Momofuku Milk Bar, N.Y

Always wanted a birthday cake flavoured ice-cream? Look no further. I got you covered! While the weather has been perfect for it, I couldn’t come to NYC and not review an ice-cream place. Actually famous for their naked cakes and crack pie (google it ya self) they sell amazing soft-serve ice-cream too. Their most popular flavours are ‘cereal’ which is literally the flavour of cereal milk and ‘b-day’ the flavour of vanilla cake. I opted for the ‘b’day’ flavour purely for the cute sprinkles. 🙂 I thought I’d found an off-the-beaten-track place but there are actually 9 stores spread across New York. So if you’re not in the East Village like I was, there is probably another store 20 mins away! Location: 251 e 13th st, ny 10003, corner of 13th street / 2nd avenue Opening times: sun – thur 9am – 12am | fri – sat 9am – 1am MILKBARSTORE.COM Advertisements

They didn’t do it just to sell baos, but instead create a mouth piece for the social, cultural, and political issues they cared about. Since 2009, they’ve gone home to feed 200+ homeless families in Orlando, Won the Chow 13 for groundbreaking use of social media, stuck up for Danny Chen, opposed the Tiger Mom, and accidentally hot boxed a restaurant in plain view. Some sh*t be happening some time naw mean?”  Onto the menu, it’s minimal so you could end up ordering everything, which I firmly support if you’ve got the hunger! I ordered the fried fish bao and the …
