My sister treated me to a night of Momofuku goodness at the Noodle Bar and Milk Bar for my birthday. I haven’t had a lot of free time to post so things are piling up but here are some pictures. We had really good seats at the open kitchen bar so we watched the chefs and sous chefs make everything in front of use.
The one page menu. Options are very limited here but that’s okay because everything’s interesting. More options/specials on the walls and they have a four course prix fixe for $30.
The famous pork buns meet the hype. It’s a must try, really delicious.
We both got the Momofuku noodle bowl. Fresh noodles with pork, semi poached egg, scallion, nori, naruto, and bamboo? It was okay, a little better with siracha sauce but don’t add too much because it gets super spicy! I’ve had better ramen at other places.
Then we headed over to the Milk bar only a few blocks away (next to Ssam).
The fridge case with the cakes and pies.
Crack pie = sugary buttery gooey goodness in a crust. So good.
This is why it’s the milk bar, they serve cereal flavored milk. It’s pricey though so we didn’t try it. They also have soft serve (in cereal and other flavors) and smoothies made from soft serve.
Chocolate malt cake with marshmallows and malt balls inside. Gooey and dense chocolate goodness. I’m not a huge chocolate fan but my sister ordered this.
We also ordered the compost cookie, cornflake chocolate chip marshmallow cookie and blueberry cream cookie. OMG these were great. My favorite was the blueberry cream cookie because it was like having a scone with milk in cookie form. No great picture of the cookies but there are lots if you google it. Martha Stewart also has the blueberry cookie recipe directly from the chef at Milk bar so I will have to test that out soon. Calls for glucose and European butter! Luckily I think Trader Joe’s has Irish butter but I’m not sure if I will be able to easily get glucose. Apparently Wilton’s makes it so hopefully the candy supply store near me (Choc-Oh-Lot Plus) will have it.
