Update on Momofuku Milk Bar - Still don't get the hype

So I decided to give Momofuku Milk Bar another try today to see if I would feel differently.  I didn't.  Still super salty, still super sweet.

Momofuku Milk Bar Banana CakeI tried the banana cake which looked really good in the case.  Thick and gooey - the cake itself is actually quite moist giving it potential.  That was until I tasted the gooey center.

Very rich, very salty - I immediately poured myself a big glass of water to drain away the salty aftertaste.

There is a strong peanut butter taste - I would say the peanut butter overwhelms the banana.

This seems to be a pattern with Momofuku - they sure love their peanut butter!!  All in all - I think the cake almost needs to be diluted - meaning more cake, less filling.

Momofuku Milk Bar CookieI also tried the corn flake chocolate chip marshmallow cookie.  Soooo greasy!!!  I couldn't even finish it!  As you can see in the picture - all oil all the time.

I mean I love butter, but I think even Paula Dean may object to this much...

So, I posted a thread on Chowhound asking for other opinions and this was my favorite comment from bolletje "I haven't been going for a while because it's kind of expensive and fattening and I've been broke and feeling fat lately"

My sentiments exactly.
