We finally made it to MILK on Beverly Blvd. for some dairy sweets and nostalgia. MILK just opened only several weeks ago and the place is already lined up with dairy loving consumers.
I think MILK's most popular item on the menu are going to be their delicious bon bons. For 25 cents or 12 for $3, these baby MILK items are perfect as an after-lunch dessert. Their Coffee Toffee bon bons are incredible. I recommend eating like 50 of them. Really.
Even though my dessert hating bf wasn't initially interested in getting anything at MILK, he's a sucker for anything blood orange and ordered their blood orange sorbet. D said it was only alright because it was a bit too chalky.
For too long Angelenos have been hooked on smoothies and boba drinks, but MILK is definitely trying to bring back the old school love for shakes. From Triple Chocolate Shakes to fancy Coffee Toffee Crunch shakes, MILK offers several shakes, malts, and floats which will satisfy all sorts of shake cravings.
My Root Beer Float was perfect and refreshing. It was a treat to have fresh vanilla bean ice cream to bring this shake to a gourmet level. Too bad the whip cream was too rich. The whip cream left a heavy film on the top of my mouth...seriously felt like I was licking a spoonful of margarine.
There are many more delicious treats at MILK. MILK's variety of homemade ice cream sandwiches, bars, cookies, sandwiches, salads, and breakfast items (breakfast coming soon!) are meant to please everyone because MILK is one of those places where feeling like a chubby kid again feels so right. MILK also offers soy ice cream in chocolate, vanilla, and coffee toffee. Even lactose intolerant people can feel like a chubby kid again.
MILK parking is available across the street in the back. There was suppose to be an attendant taking care of the double-parkers, however MILK is young and the management is still working out kinks and getting into their routine. With no parking attendant, D and I were blocked in for a good HOUR. Although the management apologized, it was definitely was a damper on our dairy outing.
