An oldie but a goodie: Avocado Tree
We’re not gonna lie, we’ve got a soft spot for good Tex-Mex. Avocado Tree was founded on the idea that healthy food can be simple, handcrafted, and most importantly, affordable. In the U.S. you won’t find any (authentic) Tex-Mex joint that costs an arm and a leg. It’s comfort food; and one of the requirements for that is affordability. It’s your drunken munchie food, your hangover cure, your post workout snack, and your quick lunch. It needs to be affordable whenever the mood strikes.
Beijing’s original burrito counter still offers the same classic flavors with your choice of protein and whatever you want to add into your burrito. Still making all their ingredients from scratch, Avocado Tree uses zero canned food, which means no undisclosed sugar or sodium (we’re talking those beans). Choose from chicken (¥28), barbacoa (¥36), carnitas (¥28), and our personal favorite, their vegetarian (¥33) burrito that’s bursting with avocados and leaves you full and satisfied without feeling heavy.
It’s not just burritos that are available here. You can make your own burrito bowl, salad, quesadilla, and tacos the same way; with fresh ingredients in the proportions you want. Our new favorites are the over-stuffed quesadillas they’ve just added to the menu. We’re especially fans of their chunky homemade guacamole (¥15). And when we say chunky, we mean it. There are literally big cubes of perfectly ripe avocados in every bite. While some may like a finer purée, we prefer chunks that are more bang for the buck.
Add in a bit of guilty pleasure to your healthy Tex-Mex and order up a frozen margarita (¥29). Affordable and delicious is how Avocado Tree’s been doing it all these years, and it’s how they’re gonna stay.
