Mango-jasmine sorbet at Mitchell's [SF]

Dave MP | Oct 11, 2012 02:43 PM

Last night I was at Mitchell's for the first time in quite a while. I had the mango-jasmine sorbet, which was very good. The texture was very smooth, and the flavors were bold—lots of mango at the beginning (though not overly sweet), followed by a floral jasmine after-taste. I'd definitely get this again.

I sampled the lucuma. Nice creamy, fruit flavor, which almost tastes like butterscotch. Not as good as lucuma ice cream that I used to eat in Chile, but better than I remember Mitchell's being (last time I tried it was probably 5 years ago).

Meanwhile, one of my ice-cream-companions had the buko (young coconut) which was worse than I remembered. Too sweet, too milky, not enough pure coconut taste (in my opinion).

Also sampled pumpkin (lots of spice flavor, like a strong pumpkin pie) and kahlua mocha cream (which was very good if you're into kahlua flavored ice cream).

Prices are reasonable, lines aren't too bad now that it's autumn.....still definitely worth a visit.
