Have a sweet tooth? Well Momofuku Milk Bar will be right up your alley. The Milk Bar is one of David Chang’s five establishments scattered across the New York. I was lucky enough to also visit the Noodle Bar (see review here).
This little hole in the wall is literally tucked in and camouflaged so well into the other East Village buildings that if you weren’t looking for it you could easily walk past it. On our first time visiting, Tina and I chose to share a slice of their famous Crack Pie and a jug of their Cereal Milk.
The name Crack Pie is probably an ode to how it’s addicting like crack. It’s not your ordinary pie. At first glance you’ll feel that it’s under cooked because it’s uber oooey-gooey. But let me tell you it is goooood. So much so, that people are willing to pay the outrageous $44 price tag for a whole pie. The contents of this highly addicting pie are so simple it sounds to good to be true—butter, cream, brown sugar, sugar, and corn flour. I’ve found a couple recipes online that I think I will have to try and make this myself one day.
Cereal lovers, this one’s for you. The Cereal Milk is quite literally what the name says it is. Imagine you’re eating a bowl of cereal and you get to the part where there are none left. Depending on your preference for cereal to milk ratio, you’re left with a approximately three gulps of delicious milk that the cereal has been swimming in. Now instead of three gulps, you get a whole jug! You can buy the jug ready to drink or if you would rather make it yourself later you can by a jug filled with all the ingredients you need. All you have to do is add in the milk!
On our last full day in NYC, Tina and I decided to return to the Milk Bar post our adventure to the Noodle Bar so we could indulge ourselves one last time and buy some goodies to bring home. The picture above is pretty self explanatory now that you know the story behind Cereal Milk. It’s Cereal Milk soft serve dipped in Frosted Flakes. I unfortunately don’t have any pictures of the cookies I purchased that day for souvenirs (my family devoured that before I could get the chance) but I’ll list my favourites for you below.
Compost Cookie Pretzels, Potato chips, coffee, oats, butterscotch, and chocolate chips
Cornflake Cookie Cornflakes, marshmallows, and chocolate chips
I might also attempt to make these myself one day as there are recipes online. Or they do ship internationally …Hmm tempting.
