9 Ice Cream Trends San Francisco Needs Right Now

No one would dare argue that San Francisco has a shortage of quality ice cream trends. Over the last three years, we’ve covered San Francisco’s must-try ice cream experiences, the uniquely San Francisco ice cream flavors, the bomb ice cream sandwiches, and more. Heck, we’ve even been so bold as to declare San Francisco “a holy Mecca for ice cream.” When it comes to flavors we’re number one and lucky as hell to live here.

And the great thing about Chicago pies is we have plenty of pies to go around. Sure there are some people who claim to “hate pies” but that’s most likely because they grew up eating pies at Aunt Nancy’s house and no one liked Aunt Nancy’s pies because she constantly chain-smoked and it infused everything she baked with the flavor of Pall Mall. Save yourself from Aunt Nancy’s pies this holiday season by volunteering to bring the pie (if you’re reading this, sorry, Aunt Nancy).

Uji Time: Fish-Shaped Ice Cream Cones Available in San Francisco

You no longer need to trek to Berkeley to get picture perfect fish-shaped ice cream cone. Uji Time Desserts has quietly opened in Japantown this month and Yelp is already full of snaps of soft serve ice cream on top of fish-shaped ice cream taiyaki pastries.

Uji Time made waves in Berkeley last year when they started sharing a space with the equally Instagrammable Vampire Penguin. The perpetually long-lined Berkeley location sells more than a dozen soft serve flavors for adorning your photo friendly fish-shaped ice cream cone. The SF shop is softly opening with only a handful of flavors including the matcha, tofu, and black sesame.

In addition to soft serve, the shop is serving up a selection of adorable mochis including matcha chocolate chip, salted caramel, and ginger zing.

Uji Time Desserts has moved into the location previously occupied by Mitsu Teahouse at 22 Peache Plaza, Ste. 440.

Soft serve stuffed in taiyaki has been a growing trend across the United States. New York City has several shops serving up the Japanese pastry.
