Deep-Fried Avocado = Love

Posted by on March 1 2012 in Bacon, Cheese, Fowl, Pig, Restaurants, Sandwich, Trends

It’s no secret that we love avocado here at Endless Simmer. We also love ridiculous fried things. Hell, we’ve even attempted a marriage of the two, although the results were not pretty. As a dedicated ESer and food lover, I’m always on the lookout for yet more avocado creations to embrace, and I just experienced something that will forever change the way I look at sandwiches.

At Gourmands in East Austin, sandwiches are king. And by “king” I mean “GIGANTIC.” I took a chance on my arteries and ordered the Second Deadly Sin:┬áSmoked turkey, bacon, swiss, fried avocado, sprouts, and pesto.

Yes, fried avocado!!! See that crispy, brown thing in the bottom left corner of my mountain of sandwich? FRIED AVOCADO.

I know it might not look like much from this picture, but I assure you, this is a thing of wonder. The best qualities of fried shit: crisp texture, warmth, salty grease — combined with the best of avocado: creamy, cool richness. Smashed onto a ton of meat. What’s not to love?! I hope more restaurants jump on this bandwagon.

    I love grilled avocado. It adds complexity. So why not fried?

    I have seen DFA pop up on a few menus recently, and have been wondering how they do that!

    Holy Mama-I’m so going to copy cat this in my kitchen, love avocaodos. Fried? In a high stacking sandwich? Yes, PUH-LEASE!!

    BS, I thiiiink it was panko fried? It was definitely a light and crispy coating, not a thickly breaded one. If anyone could copycat it, it’s our bakersroyale!!

    (Is it wrong that I’m dreaming of some sort of fried avocado/fried ice cream combo? A sweet-salty frozen dessert type of thing?)

    I have never heard of anything so un-wrong in my life
