I like apple pie—especially fresh baked with ice cream—but if asked to prioritize all the desserts in the world, apple pie would pretty far down on my list of favourites. I was hoping Momofuku’s apple pie would be transcendental, but it was just a fried apple pie. A good fried apple pie, but apple pie nonetheless.

I love sour cream – it’s tang, it’s thick creaminess and the way it is essential to certain dishes without being the star. I’ve eaten many tubs of sour cream and never has it occurred to me to make ice cream with it.
As a kid, I admit, I ate my fair share of McDonald’s apple pies and I liked them. I only ate them when they were hot though; if by some chance, I’d find an apple pie in the fridge, I’d put it in the microwave to heat it up so the gooey filling would liquify and ooze.
Chang’s rice with miso soup is simple and satisfying, if, in his own words, “maybe a little boring.” I’m not really too much a fan of miso soup, but Chang’s has a deep mushroom flavour with just a hint of earthy whole grain barley miso.
I’m just getting back into cooking from Momofuku and I’m finding that the tiny dishes from Ko are perfect for hot summer days where I don’t want to eat anything at all.
