    I can't read the article in the link....what types of flavors are you looking for?

    I think the durian ice cream at Marco Polo is sometimes pretty strong, and I really like it. I also love the guava ice cream there.

        I think the linked article has expired. Various news accounts and blogs mention these flavors:

        Ox Tongue (said to be the favorite)
        Eel
        Sea Urchin
        Horse Sashimi
        Pit Viper
        Natto
        Chicken Wing
        Caviar
        Kishimen Noodle
        Octopus
        Cheese
        Pearl (wth actual finely sliced pearl)
        Jellyfish
        Curry
        Crab
        Potato

        For those can read Japanese, this blogger created a photo montage of signs showing all the flavors:

        I once saw fish roe ice cream at Three Twins in Napa (Oxbrow Market). But their flavors aren't generally crazy.

            The durian ice cream I've had has been surprisingly low-key.
