"Rick's Rather Rich Ice Cream" ...Palo Alto

Haven't heard mention of this place for a few years...has anyone been recently?...Opinions...?

Rick's Rather Rich Ice Cream
3946 Middlefield Road, Palo Alto, California
Do not for a moment believe the name of this 1958-vintage ice cream parlor. True, Rick's sorbets may be only "rather rich;" but the ice creams are plenty prosperous. Exotic flavors rule in the congenial parlor decorated with paintings of cows, but even "Rick-o-Mendations" such as White Chocolate Ginger and Saffron Pistachio engulf you foremost with their creaminess. For us, the most compelling flavor in the house is chocolate ginger, but it's hard not to explore such rarities as Kulfi (saffron and pistachios), Computer Chip (chocolate chips in chocolate-orange ice cream), and Industrial Chocolate (fudge and cookie dough).
