Trying Out the New Treats at Momofuku Milk Bar

Milk Bar interior

This month I discovered via Twitter that Momofuku Milk Bar had switched up their menu adding a few new treats. They finally swapped in a new soft serve (blackberry-lime) and added a new bread (pickled jalapeƱo and cotija cornbread) and new cake balls (strawberry lemon). With so many news things on the menu, clearly a trip to check them all out was in order.

Blackberry Kaffir Lime Soft serve
First up the soft serve ($4.50). The kaffir lime lends a citrusy, almost floral overtone to the sweet blackberry soft serve. Very summery. Though it’s not an overwhelmingly sweet flavor, I would say it’s more sweet than tart. This flavor replaced the salty pistachio; cereal treat soft serve is still available. According to the guy behind the counter the blackberry should be sticking around for 3 months.

The corn bread ($6) is definitely worth getting heated which melts the cotija cheese. The bread is soft, tender, moist and made with whole kernals. Most cornbreads I’ve come across are kind of dry and crumbly. It’s pricy for sure–for $6, I could get a whole lunch elsewhere, but if you really love good cornbread, this is a worthy one time splurge.

Strawberry Lemon Cake Balls
This month’s new cake ball (3 for $4) is strawberry lemon cake. It was very dense yet moist, super lemony cake. Has a pleasant strawberry cheese cake taste. These are definitely for those with a sweet tooth. Three cake balls for $4 may seem on the steep side, but if you’re a Milk bar fan, it’s the only what you can try their cake without ordering a whole one.

  • Am I the only one not happy with this switcheroo? I’ve been getting the salty pistachio about once a week since they opened. I’ll never tire of it! First world problems!

    • The guy behind the counter admitted to missing the salty pistachio, too. Hopefully it will be back come fall. I can’t say I miss it myself–I’m allergic to nuts, so I’ve never had the chance to try it.
