Museum of Ice Cream San Francisco

Tea Time skipped the Color Factory, but couldn't resist the Museum of Ice Cream, located in the former Armani building at Grant and Market. We were divided into "teams" at the entrance and had to choose a team name. We were team Unicorn Ice Cream Horn. We were told we could spend as much time as we wanted at each exhibit, but also reminded that the next team couldn't enter until we all had exited each room.

There are snippets of ice cream history on the walls.

The famous Ice Cream Vault.
We wonder what toy soldiers have to do with ice cream. But they're pink.
Our first treat was a strawberry It's-It. Everything is pink in here.
Even the vintage jukebox!

You can "write" on the walls with magnetic letters.

Then eat ice cream mocha. Fortunately not all pink.
Then there's freshly-made cotton candy.

Clouds and cherries.
Followed by the Gummy Garden.

Fun Wallpaper
Next,  A Unicorn Milk Ice Cream Cone.

Followed by an opportunity to get up close and personal with a unicorn.
We didn't crawl into the mirror room, but some team members did.

Angela braved the sprinkle pool. J.K. is still trying to get the sand out of the suitcase Angela took camping on the beach in Hawaii, so she sat this one out.

There are swings to play on.
Angela won an extra cone at the ring toss game.
Choice of two flavors
Then there was the gift shop. Expensive, but so cute!

Yin Du Wonton Noodle

It was soup weather again, and we decided try another Chinatown noodle restaurant. Yin Du Wonton Noodle on Pacific Street has good reviews so we gave it a try and were not disappointed 

There's an awning, too, but I would have had to cross the street to photograph it
Tea is served in mugs, so you don't have to keep refilling tiny cups.

Beth chose No. 4, Stewed Beef Brisket & Wonton Noodle Soup.
J.K. had No. 10, B.B.Q. Pork Wonton Noodle Soup.
The menu is much more extensive than what is shown on the website.

Because the prices are low, the portions are not huge. You won't leave hungry; you just won't have leftovers for another meal.
