Salt & Straw spotlights fresh, local ingredients in hand crafted, small batch ice cream. To call cousins, Kim and Tyler Malek’s flavors “inventive” would be an understatement. Salt & Straw changes flavors every four weeks to tell a story of what’s happening in the local artisan, farm and chef communities. These collaborations often result in unique and unbelievably good flavors like Pear with Blue Cheese, Bone Marrow & Bourbon Smoked Cherries, or Strawberry Honey Balsamic with Black Pepper. Salt & Straw has three shops in Portland – NE Alberta, NW 23rd and SE Division.
