Yes it’s been around forever and already been blogged about by every man and his dog, but we don’t have this in Melbourne so it’s new for me! I’m also a big David Chang fan. And crack pie has been in my dreams for too long.

Anyway, we arrived into Toronto around 3pm this afternoon, picked up our hire car and found our way to our hotel. I’m finally getting over this damn flu that’s been kicking my ass for the past week, and my stomach problems have temporarily eased up; I was pretty excited to realise I was actually genuinely really hungry for the first time in two weeks! Yay! So husband was kind enough to treat me to dinner at Monofuku!

We got the pork buns to start because pork belly is my favourite thing and I’d be happy to drown in a vat of it. I’ve eaten a decent amount of pork belly in my time, and this was easily the best belly I’ve ever had; Momofuku may be old news in the foodie world, but holy wow that was some good bao..

We also had the ramen – probably doesn’t need to be said that this was incredible too. Easy to see what all the fuss is about now!

After dinner, I dragged us upstairs to the Milk Bar… Oh my… I know I’m gonna have more variety in New York, but I figured I may as well get a head start 😉 compost cookie and crack pie. I have to be honest, the cookie was nice without being amazing (could be because it was cold rather than a more pleasant room temperature), but that crack pie… …. !!!! It was everything.. All buttery and sugary with that oaty crust.. Similar to a coconut-free ANZAC cookie taste, but even more buttery!

My stomach has taken a rapid turn downhill now that we’re back in the hotel and relaxing, but it was totally worth it – the food was amazing! Wish they’d bring the empire to Melbourne next!

  1. I would also happily drown in a vat of pork belly, so this post is making me salivate! Looks amazing. I can’t wait to try the crack pie in NYC next year!

  2. If you’re a fan of David Chang, you should check out season 1 of Mind of a Chef! I instantly got hungry every time I watched it and that’s where I first heard of Momofuku!
