One Slice of Grasshopper Pie: $6.00
Chocolate crust, lightly toasted marshmallows, graham cracker crumbs, a touch of salt, and bold punches of mint. Talk about excess, but it’s all about mixing and matching unlikely flavors at the Momofuku Milk Bar. With that, naturally comes hits and misses (see prior post), but if you’re a fan of mint and in need of a sweet fix, this grasshopper pie is it. After our ssam trip, Anny and I made a pit stop at the Milk Bar next door. The grasshopper pie, not unlike the grasshopper drink, has a creamy smooth body but with a rocky road-like topping. It’s by no means light, but the mint is undeniably refreshing. It was tough to resist the compost cookie, and while I’m glad I did that night, I’d still stick to that cookie and reserve the pricey slice of grasshopper for an emergency case of the sweet tooth.
