You sort of worry in Portland that all of the places that people hype will be disappointing. Here’s another place that’s worth the trek and the calories and the hype.
I ordered strawberry balsamic black pepper ice cream in a cup (I had enjoyed a waffle cone the day before at another ice creamery).
You’ll get the familiar fruity flavor of the strawberry with an acidic zing from the balsamic vinegar. At the end a wee bit of spice from black pepper but not enough to cancel out the other flavors. WHAT KIND OF SORCERY IS THIS?
Delicious ice cream sorcery. That’s what.
