On celebration of National Ice Cream Day in the National Ice Cream Month, I led an ice cream tour to some of the best places in San Francisco with my former tour attendee and new friends in San Francisco. With two cars and 8 people in tow, we drove all over San Francisco to experience (note experience rather than eat) as much ice cream as possible…
And yes, due to our incredible good parking karma, we always found a spot within a block of the destination.
First, we started at Mr. and Mrs. Miscellaneous in the Dogpatch. A taste of the hard frozen delicacy from former pastry chefs. They’re well known for earl grey.
Then we went to Mitchells. A plethora of Flipino and tropical flavors such as avocado, ube, buko.
Third. Humphry Slocombe. One of the best places to get alcohol-infused ice cream (Secret Breakfast is the known flavor of…bourbon and cornflakes). They innovate and they do it right. I love Thai Chili Lime!
Fourth. Smitten. Liquid nitrogen makes the ice cream so creamy. Only four flavors each day all made from fresh ingredients.
Finally, Ice Cream Bar. Here some people could not take that much and wanted a break. But this was selected as the bookend due to availability of savory foods. It’s a great place to relax…after a tour! This is where I had my ice cream happy hour for my birthday!
