Momofuku Milk Bar: A quick bite

With all the buzz I've been hearing about Momofuku Milk Bar, Chef David Chang's newest concept, I was eager to make my very own New Year's resolution-breaking pilgrimage. Located behind Momofuku Ssam Bar, Milk resembles a spitting image of its sibling, just on a smaller scale.

While Milk Bar offers a decent amount of savory items (Chorizo Challah and their famous pork buns, for example), my quest was to sample some of their unique desserts. For instance, if you love slurping the milk after eating Lucky Charms cereal, you're in good hands. Milk Bar offers "Cereal Milk." It's nice to know that there is enough demand for this sweet (ingenious and "Why didn't I think of that?") beverage. Indeed, there's a kid in all of us.

I grabbed a slice of Candy Bar Pie (an ode to the "Take 5" candy bar) and a Cornflake-Marshmallow-Chocolate Chip Cookie, to go. Both cookie and pie looked irresistible, handmade and of ample size. Mid-way through savoring each dessert, my eyes began to twitch and tears began to form; these morsels of decadence were much too sweet for me (a self-proclaimed sugar addict who finds the icing at Magnolia and Buttercup not sweet enough)!

Next time I'm in the mood for a Milk Bar fix, I'll attempt to control my addiction by grabbing only one, not two desserts. Until then, I don't want to see another cookie, cake or pie. Perhaps this is a good thing?

*Should you decide to eat a slice of the signature "Crack Pie" in house, note that there's standing room only.*
