Momofuku Milk Bar is renowned for their unique desserts, namely cereal milk soft serve, compost cookies and crack pies. Momofuku Milk Bar opened its first humble store in East Village seven years ago and had since amassed a legion following of loyal fans. Today, Momofuku Milk Bar has six stores across New York City and one store in Toronto, Canada.
Expect to see the unexpected at Momofuku Milk Bar. From corn cookies to birthday cake truffles, the interesting menu never fails to excite its customers. The impressive mouthwatering creations are the brainchild of celebrity pastry chef Christina Tosi. You may find her familiar – she is now a judge on Master Chef starring alongside Gordon Ramsay and Graham Elliot.
Best-selling confections include Crack Pie (USD 5.50 per slice, USD 44 for entire pie) and Cereal Milk Soft Serve (USD 5 for 4 oz. cup, USD 10 for a pint). The former is a gooey butter cake with toasted oat crust, while the latter is a soft serve ice cream made with milk, brown sugar, cereal and a sprinkle of salt.
The winning formula of their addictive treats is simple yet genius – salt. Tosi’s personal preference of integrating contrasting flavours for a balance has unintentionally transformed New Yorkers’ notions of confectionary forever. Even those without a sweet tooth found themselves irresistibly hooked!
From Martha Stewart Weddings magazine to even The Tonight Show, Momofuku Milk Bar has made an appearance on almost every press possible. Over the years, word of Momofuku Milk Bar has crossed continents and became a must-eat destination for foodies worldwide. We were not disappointed – Tosi’s marvelous desserts were indeed worthy of its hype!
