The night before we headed back to New York, I wanted to try some local San Francisco ice cream. When I was organizing a social event a while back, I ordered ice cream sandwiches from It’s It but I actually wanted to order foie gras ice cream sandwiches from Humphry Slocombe. My friend Cliff told me about it (he’s my food connection on the west coast) but ever since he mentioned them, it’s been on my mind. Luckily, it wasn’t too far from where we were hanging out so I was able to stop in for their ice cream!
I thought the shop was going to be more kitschy, but it’s actually very plain from the outside:
The interior has a double cow head:
And cute seating:
They make ice cream flavors in their shop and the flavors change all the time – sadly, they didn’t have any foie gras ice cream when we were in town but they did have these flavors:
They’re super generous with samples (I ended up trying all of them) and my friend ended up getting coffee and secret breakfast:
And I ordered the oolong tea on a cone:
I loved all of the flavors and really wanted to get a huge ice cream sundae with a ton of scoops but felt really full from dinner so decided against doing the double scoop. The oolong tea was really smooth and creamy and had the great taste of quality oolong tea. The secret breakfast was also really good – it reminded me of the combinations Momofuku Milk Bar does (although to be completely honest, Humphry Slocombe’s was a tad better!) So glad I finally had a chance to visit Humphry Slocombe!
