If you’re looking for a simple scoop of chocolate ice cream…or vanilla…or strawberry…you’re not going to find it at Humphry Slocombe in San Francisco.
Okay, you might see one of them nestled somewhere amongst the wacky flavors on the ever-changing list. But you’ll have a better chance of finding Fumé (smoked) ice cream, Chocolate passion fruit, and cinnamon brittle. There’s a decidedly non-kosher Boccalone proscuitto ice cream, as well as Ancho coffee, Jesus juice sorbet (you don’t want to know…), Balsamic caramel, and Secret breakfast, a mixture of milk and sweetened breakfast cereal.
Granted these flavors aren’t for the timid. And they’re probably not what most people expect when they’re handed a cone. But each scoop is a one-of-a-kind experience and the flavors are the work of ice cream-maker Jake Godby, who’s rearranging the boundary between sweet and savory.
And that’s kosher with me.
