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

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

        1. 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 like their Black Sesame and Jackfruit.

              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:
