While this reporter generally prefers a simple, well-made vanilla or pistachio ice cream to just about any funky, unique flavor, I’ll admit that the vegan Thai Iced Tea ice cream from Curbside is a favorite. Not too sweet, with robust black tea tannins and subtle nuttiness from the coconut milk base, it is memorable for its restraint as much as for its creamy texture. Curbside’s dairy-based ice creams and soft serves are also excellent; try them in a sandwich or in a house-made waffle cone. Curbside Creamery is at 482 49th St. (at Telegraph Avenue), Oakland.
