To finish off the night, after a brief visit to Veniero’s, TC and I wandered past Momofuku Milk Bar for some cereal milk soft serve. Pretty teeny cup for $4.50, right? Well, I decided to try a bite of his, and …. yeah I love(d) drinking the milk from the bottom of my cereal bowl after I’d eaten all the cereal. It tasted sweet and better than milk normally does to me. But half the fun for me apparently was eating the sugary cereal in the first place, because the first thing I thought when I took a spoonful of this was: “Egh! Who ate my cereal?!” I Tweeted about how we’re eating David Chang’s backwash – I know, logically, that they probably just add sugary cereal to milk and then strain it before making that milk into cereal milk soft serve, but still, that’s how I felt. I think I’ll pass on this if offered again… just very odd tasting cereal milk without the cereal ever being there.
But honestly, I have to say, the idea is pretty genius. I’ll give the man his due even when I don’t like him.
