Momofuku Bakery - Milk Bar - what to eat

OK- so everything on the menu looks amazing but I need to narrow my selections down. Any suggestions? I know the pork buns are definitely on the list as well as the crack pie, but as you can see I think I could get over loaded very quickly and with at best only getting one visit on this trip....
For me the answer to that question always involves asking about your salt sensitivity. If you like/react well to salt, pretty much everything is great. Cookies are so buttery that the bag decomposed on the walk home. Very decadent and delicious- especially if you like the sweet/salt combo.
I would also say - don't get your heart set on a specific cake, cookie, or pie, since they don't always have every single variety all the time.
those cookies are like fudge brownies...they are insanely sweet and delicious.
i also had the corn flavored soft serve...tasted like corn pops...pretty good.
next time im going for those pies...they look sick.
I usually go for the layer cakes, they're so complex and full of different tastes, processes, ingredients, definitely the anti-cupcake! My current fave is the banana cake. I also like anything chocolate, the dulce de leche cake, and the banana green curry loaf, which goes a long way if you bring it home. The crack pie is something you could make at home (think chess pie) so it holds less interest for me. I like the cookies too, they're just a little more conventional than the cakes.
Ditto on the banana cake - so good! Also the old fashioned donut soft serve currently on the menu. Tastes just like a really good cake doughnut. And those Compost cookies....
Not a fan of the chocolate chip cake w/ passion fruit curd (the combo doesn't taste good), and the cornflake/marshmallow/choc chip cookie is a little too sweet, although I like the texture.
I really want to try the English muffin, but seem to end up there for sweet as opposed to savory.
