Tartine Manufactory Blood orange sorbet and cardamom soft serve: Tartine Manufactory closes its bakery section, including soft serve, for dinner service, but if you ask nicely, they will serve it (as I found out last night). This swirl of blood orange and cardamom was one of the best things I ate all year, with potently spiced cardamom and sharp citrus. The texture was smooth and consistent. Often, independent flavors in swirled soft serve compete and don’t quite work in harmony, but this unexpected combination was both balanced and even better with one another. If I had to be picky, I wished the blood orange was just a tad less sweet. The small size was extremely generous and a bargain at SF rates ($3.50). I’m not sure how long this seasonal flavor will be available, but try it while it lasts! 4.5/5.0
