As a natural contrarian, I'm aware of my tendency to want to hate something that everyone else loves. So, it is with this tendency in mind that I fairly jab a pin into the Momofuku hype balloon. Puffin was having a bad day - I was hoping to cheer her up with a jolt of sugar. We got three cookies and a chocolate shake. The peanut butter cookie was good, no complaints there. However, it wasn't any better than the ones my mom makes - and at $1.75 a piece, I'm gonna talk to my mom about coming outta retirement to open up a cookie shop.
The other two cookies: the compost (a strange mix containing pretzels and potato chips amongst other things) and the cornflake-marshmallow-chocolate chip left both of us flat. The latter was overly sweet and had a hard, candy-like crunch that I didn't care for. We didn't finish them. Not shown is the chocolate shake, which was made from bavarian cream ice cream and chocolate milk. It was ok, nothing special. However, a $6 shake better curl the hair on my shins. Yeah, you read that right - six friggin dollars! That's like 4 small tacos at Tacos Matamoros!
It was about then that I became totally annoyed. They don't even give you chairs to sit in - you stand at chest-high tables. Ok, ok, I am getting carried away. I don't mind overpaying for stuff, it just better be good when I do. I would rather overspend at Trois Pommes.
