Momofoku Milk Bar

I stopped by for the first time on Saturday afternoon and tried the Fruity Pebbles Frozen Yogurt. Longing for some childhood nostalgia, I think this miss the mark by a bit. It was good, don't get me wrong, but wasn't amazing and I would have rather had a bowl of fruity pebbles. Plus, $4 for a small cup is just ridiculous. Up there with Grom prices.

I didn't try the cakes or anything else, but it looked good. Will make a trip back, but will forgo the frozen yogurt.

      I love the corn cookies too! It seems to be less mentioned on the board, but it is my favorite cookie among all at the Milk Bar

      1. re: kobetobiko

        What does the corn cookie taste like?

          1. re: ellenost

            like a really delicious, super-corn tasting, corn muffin top.

      2. The Volcano is great. A heartattack on a plate, but well worth it. A large roll like piece of bread filled with cheese, bacon, potato and pork...yum! The Dulce de Leche cake is also good.

        1. Fruity Pebbles yougurt sounds awesomeeeeeeee. I really love how the Momofuku Dairy bar seems to invent lots of awesome and atypical flavor combinations can't wait to hit it up big time.

            They also had cap n' crunch and lucky charms flavor.

            1. re: offthebeatenpath1

              I know, 4 flavors: Cereal (basically cornflake flavor), cap n' cruch, lucky charms, and pebble fruits. They sound so intriguing! I want to try all 4 of them.

              Anyone tried and have a favorite?

              1. re: kobetobiko

                Wait... I thought the cereal is a milk flavor not yogurt..

                1. re: steakrules85

                  It's a new yogurt flavor - Cereal Flavor.

                  1. re: kobetobiko

                    Cereal milk is corn-flakes flavored. I think they got the flavors right, but still can't get over the icy texture

          2. Correct -- it is both. You can order cereal milk (liquid) by the glass. Or you can order it as a soft serve flavor. Technically all four cereal soft serve flavors were created by steeping cereal in milk, and then using the resulting milk to make the soft serve.

              Wow sounds awesome. I am a huge cereal lover I gotta get over there.

              1. re: kathryn

                I was curious if that is how it was made because that is indeed what it tastes like. But, instead of spending $4 for what is probably about 6oz, you can buy a whole box of Fruity pebbles or Cap n' Crunch and same milk and do the same thing.

                1. re: offthebeatenpath1

                  Yes, that is the basic technique. Toast cereal, steep in milk, strain, and then add a little sugar and salt ... then make that into soft serve.

                    "But, instead of spending $4 for what is probably about 6oz, you can buy a whole box of Fruity pebbles or Cap n' Crunch and same milk and do the same thing."

                    True but what fun is that????

                    1. re: NellyNel

                      I think it's fun (or sad) to be in my late 20's, sitting around eating a nice bowl of fruity pebbles.

                2. You gotta try the carrot cake if they have it - I've tried a large majority of their stuff (I've been like 10 times since it opened) - and that is by far the best carrot cake ever.
