MomoMilkBar Introduces Pretzel Cake Truffle
MomoMidtown (aka Ma Peche) (56th btw 5th+6th) is definitely a favorite in these parts, especially when you’re talking about the special Midtown Lunch menu and/or a stop at the Milk Bar. Luckily for me, I got to do both last week, but since you already know all about the chicken banh mi I ate, I’ll skip straight to dessert: the newest cake truffle being offered… pretzel.
The pretzel cake truffle made its debut at both Milk Bar locations last month, and has been available at the Midtown branch ever since. The outside is malted pretzel crumbs which surrounds chocolate pretzel cake. I found that, similar to other Milk Bar desserts, the pretzel taste wasn’t overwhelming, and a good balance was struck between the salty and sweet. Of the cake truffles I’ve had, it reminded me most of the Malted Chocolate, but with a definite salty twist. If you’re someone who loves salty and sweet, you definitely need to pick some up before they disappear forever!
