Fresh Guacamole?

Yes! You can get fresh guacamole at the fair, and it is to die for!  Senior Garcia’s makes fresh guac while you watch, not only watch but pick your own flavor.

This is one of the funniest things I have done at the fair this year.  Earlier in the week I had noticed the sign for guacamole, so I tasted for myself yesterday.  After you order, the avocado is cut and smooshed in an pedestal with a mortar, after the avocado is smooth cilantro,  tomato, onion and special seasoning is added to your liking.  The guac is served with a giant helping of chips and lots of very friendly service.  I took a video, unfortunately it is to large to upload, please stop by and give it a try for yourself.

Loved this – I highly recommend!
