      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 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:
