|We’re in San Francisco for the Winter Fancy Food Show. A former NIBBLE editor with ties to S.F. tipped us off to Bi-Rite Creamery, the ice cream offshoot of Bi-Rite, a specialty grocery store in The Mission, on 18th Street off Guerrero. While it was quite a hike from our H.Q. at at the W Hotel downtown (we mean, quite a long cab ride–much faster back on the BART), we trust Melody’s jugment–and boy, was she right!|
We only regret that we had taken her other piece of advice and first eaten the pizza at Delfina’s down the block. Good as it was, it was another good pizzeria, whereas Bi-Rite Creamery ranks among the best ice cream we’ve ever had. And after the pizza, we could only manage three small scoops. They were absolute perfection: Salted Caramel, Malted Milk With Peanut Brittle and Honey Lavender. We’ve got to figure out how to get back for more, amid the incessant eating that is the Fancy Food Show. Bi-Rite Creamery is now a permanent stop on our visits to S.F.; we’re happy to make a lunch or dinner out of it. Note, though, that there are just three bar stools inside and some nice benches around the trees outside. You can also buy it by the pint at the Bi-Rite grocery down the block.
