Avocado is one of the healthiest fruits (not a vegetable) around. Known for being high in healthy fats (monounsaturated fatty acids), this tasty and creamy green vessel is also ripe with Vitamin B, C, E, K, folate, and fiber. It is even higher in potassium than a banana. Avocados are good for the heart, eyes, joints, and all-around health. That’s why it is a key ingredient in this list of healthy meals in Yaletown Vancouver. But let’s get one thing straight. For all of the tremendous health benefits of adding avocado to your diet, one of the biggest selling points is that it simply tastes GREAT! That’s why VanCity diners (and visitors) are on the hunt for a restaurant that serves dishes where avocado is an important ingredient. And so, you’ve come to the right place.
Three Salsa & Agave Dishes that Fans of the Avocado will Love
Nachos and Guacamole
The fastest way to get to a hearty helping of avocado? By ordering a bowl our guacamole with your nachos. You won’t find a better companion for your superfood (avocado), as our Killer Nachos are Vancouver-famous. Imagine a pile of crisp nacho chips, towering with cheddar cheese, beans, jalapeño peppers, pico de gallo, fresh homemade sour cream and topped with feta cheese. All of this is exquisitely complemented by a healthy dose of guacamole to scoop.
Our kitchen treats avocado as more than a garnish when it comes to enchiladas. It is an integral part of the main event on this popular lunch dish. Our special enchiladas are delicious, with chicken rolled in a corn tortilla, covered in a delicately spiced red sauce, sprinkled with cheese, drizzled with fresh sour cream, and royally crowned with thick-sliced avocado. The meal is accompanied by refried beans and Mexican rice. Oh-so good!
One of the most popular items on our entire menu is our famous Azteca Soup. Our fresh avocado is a big part of what gives this appetizer or meal-complement so much VanCity foodie cred. This is our house tortilla soup that comes with a chipotle kick (without being too intense for sensitive palates). It is accented by melted cheese, sour cream, and the highlight of this article – avocado. The Azteca Soup is found on our Mexican Specialties menu, but is often also included on our daily specials along side rolled tacos, burritos, and more. Follow and check in on our Facebook page daily to find out when this avocado-rich soup is included on our specials.
