hard as it is to believe, j and i have been diehard momofuku noodle bar fans since it opened. i had those ramen cravings throughout both pregnancies, and we made our way there every couple of months for several despite our being way out of the typical age range for those early days of david chang — before he got so famous. so of course we had to check out the momofuku bakery & milk bar on our recent east village weekend. while we were both underwhelmed by the pastry treats we tried (i had the crack pie and j had a banana cookie) we were as always overwhelmed with the all mighty pork bun that we had as our savory treat. this one was a doubly delicious because it came with a very gooey tasty egg. while we cannot always handle the musical selections, we will continue to be big momofuku fans (we are eternally hopeful that someday in our future we will be able to visit the very challenging to get into momofuku ko), and we will come back this summer to check out the cereal-flavored soft serve ice cream. momofuku bakery & milk bar, 207 2nd avenue with the entrance on 13th street, manhattan, new york.
