Every now and again, you come across a food product that is so good, somewhat unique, yet very simple in concept. Most recently that product for me has been the corn cookie at Momofuko Milk Bar.
Yes, Christina Tossi is extremely creative and a strong new presence on the city’s culinary scene. What she’s done with the soft serve at Milk Bar has been amazing. She recently ditched the sweets inspired flavors for fruit and herb inspired ones. The new flavors are lemon verbena, rosemary, blackberry, and apricot. I tasted all four last weekend and have to say the lemon verbana and rosemary are outstanding.
The one thing about the corn cookies is that are not made every day and sometimes sell out when they are in stock. If you can get there on a day they have them, get one. I haven’t let you down yet have I?
