Thanks to a $10 for $5 coupon, I found myself at Toscanini's after work for the first time in far too long. Two pints, what to choose? Vienna Finger Cookie, of course. And the strangest flavor on the menu, of course. Salty Saffron? Tasty, but been there. Wait, what's this? Yes! Goat Cheese Rhubarb ice cream!

And it's fantastic. Very distinctively goat cheese flavored. Enough so that I actually wonder how much cream is in here. Strong lemony notes, including some peel as well as juice (I assume this balances the acidity). The rhubarb isn't as forward as the goat cheese, but provides fruitiness and balance.

An interesting comparison with the chocolate goat cheesecake I had at Za yesterday (colleague moving back to Mountain View). That wasn't nearly as goat cheesy; it was nicely chocolatey, but the chocolate masks some of the distinctive flavor of the goat cheese.

So run, don't walk, to Tosci's and try this stuff. It's the best ice cream I've had in a long time. And I like really good ice cream.
