A visit to Momofuku Milk Bar in New York City for their famous crack pie and more.
After Breadfast yesterday we spent our last day in New York walking, walking, walking!
…through Greenwich Village (and the building exterior from “Friends”)…
…all the way back to Chelsea…
…where I passed out from carb overload and sheer exhaustion.
Recharged, we took one final stroll before the sun set.
No trip to NYC is complete without a visit to Central Park!
I love it here in the summer, when there are so many outdoor activities going on. We stumbled upon this group of people taking tango lessons:
Reminded me of a deleted dance scene out of my cousins’ movie “Little Manhattan,” which shot all over the Upper West Side and Central Park back in 2005 (and, crazily, has been trending on twitter since airing on The Disney Channel a few weeks ago!)
There was one final stop on my foodie checklist. Momofuku Milk Bar!
This time I came for one thing. Pie, please:
We also tried some soft serve samples – Cereal Milk and Blackberry-Kaffir Lime
DUDE. Cereal milk tastes exactly like – well, the milk leftover in your cereal bowl! Cornflakes, actually. It was weird and awesome at the same time.
We got our pies to go. They come packaged in these giant McDonalds-esque containers:
Also picked up one of their Bagel Bombs – this was the dill flavor
Stuffed with cucumber, cream cheese, and (of course) LOTS of dill
I had just a bit, with some Miso Soup (the same packets I’d been using while filming “Yes We’re Open”)
Actually ate the salty stuff AFTER dessert, but I wanted this post to end on a sweet note:
Abe ordered Candy Bar, and I have been dying to try their infamous Crack Pie for years, so we tried 1/3 of each other’s picks. Plus fresh berries:
The Candy Bar pie tastes like an upscale Reese’s PB Cup with lots of salt. The Crack Pie is very reminiscent of pecan pie (without the nuts). I believe that both have recipes you can find online – just google ’em.
Bye bye, Big Manhattan!
