wikipedia.org/wiki/bubble_tea

It says that in the US it's in trendy parts of the west coast... but I live in a blue collar neighborhood in Chicago.

Hop on over to Chinatown. That is actually where I experienced bubble tea for the first time. That is, where I first learned of my deep-seated disgust for it. All experiences since have done nothing but confirm that first impression. The texture makes me nauseous.

As for avocados, cut in half, eaten with a spoon, a little seasoning or just salt. Perfect for lunches.

Coconut Milk Tea with coconut lychee jelly is what I was introduced to bubble tea with, and it's all I drink; I get some as much as possible in summer, nom nom nom!


Avocado is good a number of ways:

1. Chicken schnitzel with avocado, semi-dried tomato and melted cheese on top,
2. Three layer dip - mashed avocado, salsa (normally mild, but that's because I am a wuss) and sour cream layered on top of each other. Favourites at parties! Looks pretty gross after a few people have had some, though.
3. uh, I'm sure I'll think of more later

I've always liked avocado, but a few months ago I became almost obsessed with it. It's now my favourite edible green thing.

Guacamole's nice, but my preferred method is to just cut the avocado in half, fill it with something a bit salty and/or sour (like salted/smoked roe) and munch it up with a spoon. Yummy yummy texture <3 best appetizer, snack, and meal.

I never really got the thing about bubble tea... those tapioca balls kept distracting me from enjoying the experience.

I kind of wish the pearls in bubble tea had flavor, but I guess it isn't meant to be like Gummy Bear tea, but you know what, that would be awesome if it was.

I was once served rice pilaf in half an avocado.  It was excellent.

I am going to agree with everyone who has praised guacamole, and especially the people who recognize how incredible it is on (in my case veggie) burgers.

Guacamole is the thing I make. Whenever we have fajitas or chili or stuff like that I make the guacamole. I love the stuff.
