San Francisco 2014: An Index

I had a pretty epic six days in San Francisco the first week of June 2014.  I still can’t quite believe the number of places I got to try and the amount of food I ate.  I also can’t believe that I pounded out nine reports covering the entire trip, with most posted the same night or within the following day.  My blog had never been more active, and maybe just a little harder to navigate.  So here’s an index to help people locate a report for a particular place without having to scroll through a bunch of posts.

  • Day One:
  • Day Two:  Bar Tartine (New American), Fujiyoshi (Ramen)
  • Day Three:  Turtle Tower (Vietnamese), Lers Ros (Thai), Mitchell’s (Ice Cream), La Ciccia (Sardinian)
  • Day Four:
    • Part One:  Craftsman and Wolves (Bakery), Happy Moose Juice (Juice Bar), Xanath (Ice Cream)
    • Part Two:  Zen Yai (Thai), Smitten (Ice Cream), Tosca Cafe (Italian)
    • Part Three:  State Bird Provisions (New American)
  • Day Five:  Hai Ky Mi Gia (Chinese-Vietnamese), Pig & Pie (American), Humphry Slocombe (Ice Cream), Three Twins (Ice Cream), Nopa (New American)
  • Day Six:  Ha Nam Ninh (Vietnamese), Mr. and Mrs. Miscellaneous (Ice Cream), Boccalone (Italian)

I posted a quick little list of factoids at the end of my Day Six report, which mentioned that I visited seven ice cream shops while in San Francisco, and I also had ‘ice cream’ (frozen sabayon) at SBP on Day Four.  So to close this post, I thought I’d do an unscientific and non-rigorous ranking of the ice cream flavors I had on my trip:

  1. Humphry Slocombe’s “Secret Breakfast” (Bourbon Ice Cream, Corn Flakes)
  2. Bi-Rite Creamery’s Roasted Banana
  3. Three Twin’s Chocolate Orange Confetti
  4. Bi-Rite Creamery’s Strawberry Balsamic
  5. Smitten’s Olive Oil with Lavender Shortbread
  6. Mr. and Mrs. Miscellaneous’s Pink Guava
  7. Xanath’s Mexican Vanilla Bean
  8. Mitchell’s Ice Cream’s Ube (Purple Yam)
  9. Three Twins’ Lemon Cookie

Those who know the SF ice cream scene may be surprised how “low” I ranked Smitten and Mr. and Mrs. Miscellaneous.  I was very impressed with the “build quality” of their ice creams, but the flavors that I had just didn’t work for me.  They would have easily moved into 2nd and 3rd place had the flavors clicked.  Also, I decided not to rank SBP’s dessert, as it had other components, not just the ‘ice cream’.
