Normally, when I disappear from blogging, it’s just because I’m lazy. But this time, I have a far more interesting story! I was on an epic West Coast vacation for two weeks. I started in Seattle (or well, actually Everett), then went to Portland, San Francisco, Santa Cruz, Cambria, before ending in LA.
When I left, I was idly thinking that I would go to an ice cream shop in every city. That didn’t happen. Instead, I only managed to get ice cream once.
My one ice cream shop stop was Humphry Slocombe in San Francisco.
I made the mistake of going at night, so all my pictures are dark, and they were already sold out of a lot of flavors (like Royal Wedding).
There was a line out the door, which I gather is a frequent occurrence, which also probably explains the surliness of the person working there. But the ice cream was so good, that I’m willing to forgive that.
Even being down a lot of flavors there were so many to choose from I had to try McEvoy Olive Oil and Harvey Milk + Honey Grahm. I already knew I was getting Secret Breakfast after chatting about it with the people waiting in front of me.
I got Harvey Milk + Honey Grahm and Secret Breakfast. Secret Breakfast was deliciously bourbon-y. Harvey Milk + Honey Grahm is what I think cereal milk ice cream is supposed to taste like, creamy and deliciously sweet.
Even though I only managed to get ice cream once, there were plenty of non-ice cream deliciousness on my trip.
And that was my vacation. Now that it’s really ice cream season, I’ll be making a concerted effort to post more. So check back next week for more delicious goodness.
