Momofuku Milk Bar

Warning: this post takes “treat yourself” to a whole new level.

Momofuku is an award-winning bakery and “milk bar” known for its Cereal Milk soft serve (featured in the second photo below with cornflake crunch).

Ever had Kellog’s Corn Flakes cereal? Well this delicious treat actually tastes like your “cereal milk” in soft serve form.  Might sound a bit weird for a flavor, but trust me, it’s delicious.  I’ve recently tried the Fruity Cereal Milk (featured above with cornflake crunch) which tasted exactly like Fruity Pebbles–brought back so many childhood memories!  I even like this flavor more than the original. Don’t be afraid to ask to taste test! Momofuku also has an array of milkshakes on the menu.

Are you a cookie monster? Well, I am, and luckily Momofuku offers 5 different cookies (or more depending on location).  Flavors include: Compost Cookie, Cornflake-Chocolate Chip-Marshamello-Cookie, Corn Cookie (to my surprise it was so good–tastes like corn bread!), Blueberry and Cream Cookie, and Confetti Cookie (similar to a sugar cookie–my favorite!).  Supermodel and philanthropist  Karlie Kloss collaborated with Milk Bar’s Christina Tosi to create “Klossies,” formerly “Karlie’s Cookies.” Sales from each “Perfect 10” cookie (featured below) provides ten school lunches to starving children around the world. “Coco” cookie provides support to young fashion designers, while”Rice & Spice” (gluten, dairy, and nut-free) provides support to children battling pediatric cancer.  Each “5boro” provides five meals to hungry New Yorkers.  Amazing, right?

But wait, there’s more! Their Birthday Cake Truffles are to die for.  Currently on the menu, they also have Chocolate Malt Cake Truffles, which I’m sure are amazing as well.

Not a cookie or soft serve person? No problem because Momofuku also offer pie, but not just any pie–Crack Pie.  Yes, it’s just as addicting as you think.

And let’s not forget the infamous multi-layered cakes! Flavors include Birthday Cake, Chocolate Malt, Strawberry Lemon, Apple Pie, Chocolate Chip, Dulce de Leche, German Chocolate Jimbo, and Salted Pretzel. Someone remember to get me one of these for my birthday please!

by CHLOE. is a vegan, counter-service style restaurant located in Greenwich Village on Macdougal St. and Bleecker St. (185 Bleecker St.). The food is 100% vegan, all natural, plant-based, kosher, and hands down amazing. Their menu is meat, dairy, egg, and guilt free. It has quickly become one of my favorite lunch spots in the city.

Featured: Quinoa Taco Salad (light and delish!),  Smashed Avocado Toast (topped with sweet potato and pepitas), my coconut water (literally a straw in a raw coconut, which was opened right in front of me), Pumpkin Cupcake with Maple Frosting and Burnt Marshmallow (for those who have an extreme sweet tooth because it’s very sweet), Matcha Blueberry Muffin (my favorite, very moist and filled with blueberries), and me with the raw coconut. I have also tried both the  Original and Sweet Potato Air Baked French Fries (gluten free and not pictured because I ate them so quickly) with a house made beet ketchup and chipotle aioli. I’m not the biggest fan of sweet potato fries, however, I now prefer these over the original! Devoured!
