    The best avocado dish I've had....

    halved and skinned, with a shrimp and seafood mixture put in the hole, then covered with cheese and broiled...

    Easy to make at home as well....

    Avacados are great food healthwise. The problem is that they are very expensive. Is there a less expensive way or source here in Thailand?

    Yes, it was clear from the pic that a bun, burger and fries weren't involved, so that could only really leave one thing.

    I cook with Avocado oil, very good it is too.
    Excellent for shallow frying, cooks well at high temperatures.

    $300K off of selling hot avocados. That's some coin.

    But....book 'em Danno!



    Holy guacamole!

    Workers pilfered $300,000 worth of avocados, police say

    The glorious avocado — known for its pebbly armored skin, succulent green flesh and soaring price — is enjoying a global surge in popularity of late.

    Whether it’s the featured ingredient in an outrageously priced serving of avocado toast or the culprit in a sudden increase in avocado-cutting hand injuries, one thing is clear: People are crazy about the heart-healthy fruit.

    In fact, authorities say that growing popularity could have driven three workers from an Oxnard-based produce company to pilfer $300,000 worth of avocados recently.

    “They are in demand. Everybody loves avocados,” said Sgt. John Franchi of the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office.

    Carlos Chavez, 28, of Oxnard; Rahim Leblanc, 30, also of Oxnard; and Joseph Valenzuela, 38, of Santa Paula, were arrested Wednesday on suspicion of grand theft of avocados, the Sheriff’s Office said. It is unclear how many pounds were stolen.

    “We take these kinds of thefts seriously,” Franchi said. “It’s a big product here and in California.”

    Authorities think the men were stealing and selling avocados to unsuspecting customers for at least several months, Franchi said. In late May, sheriff’s detectives launched an investigation into allegations the men were receiving cash for the stolen avocados, he said.
