Even with its expansion to Capitol Hill delayed, the cult ice cream shop Salt & Straw is already eyeing a second location in Ballard.

The Portland based company will open in the historic Glenn J. Twigg building, 5420 Ballard Ave. N.W., by winter, a spokeswoman said.

Salt & Straw, which also has a big fan base in Los Angeles and San Francisco, is known for collaborating with big-name chefs including  Tom Douglas (There’s an ice cream version of Dahlia’s Lounge’s famous triple coconut cream pie.) as well as for concocting some wacky combos including a fish sauce flavored ice cream.
