If you too are a millennial who prefers buying avocados to buying a home, then this is the guac for you. When I lived in the US I was so into basically anywhere that made your guacamole at the table. Even though you end up paying like $12 for one avocado. It's the showmanship to it. This is not $12 though, and you can make it tableside if you want I guess.


  • 1 large ripe avocado
  • 1 Lime
  • 1/2 Red chili
  • 1/2 Tomato
  • Handful of Coriander
  • 1/4 Medium Red onion
  • 📖Method

  • Finely chop the onion into small little chunks.
  • Chop the tomato into roughly the same size, removing all watery pulp bits, you only want the flesh.
  • Finely chop red chill & keeping a few thin slices of chili for the top.
  • Separate coriander leaves and stalks. Finely chop the stalks and set the leaves aside.
  • Squeeze half a lime into a pestle and mortar, add a big pinch of the diced onions, coriander stalks, and salt and give it all a good bashing.
  • Scoop out half an avocado, and add to pestle & mortar and mash with a fork if soft enough, or pestle if not.
  • Add the other half and repeat until its all kind soft.
  • Add tomato, rest of the onion, and the coriander leaves and mix lightly with fork or spoon.
  • Give it a taste, and add more lime if you think it could do with it.
  • Top with a sprinkle of salt, coriander leaves, and chili slices.
