Mitchell's Ice Cream: "Filipino and Latino Fusion Ice Cream!" Mitchell's Ice Cream Tip by machomikemd
Mitchell's Ice Cream, San Francisco: 5 reviews and 8 photos
For fifty years, Mitchell's has been a San Francisco staple, serving ice cream and sorbets in a myriad of flavors from it's unprepossessing little storefront (there are a few benches outside, but no tables). It has been dishing up San Francisco's best, creamiest, and most imaginative ice cream since 1953.For exotic cravings, you can try the likes of avocado, lychee, Thai tea and philippine mango, ube (purple yam), ube macapuno (purple yam with coconut sport-see my manila local customs page), grasshopper, etc.
This family-run Mitchell's produces premium ice creams predicated on a 16% butterfat base (hence the extra creaminess!). Tropical fruits are shipped in fresh, and the resultant goods have people lining up for a taste (or more).
Favorite Dish: Exotic flavors include avocado, buko (baby coconut), langka (jackfruit), macapuno (sweet coconut), mango, pineapple, and ube (purple yam), all made from fruit specially imported from the Philippines. There are always 40 or more flavors on offer, including the expected (chocolate, coffee, rum raisin) and the un- (Thai tea, chocolate caramel crackle). It also sells ice cream cakes and pies.
Costs: $ 2.10 a scoop, $ 3.45 double scoop and $5.10 a pint.
