While we were in Portland last week we hit up Salt & Straw at their new location. We had never been, but heard great things about their inventive ice cream flavors from friends. Oh, and from some woman named Oprah. So, we knew we had to try it (plus they serve Stumptown so they're legit in my book). The lines for this place were massive so I'd say they are doing pretty well.
In true Portland style, all the ice cream is handmade with local and organic ingredients and their flavor options are pretty unique. Example? Strawberry balsamic and black pepper. Pepper. In ice cream. I know, right?
We went with friends and sampled a few flavors before we made our choices. Lance went with half Oprah's favorite flavor (olive oil) and half dandelion sorbet. I chose half pear & blue cheese and half sea salt with caramel ribbons. And the verdict was...delicious! So good, we even went back the next day with Lance's parents.
What's the most exciting ice cream flavor you've had? Does anywhere besides Portland have such places?!
