The ice cream binge continues in San Francisco. While everyone goes gaga for Bi-Rite, I was sort of underwhelmed. There’s still one other ice creamy heavy hitter in the area, Humphry Slocombe. Random-ass name huh? But it sure does stick in your mind.

The Pouter got her favorite, Secret Breakfast, which is bourbon ice cream with cornflakes. I got the butterbeer. Neither ice creams were too sweet which I certainly appreciated, but the texture fell short of my favorite ice cream place here in Portland, Salt and Straw. It wasn’t heavy or creamy enough.
It’s so hard to describe my particular preference in ice cream texture, but Humprhy Slocombe just didn’t do it for me. In addition, I was a little put off by the ghettoness of the ice cream shop. I think I expect clean, cute, nostalgic, inspired. Humphry Slocombe looks like a whitewash walled extra large closet.
