There’s nothing more wonderful and satisfying than eating a bowl of ice cream. Strawberry, almond fudge, chocolate, cookie and mint all in one. A little sweetness goes a long way. But THIS? This makes the rest of the day beautiful.
Mitchell’s the one in my neighborhood. They have exotic flavors like ube (purple yam) and cantaloupe, and the Filipino traditional dessert, Halo Halo. There is always a line out the tiny shop, even in the dead of winter. I admire the ice cream eaters and shiver at a distance. San Francisco is just too cold for me to entertain the idea of eating ice cream.
But here I am, tasting the famous Tucker’s ice cream in Oakland. That’s the way to do it. Cross the Bay. The temperature is significantly higher and the sun is not covered by the fog. A real summer calls for a real treat.
(Thank you, Jack!)
