I was kept away from my new favorite cookie...
...by a weeklong business trip (but, while in Toronto, I discovered one of the best chocolatiers ever).
I wasted no time returning to Momofuku this morning. After all, I hadn't sampled the banana cookie yet. (Nor the corn, but I'm saving that for another week.)
Who needs yogurt when you can have warm banana cookies for breakfast?
True to form, the cookie was monstrous, full of flavor, slightly undercooked, and it was oozing butter, leaving a slick residue on my fingertips.
I do love to gush about sweets, but I also have some gripes about the new bakery.
I hate to be one of those bloggers but since they seem to have been taking constructive criticism to heart (they've rearranged the interior layout and, instead of using multiple napkins and paper bags, they're using sanitary gloves and enviro-friendly whopper containers), I've gotta say: their process needs serious attention.
When there are 5 people behind the counter, and 3 people in line, at 9 o'clock in the morning, it shouldn't take 5 minutes to get 2 cookies. It just shouldn't.
But was it worth it? You betcha.
