COMPOST COOKIES & CRACK PIE???




One of my weirdest discoveries was in a funkly little bakery attached to an Asian-Fusion restaurant in New York called 'Momofuku Ssäm'. 'Milk Bar' bakery offers a wide selection of weird and wonderful baked treats for the adventurous and sugar addicted glutton. Treats such as 'cinammon and wasabi sausage rolls', 'crack pie' and the odd, but surprisingly delicious 'compost cookie'. Why 'compost'? Well because literally everything except for the kitchen sink has been thrown into the cookie dough! They contain pretzels, potato chips (thats crisps to us!), coffee, oats, butterscotch and chocolate chips, sounds absolutely disgusting, but you'd be wrong... They aren't. They are actually scandalously good in a 'pregnancy-craving-ish' sort of way. Another gut busting version of their cookies are the 'Cornflake, marshmallow and chocolate chip' cookie... Again, highly delicious, highly naughty.

If that isn't your cup of tea, you may find sanctuary in 'crack pie' - which contrary to it's label, fortunately, does not contain any illegal substance (although the actual ingredient would probably legitimately kill you anyway) - made with an oat crust and copious quantities of butter, double cream, brown sugar, white sugar and some corn flour... Its basically high in fat and contains astronomical levels of sugar, so you see kids, it can be addictive! Just like crack!

They also do Kimchee croissants, green curry banana bread and incredible soft serve ice cream with a salty, crunchy pistachio topping. Delicious and totally unlike anything I have ever tried anywhere else. I like it, thumbs up for all things weird and wonderful!
