Everything, but the kitchen sink. We've all heard of this frequently used idiom, especially when describing something or someone who tries to include as many things as possible for convenience or comfort. In fact, I'm betting that you have used it for one occasion or another. I know I have:
"Every time we go camping, it seems like my wife packs everything, but the kitchen sink." Or, "I really like your new car. It's got everything, but the kitchen sink." Or, "Your presentation during this morning's meeting was very thorough. You must have included everything, but the kitchen sink when putting it together."
Contrary to this, did you ever wonder what something would look like IF the kitchen sink was included in the mix? Well, the folks at The San Francisco Creamery Company have asked that question and answered it in a way that just boggles the mind and tempts the taste buds.
Ladies and gentleman, I give you THE KITCHEN SINK: Three sliced bananas, your choice of up to eight heaping scoops of ice creams, eight servings of toppings, mounds and mounds of whipped cream, chopped toasted almonds, and a handful of cherries. This behemoth of a sundae weighs in at about three pounds (roughly a gallon-and-a-half of ice cream), and it's held together in a custom-designed kitchen sink.
Now, I understand that it serves up to six people. However, if you are up to the challenge and would like a place on their Wall of Fame, try putting this bad boy down with no help from your friends. It has been tried, but only a few have succeeded.
Inspired by the neighborhood dime stores and pharmacies that were popular throughout the San Francisco region in the 1930s and 1940s, The San Francisco Creamery Company takes a page from the past in its look and approach. Clean lines, deep colors, marble tabletops, and vintage accents highlight a rich Victorian-styled interior. And a playful staff keeps things lively whether sharing their own personal favorites made with the finest ingredients available or talking about, you guessed it, The Kitchen Sink.
But it’s not just about the desserts, albeit they are the main attraction when stepping into the creamery. They also boast a fresh selection of soups, sandwiches, burgers, pastas, and appetizers. Our suggestion, try the crab salad sandwich made with real chunks of dungeness crab blended with mayo, lettuce and a dash of paprika.
So, as you can plainly see, there’s a little bit of everything for everyone to bring out the kid in all of us. To borrow another popular saying within our vernacular, The San Francisco Creamery Company is all that, and a bag of chips.
