Favorite Ice Cream?

What's the consensus on favorite ice cream in SF? I've tried Humphry Slocombe and Bi-Rite, haven't made it to Mitchell's yet. Any other places I should check out?

I've got this one. Garlic ice cream made fresh at "The Stinking Rose" restaurant!

Three Twins is also good. And there's some new-er place on Valencia st called Xanath that's supposed to have some interesting vanilla flavors. But IMO you won't get any better than Bi-Rite, unless you make it yourself.

Love Bi-Rite, but also have to give another vote to Humphry Slocombe. Red Hot Banana FTW!

There's a place in Berkeley called Ici on college ave that has the best IMO. they make it fresh daily and they're always experimenting with flavors. plus, don't skimp on their handrolled cones, which may be even better than their ice cream

Mitchell's out in the Mission is my favorite. If you're in the East Bay be sure to check out Fenton's in Oakland! Fentons Creamery and Restaurant

Mitchell's is still my favorite. Their Grasshopper Pie ice cream is awesome.

Buds on 24th and Castro is my favorite (just cause I grew up one block away).

Out of the city the best is The Fairfax Scoop
Fairfax Scoop - Fairfax, CA

Vanilla Honey Lavender, yum!

Another vote for Mitchels

Tuckers in Alameda isn't bad either; and of coarse there's always Fentons in Oakland
