An overdue reunion with the bestie calls for dessert and…more dessert. We hit up Momofuku Milk Bar on Upper West side as soon as I dropped my luggage off at the apartment.

This place is more of a serve and go type eatery so the space is quite tight, but luckily we were able to snag the seats in front of the window. I was all about their pink neon milk sign and chalk written menu that offer drinks, cakes, cookies, ice cream and yes, even real food (like their veggie buns).

Of course it was mandatory that we order their Milk Cereal Soft Serve.

 

Really unlike any ice cream I’ve ever tasted – thick, creamy and a bit salty. Honestly, still in the process of deciding whether I like this approach to soft serve or not, perhaps it’s an acquired taste. Would recommend to those who are looking for a rather savory dessert. 

We also took a shot at their famous Crack Pie.

While I would say the pie’s hint of butter and brown sugar was deliciously strong, the dessert overall was a bit dense and overwhelming. But even so, I think it’s worth trying just because I was quite a fan of the flavor and texture. Definitely share this slice with a friend because I predict that neither one of you will be able to finish this in one go.

Unfortunately, we couldn’t eat too much due to the fact that we had dinner reservations in 2 hours, but I’ll definitely be back next time to try their infamous birthday truffles!
