Momofuku Milk Bar and Bakery

251 E. 13th St. New York, NY 10003 | East Village | 347-577-9504

Location Description:

The David Chang empire expands with this sleek bakery, which cooks up ludicrously delicious pastries, ice cream, savory breads and sandwiches. You might be tired of hearing about every move chef David Chang makes, but you can't deny the addictive, almost witchy allure of baked goods like kimchi foccacia, English muffin with tempura-fried egg and pork belly, or a crusty bun filled with potato gratin, gruyere cheese and bacon. And that's just on the savory side. Sweets include the best soft serve ice cream we've ever had (salty pistachio-caramel), assorted cookies (try the corn or snickerdoodle) and crack pie, which contains no actual narcotics but might as well.
