 Finally! Portland-based Salt & Straw will open its first San Francisco shop, tomorrow, April 14, 2017, at 2201 Fillmore Street, Phone: 415. 829.2803, according to owners, Kim and Tyler Malek. A second San Francisco location at 580 Hayes Street, will open in "early summer." Although San Francisco is heralded by Tyler Malek for its "culinary diversity" and "locally sourced" food products, Los Angeles had the honor of being the first outpost in California for a Salt & Straw location.

Kim and Tyler Malek,
Owners and Creators of  Straw & Ice

Ramen Ice Cream is flavored with noodles, pork and carrots. Strawberry Honey Balsamic with Black Pepper and Pineapple-Star Anise Ripple with Honeycomb Brittle are just a few of the weird, wacky and outrageously delicious ice cream choices offered by Salt & Straw. The San Francisco menu will, like the Portland and Los Angeles stores, be tailored to local tastes with exclusive flavors.

Can't make it to Portland-Los Angeles or San Francisco to feast on this incredible ice cream? No worries. For $65 a month you can join the "Seasonal Pints Club" and have Salt & Straw delivered to your door! 

Is the hype surrounding Salt & Straw worth it? You bet! This blogger had the pleasure of of enjoying their Avocado and Strawberry Sherbet at the Abbot Kinney shop opening in the fall of 2015. It was amazing!
