There are a handful of places trying interesting flavor combinations, but the texture or character of the base ice cream leaves something to be desired. This is definitely NOT the case at Bi-Rite Creamery. The ice cream is creamy and rich, forming a perfect canvas that really allows their ice cream flavors to shine.
I had a cone with one scoop of balsamic strawberry and one scoop of basil - a great combination. My partner had the sundae with chocolate ice cream (and it's a nice deep, dark, rich chocolate!), bergamot-scented olive oil and sea salt. Unbelievable! If you've never tried olive oil on ice cream before, it's pretty magical. I could have done without all the whipped cream that came on the sundae, though. It was a bit of overkill on an otherwise perfect sundae.
Go here, even if the line looks long. The line moves fast, and it's worth the wait anyway!
