I’ve had Kurt Farm Shop on my list of ice cream places to try for a long time now. Well, we finally were in the ‘hood so after lunch, we decided to check them out. First time I’ve seen an ice cream and cheese shop combined into one.
They’re located inside Chophouse Row which houses a variety of shops, bars and restaurants.
We dropped in on a Sunday afternoon (around 1:00pm) and arrived to an empty ice cream shop. The inside is tiny but there are half a dozen stools outside to sit at. Service was average with a young guy working alone. He let us try a few flavours but wow, they were dinky little samples.
There were a dozen ice cream flavours available along with cheese and salami available for purchase.
The mole salami intrigued me but way too pricey in my books ($11.95 US).
One scoop is $4.00 US and a double $6.95 US.
Double scoop ($6.95 US)
We decided on rosemary and lemon verbena. I’m a sucker for anything herb related in my ice cream. Rosemary was enjoyable but a tad too subtle. B picked the lemon verbena which again, could have been tangier and bolder in lemon flavour.
The scoops were eye poppingly small. The texture was okay but I was expecting a satisfying thick, creamy bite.
The interesting flavours is what originally peaked my interest in KFS but that was it. Still on the lookout for a go to ice cream spot.
