I’m not an “ice cream” kind of girl. I’m more of the “coffee and cookies” type. After lunch at Morimoto, we went to Oxbow Public Market for my coffee from Ritual Roasters. I only wanted coffee but Kit knew my weakness for anything ‘chocolate orange‘ and he let me try the ice cream he bought.
Funny but Kit and Ariel haven’t been to Oxbow Public Market in all the times they’ve visited Napa Valley. So it was a first time for all of us.
Three Twins ice cream was right across Ritual Coffee Roasters.
While I was waiting for my coffee to finish dripping, Kit bought a scoop of chocolate orange confetti and let me try a spoonful. I tried it without knowing what flavor it was.
As soon as the ice cream hit my tongue I moaned in ecstasy. It was the most intense chocolate flavor with the most intense and sharpest orange flavor in the richest, creamiest ice cream I’ve ever eaten. EVER!!! Forget my diet. As soon as I finished my coffee I immediately bought a scoop all for myself. Even Ariel couldn’t stop raving about my ice cream since he bought strawberry while Kit was more adventurous with his ‘dad’s cardamom’ ice cream. My chocolate orange confetti was the best!!!
True to their claim, Three Twins Ice Cream was inconceivably delicious!

We walked around Oxbow Market while eating ice cream and I took pictures of the stores and eateries there.
Kit said these lemon pita chips were really good.
I really liked the mix of tenants in Oxbow Market. Ca’ Momi occupied a big space since it had wine, pizza and Italian pastries all in one store.
After taking a picture of these tempting sweets I quickly walked away to avoid temptation.
Right after walking away from Italian pastries I walked next to Anette’s Chocolates and hyperventilated for a few minutes.
Some of the stores in Oxbow can be also found at San Francisco’s Ferry Building that’s because the founder of Oxbow used to be the project manager of the Ferry Building.

I saw compost bins in several places in the US. A lot of their food containers just like the ones we used at Addendum are compostable. I’m sure those containers are expensive so I don’t think we’ll see those in the Philippines any time soon. But composting of food waste is something we can do right now.
We were pressed for time since we still had two wineries to go to before going back to San Francisco. I’ll definitely go back to Oxbow Public Market so I can walk leisurely, try some cheese and olive oil, buy a cup of coffee and two scoops of chocolate orange confetti ice cream.
