MILK: our first visit

Hi... Wife took me to MILK (on beverly blvd.) yesterday (mid-afternoon), which seemed to be a good time to go. Really, really good stuff, and here's what we sampled:

a) butterscotch-banana ice cream bar: wow, I could eat one of these daily! A thick crunchy coating of butterscotch and almond slivers, encasing intensely fragrant banana icre cream. Substantial and worth the $3.
b) mint-chip ice cream sandwich: again, a very thick wheel of mint-chip ice cream sanwiched between two flat, dense, (french)macron-like minty green cookies. The flat macron cookies were almost too sweet, but their density was perfect when navigating the minty coolness in between.
c & d) ooey-gooey cookie and brownie: both rich, impossibly moist, and iconic.
e) media noche sandwich: my first media noche ever, so I don't know if this version was representative of the genre. Excellent bread, pressed/grilled, but not as flat as I expected. Flavorsome roast pork, ham, melted cheese, aioli, and believe, arugula leaves. Nice large serving for about $8, with simple mixed salad. I'd eat it again, but I really want to sample their croque madame or nicoise salad next time.
-- Also, thier cakes and puddings look awesome. next time, we'll try the butterscotch pudding, the blue velvet cake, and the marshmallow tres leche cake, and the sorbets and custom milkshakes. Our rule is to not exceed $20 (or 5000 calories) per visit !
