Remember that tease of a Tom Douglas–Salt and Straw collaboration flavor? The ice cream version of T-Doug's famed triple coconut cream pie, which was only available in Portland?
The Salt and Straw folks just announced a second Seattle popup this Friday, September 23. No surprise, it's at Douglas's Home Remedy market at 2121 Sixth Ave and his coconut cream pie ice cream is the star of the show. The surprise will be which of Salt and Straw resident genius Tyler Malek's other creations will be available; the three additional flavors remain a mystery until tomorrow.
I tried the triple coconut cream pie flavor at Feast and I must say, it works. Even the Douglas folks were surprised how well their signature confection translates to ice cream.
Portland's most esteemed cult ice creamery will be on hand selling scoops from 11:30 to 3:30 just outside Home Remedy's entrance in the Via6 building. Douglas will be there, too. Inside, Home Remedy will also sell these four ice cream flavors by the pint, even after the popup, making it the first Salt and Straw retailer outside Portland and Los Angeles.
