my biggest disappointment this year was momofuku milk bar
I spent 30 dollars on various desserts there. None of them were horrible but they were all just way too sweet (and I have a huge sweet tooth!). I really expected better. I also got sick an hour after eating there, I wanted to go back there to vomit on there door and say momo fuk you
