It’s no secret I love ice cream, its one thing I can eat every day. I’m ecstatic there’s a large number of artisan ice cream makers making waves in our foodie landscape and one of them is Fog City Creamery. It is the brainchild of Edy Gamboa Liu, who worked in San Francsico, the City by the Bay a number of years and was exposed to the city’s ice cream boom headed by Humphrey Slocombe, Bi-Rite and Mr and Mrs. Miscellaneous. Tired of the rat race, she came back to the Philippines and started Fog City Creamery.
The packaging is easy on the eyes with its blue and white motif with the iconic Golden Gate Bridge alluding to its inspiration. The flavor is clearly hand written on every pint.
I got to try Fog City Creamery’s newest flavor, Ensaymada (P300/pint, P580/quart, P1110/gallon), its something I could never have imagined for an ice cream flavor. The flavor came about thru the collaboration of Edy and Chona, the maker of the BEST ensaymadas I have ever had.
Brown butter ice cream with chunks of Homemade Treasures ensaymada, what could go wrong. Lick a spoonful and you’ll taste ensaymada, rich, decadent and indulgent.
I also got to try another flavor, Banana Cream Pie (P300/pint, P580/quart, P1110/gallon), something unique which definitely intrigues my ice cream loving heart. I love the basic banana cream pie with out chocolate, which many place add and I have to say this ice cream fills my pie dreams to a T with a frosty finish. The textures is smooth and creamy with bits of graham all throughout the strong banana base.
Another flavor I got to try a bit and really enjoyed was the Sorrento (P300/pint, P580/quart, P1110/gallon), a lemon liquer ice cream I had expected to be more of a sorbet but was actually creamy ice cream with white chocolate and almonds added.
For those diabetics like my dad out there, you can still have Fog City Creamery’s ice cream with their two special ice cream flavors that use Coco Natura which has a low glycemic index. The two flavors are Espresso Almond and Butter Pecan (P300/pint, P580/quart, P1110/gallon). I already given my dad a pint of the Espresso Almond, and he’s given it the empty pint sign and asked me to order more.
For more flavors you can check out Fog City Creamery’s website. You guys should not only order Ensaymada ice cream but also check out the Homemade Treasure’s 1930’s ensaymada.
