The original brick & mortar Big Gay Ice Cream shop was one block from Kyo Ya, my favorite Japanese restaurant in NYC, so it was a quick walk if we felt like a Salty Pimp cone after dinner. Now, BGIC has opened their third shop right next door to my other favorite Japanese joint, Hakata Tonton, on Grove St. in the West Village! And I dig the new illustrated sign they have out front…

Salt & Straw, Portland, OR

I’d been meaning to post my remaining pics from our Portland trip, but just hadn’t gotten around to them yet as so much as come up in the interim. Then tonight we’re watching Bizarre Foods America and there was Andrew Zimmern in Portland. And there he was at a couple of the places I was going to write about here. Damn. Oh well, what can I say… the man has friends in Portland with the same great taste in food as mime! Like X-Men, Ultimate Spider-Man and Powers writer Brian Bendis, who insisted we could not leave Portland without a visit to Salt & Straw for ice cream…

Check out the crazy, incredible flavors on their menu!

Just perfect for a guy like me who prefers savory over sweet! We tried most of the menu, I must admit, and my favorites were…

Sea Salt with Caramel Ribbons

Pear with Blue Cheese (YES!)

Spicy Banana with Walnut (It had chiles in it!)

Cinnamon Snickerdoodle

I do not say this lightly… this is the best ice cream shop in the world!!
