A couple of weeks ago, the family and I were walking around the Inner Sunset after visiting the San Francisco Botanical Garden when we came across San Francisco’s Hometown Creamery. We weren’t even a little bit hungry because we’d just had some not so great Indian food (wah-wah), but we stepped inside of this new-to-us ice cream shop to scout it out for future reference.
Well, when a place offers a smidge sized cone how can you resist? The answer is: you can’t. After taste testing a variety of flavors we all got ourselves a smidge of something or other. Later I found out that that the gracious young man who scooped our ice cream is Saadi Halil, who owns and operates the place along with his brother Adar.
There is a sign that takes up most of one wall inside the creamery that reads, “SFHC is the only creamery in San Francisco to make small batch ice cream completely from scratch on-site.” Cool, I thought at the time, but honestly I don’t know much about makin’ ice cream so it didn’t really mean anything other than someone’s makin’ ice cream up in this place until I checked out their website and read the following:
WE ARE THE CLOSEST “FROM FARM TO CONE” AS IT GETS. WE TAKE NO SHORT-CUTS. AS LICENSED PASTEURIZERS, WE ARE UNSHACKLED FROM WORKING WITH A PRE-MADE ICE CREAM BASE AND HAVE ABSOLUTE CONTROL OVER RICHNESS, TEXTURE, CONSISTENCY AND FLAVOR. WE PRIDE OURSELVES ON BEING INVOLVED ALONG EVERY STEP OF THE WAY AS WE TAKE INDIVIDUAL AND PRINCIPALLY LOCAL, RAW INGREDIENTS AND TURN THEM INTO DELICIOUS AND UNIQUE ICE CREAMS.
Nice! Gotta love their commitment, dedication and attention to their craft.
