of food options at Hub Hall: New Haven-style and Roman-style pizza from the Mida team; new locations of a few small local chains, such as Cusser’s Roast Beef & Seafood and Greco; Boston icons like Mike’s Pastry and Sullivan’s Castle Island; and more. Beyond Hub Hall but also within the Hub on Causeway development, there are a couple additional options — Banners Kitchen & Tap and Guy Fieri’s Tequila Cocina.
