Frozen Kuhsterd Truck Mixes Up a Mission-Style Dessert 

Wednesday, Jul 31 2013

Now why didn't someone think of this sooner? Mission-based Frozen Kuhsterd food truck has come up with the ultimate neighborhood treat: the Mission Style Dynamo Donut Sandwich ($6.50).

The sandwich was the idea of Frozen Kuhsterd founder Jason Angeles, who was trying to come up with an unconventional new dessert. He was inspired by doughnut burgers; if they worked for beef, why not frozen custard?

Frozen Kuhstard started in 2011 as an underground street food vendor after Angeles was laid off from an IT job he'd held for a decade. He used the severance money to launch the business. "Frozen custard is a fresh style ice cream that is made with a higher egg yolk content and isn't inflated with ice or air like traditional ice cream," he explains. "The end result is a silky and creamier finish."

That velvetiness helps the doughnut/custard combination taste rich and concentrated without being overwhelming, more like morning coffee and doughnut interpreted through a summertime treat. The dessert starts with a custom maple-bacon doughnut from Dynamo Donuts (made with no hole), split in half, then filled with a soft slab of frozen custard infused with a jolt of Four Barrel Coffee, and topped with a dose of burnt caramel sauce.

The whole concoction is topped with bacon fat-sautéed apples and crisp bacon that add the perfect salty accent. It's not as intensely sweet as you would imagine, but it's just as heavy it sounds.

    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
