Two weeks ago, I had the opportunity to meet my friend, Jennifer, in New York for a crazy 24 hour visit. Before I left, I was able to stop and check out the Momofuku Milk Bar. I've been dying to try one of David Chang's restaurants for quite some time and I have heard amazing things about their desserts so I figured stopping at Milk Bar was the best I could do with limited time.
Most of the desserts at Milk Bar need to stay refrigerated which isn't ideal for a long trip back to DC. However, they had a great selection of cookies that were perfect for me to take home to Van. I picked up one of each type - compost, chocolate, cornflakes and marshmallow, corn, and blueberry. Unfortunately, I didn't do a good job of taking pictures, but the cookies (especially the corn cookie) earned rave reviews from Van and the Boys. Based on the reviews from the Boys, I would say they were good enough to consider buying the Milk Bar cookbook to be able to recreate them at home.
In addition to the cookies, I decided to pick up some of the birthday cake truffles for myself to enjoy before I left New York. The truffles were incredibly rich and had a really unique taste and texture. They tasted like a combination of milk, cake and cereal with sprinkles. The texture was also really interesting with a dry, crumbly outside and a dough like inside. I am glad that I tried them, but next time I think I would try something else or stick with the cookies.
