Going to the grocery can be a tricky affair for some people and when I say some I mean me. One challenge is of course finding the exact food or ingredient needed without having to pull an E.T. and phone home. “Did you say tarragon or terrapin? Because you know one is a turtle right? It’s also the mascot of…huh? Tarragon, okay I’ll find it.”
Another challenge is the price, there are a lot of times the pricing at the grocery can be quite confusing. I mean buy 10 for $10 seems like pretty easy math but if you start getting into get 50% off when you buy 6 and 25% off when you buy 3 can start to get a little overwhelming and in many cases a calculator is a handy shopping tool.
Produce is sometimes by the pound and sometimes by the piece which can be a challenge for me. This leads me to today’s real story, one year we were invited to a party and I was going to make my previously well received guacamole.
I went to the store and got the necessary ingredients include the avocados. The avocados were on sale so I thought I would buy a few extra and make a lot of the tasty green stuff. They were on sale for $1.25 each unfortunately for me I thought it was a $1.25 per pound. I loaded up the bag with about 20 or so which weighed at about 6 pounds or so. So I get up the register and bam you should have seen my face when the total was about 15 bucks more than I thought all because I didn’t know the difference between pound and each. I bought them and had good laugh all the way home.
Avocados or aguacate in Spanish are delicious. This brings us to today’s deal $20 of food for $10 at Los Aguacates Restaurant, now with two locations. The original is in the southwest. Their newest location is on South H Street, near Belle Terrace.
Los Aguacates Restaurant is family owned and operated has some tasty treats for you. Our own Pete Tittl gave the place four stars in their first year. Of course, they make great guacamole out of their namesakes and the salsa is some of the best in town. You can also try a delicious margarita to take some of the heat off if anything gets too fiery for you.
The owners say try it you will love it, be full and happy. You can’t argue with that.
