LOS ANGELES (CIRCA) — Los Angeles is home to some wildly creative food concepts and restaurants. The latest one we discovered is called Milk Tavern, located in the Koreatown neighborhood not far from Downtown LA.
According to Milk Tavern owner Alex Sohn K-Town is known for its lively atmosphere and party locations. That is what led him to create an all-in-one bar, cafe, and ice cream shop with everyday cereals being the leading menu item. If you're in the mood for a craft beer, salty food, or even liquor-infused ice cream, Milk Tavern has you covered.
"We're mainly a cereal bar. In fact, we're the biggest cereal bar in the entire West Coast."
Milk Tavern offers a wide-ranging menu of signature items, and cereal is central to everything. There are 20 cereals and 20 toppings available to customize any order. The No. 1-selling item, however, is the Cotton Candy Ice Cream Burrito.
The standard fare features Froot Loops and two scoops of vanilla ice cream rolled up in between slabs of cotton candy. But what makes the burrito even more unique is that it can be customized with any of the liquor-infused ice creams that are available, along with any cereals and/or toppings of your choice.
Milk Tavern is open to all ages, but the whole concept is built around the idea of everyone channeling their inner child. Sohn said he wanted a place for adults to come in and feel like being a kid again. For no extra charge, there's a ping-pong table ready for tournaments, a stack of board games, and a nice outdoor lounge for all to enjoy. It's definitely like an adult playground in the middle of lively K-Town.
Be sure to follow Milk Tavern, and check it out if you're ever in the area.
