America's Most Instagrammable Desserts Are Coming To L.A. With Momofuku Milk Bar
SOON. (Photo by Sam Horine/Gothamist)
Birthday cake truffles, cereal milk, cereal milk soft serve, crack pie, savory bagel bombs, and all the other goods that Momofuku Milk Bar has to offer will soon be landing in Los Angeles. While their entry into the L.A. dining scene has been confirmed by reps, no details are available yet. It's believed that they will open in 2017.
The NYC-based Milk Bar (which has been expanding pretty fast) is run by Christina Tosi, who is currently seeking out a spot to move into (Tosi herself was recently in town, likely scouting). According to Eater, it will probably be "in the heart of the city," but no lease has been signed yet.
We've reached out to the Milk Bar team for more details, and will update when we hear back.
Get ready to wait on line for these, our favorite, items:
#1 Birthday Cake Truffles
#2 Birthday Cake
#3 Cereal Milk Soft Serve (with crunchy cereal bits on top!)

NO ONE HAS EVER INSTAGRAMMED THIS BECAUSE IT JUST LOOKS LIKE MILK! But it's very good.
#5 Crack Pie
#6 Pork Bun With Egg
