Humphry Slocombe

Humphry Slocombe, 2790 Harrison  (at 24th Street) San Francisco 415 550-6971

Whenever I go to buy fresh masa at La Palma, I somehow end up at Humphry Slocombe, the iconoclastic ice cream shop known for its wild  flavors. I never order them. I go for single flavored ice cream like nutty, toasty, black sesame, the ice cream version of halvah, and the inspiration  the luscious sundae served at Nojo, two big scoops of black sesame ice cream with candied kumquats and crunchy peanut crackers. At Humphry, I pair black sesame with Blue Bottle Vietnamese coffee ice cream, with serious and pure coffee flavor.

Humphry gets credit in my book for using Straus Organic milk and cream for their ice creams and milk sherbets; and for patiently allowing endless tastes.  You may want strangle the over-tasters in line in front of you, but when it’s your turn, I guarantee that you won’t be able to resist trying at least one oddball, like prosciutto ice cream. I do, and then get my standbys.

    I too try the wacky flavors then end up with my stand by. The one I always end up with is the Balsamic Caramel. Try it! It’s irresistible.

  2. I agree. That’s a great one. But I didn’t see it the other day.
