Speaking of Pumpkin Ice Cream . . .

kaplan | Nov 2, 2003 12:46 AM

Just had Joe's Ice Cream for the first time (Geary and 17th) - excellent pumpkin is the seasonal special right now. They make all the ice cream themselves and it is quite good. Nice cinnamon spice notes in the pumpkin, great texture, yum. This is the kind of place that you really want to succeed because it is such a throwback. The owner of 24 years, Mutsuhiko I think, was very nice and explained how Joe was the original owner many years ago, then a fellow named Mike for 15 years, then him. Go try it!

Oh, by the way, we had Jang Soo BBQ for dinner with friends before the ice cream and it was great. We were so full we just had to top it off with ice cream!
