San Francisco’s Salt and Straw stable continues to grow, as the Portland-based ice cream shop prepares to open its second SF location in Hayes Valley (586 Hayes Street) on October 20. On opening day, both the Hayes Valley and Fillmore locations will donate 15 percent of profits to relief efforts via the Redwood Credit Union’s North Bay Fire Relief fund and Farmer’s Guild.

The company, founded by cousins Tyler and Kim Malek, has long sourced its products from farms local to their shops, including Los Angeles and Portland. The resulting 17 flavors featured in the SF shops are a mix of classics like a Sightglass Coffee and Dandelion Chocolate flavor, and the vegan Teranga baobab juice and coconut (from La Cocina alum Nafy Flatley) and seasonal flavors.

Most recently, a bone marrow and smoked cherry flavor joined the list of curiosity-provoking flavors; now the particularly inventive October menu will launch along with the Hayes Valley shop. Check it out, with descriptions, below:

Essence of Ghost
Allison Jones

The Great Candycopia
Salted butterscotch ice cream with homemade snickers, whoppers, heath bars, and peanut butter cups

Dracula’s Blood Pudding
Spices and cream cooked into actual blood pudding

Essence of Ghost
A grey sherbet with flavors described as “bitter, sweet and slightly musky”

Creepy Crawly Critters
Chocolate-covered crickets and coconut toffee brittle-covered mealworms folded into matcha ice cream

Freckle and Hyde Potion
Cranberry sorbet spotted with dark chocolate, and a bitter melon coconut sherbet with coconut ash-coated pop rocks

Keep an eye out next week for some neighborhood pop-ups before opening, all of which will benefit fire relief. Both locations will be open from 11 a.m. – 11 p.m. seven days a week.
