We haven’t been able to enjoy our favorite cardamom and masala ice cream cone for weeks, and since we’re still in the middle of one of our typical mid-November heatwaves, we decided to see what was up. Mission Local reported a while back that the city had closed the shop on the basis of a few minor health violations and some water damage. Now, Mission Local is reporting that Bombay Bazar and Ice Creamery packed up most of their stuff and is moving out.
I took a peek through their window to see what was the deal and was greeted by this scene of carnage. It’s difficult to miss the gaping hole in the ceiling, which was probably a result of all the water damage that got them originally. We surely can’t be the only ones bummed about this. Where are we going to find five year old bottles of tahini now? And what about that wonderfully inexpensive all-you-can-eat Indian buffet (and did any of you ever end up trying it)? I can only assume that Bi-Rite and Humphrey Slocum are somehow behind this . . .
