Update: Momofuku denies rumours that a Milk Bar is coming to Toronto
Rumour has it that Milk Bar will soon join Noodle Bar, Daishō and Shōtō at David Chang’s University Avenue Momofuku complex, adding a sweet note to the acclaimed chef’s Toronto line-up. The original New York shop is famous for its irreverently named treats, like compost cookies, and curious flavour combinations, like banana curry bread and cereal-flavoured milk. A highly topical twist: one of the bakery’s bestselling items is a buttery confection called Crack Pie.
UPDATE: A local blog posted this morning that two staffers at the Toronto Momofuku complex confirmed a Toronto Milk Bar is on the way, but Momofuku’s press team says otherwise. Our contact tells us that opening a Milk Bar in Toronto is a “dream;” however, there are still no firm plans to do so. We guess we’ll just have to keep dreaming, too.
