San Francisco: Smitten Ice Cream

I was in San Francisco this past weekend for my cousin's wedding, and I managed to squeeze in lots and lots of great food in Napa Valley, San Francisco, and Sunnyvale! One of my cousins brought us to Smitten Ice Cream in Hayes Valley, which everyone must try.

We visited Smitten Ice Cream following a great brunch at Zazie. I was quite full from pancakes, but the sound of made-to-order ice cream was really appealing. The ice cream is made of fresh and locally sourced ingredients, and was truly the smoothest ice cream I've ever had.

The flavors change seasonally. When we were there, the choices were tcho chocolate, vanilla, earl grey with milk chocolate chips, and olive oil with lavender shortbread.

The ice cream maker known as Kelvin. The founder developed Kelvin, and it only takes 60 seconds to make the ice cream from scratch. The maker runs on liquid nitrogen.

Earl Grey with chocolate chips, kiddie size, $3. Such a strong earl grey flavor, and really the most amazing smooth texture. The chocolate chips were very thin and crunchy.

There were a few food trucks next door to Smitten serving pizza and steak. On the other side of the ice cream shop is a beer garden. A great place to spend a sunny Saturday.
