As a dessert enthusiast, I was very excited when Milk Bar decided to open a location in Los Angeles. Since the store opened, I have had some Milk Bar items at parties, I have visited and ordered some at the store, and I have even had Milk Bar delivered through Postmates (which was when it first opened and I did not want to wait in a very long line so I discovered the best hack). Milk Bar is known for its desserts created by founding chef Christina Tosi. The menu really plays into the fun, cutesy, and decadent aspects of desserts, such as never questioning whether too many sprinkles is a problem. The store has a laundry list of items that take a few trips to get through, but below is my quick assessment of the items I have tried so far, in three words or less:
Confetti Cookie – Just Okay, Dry
Cornflake Choco Chip Marshmallow Cookie – Better! Still Dry
Corn Cookie – Weird…. And Dry
Birthday Cake Truffles – So Yummy
Chocolate Malt Cake Truffles – Even Yummier
Crack Pie – Actually Addictive
Pepperoni Bomb – Doughy and Delicious
Chocolate Malt Shake – Maybe Too Chocolatey
Cereal Milk Soft Serve – Simple, Refreshingly Yummy
Funny enough I have not yet tried their cakes, which is what they are mostly known for as the confetti layered cake has become synonymous with the Milk Bar name.
The Los Angeles flagship store on Melrose offers classes. $95 might seem like a lot for one class, but you also get to eat what you make so it balances out. Milk Bar merch of course.The refrigerated section at Milk Bar is really the best, with truffles and my fave crack pie.
