Weird ice cream

Check out Smitten in Hayes Valley.

Top three reasons to go:

1. A strange, liquid nitrogen-using custom machine - the founder designed it herself to freeze fresh ingredients on the spot. He's called Kelvin. See below.

2. Interesting flavors. I recommend the meyer lemon. The salted caramel is also pretty special.

3. Entertainment value.  This ain't your mother's ice cream shop. Perhaps a bit pricey, at about $5 for a custom cup!  But part of that cost may be the pure entertainment value of watching them use this crazy machine ...
