Petite Impossible Burger with Guac and Pepper Jack Cheese – $8.00

While rather tasty, this slider is rather small for the price. It’s also not that inventive – I’ve had guac on a burger many times. There are many other great dishes at the festival we’d recommend, but if you just have to eat a burger, you could do worse we suppose.

This slider is still just as tasty as last year, but too small for the price. The concept of guac on a burger is not very new or inventive, so we were bummed to see this on the menu yet again. But if you find yourself really craving a burger during the Festival, this one still gets the job done.

Spiced Roasted Chicken on Pita with Avocado Hummus and Garlic Sauce – $7.50

This item is almost identical to last year, except for one huge change—the Oumph has been replaced with chicken. Unfortunately, this did not make the dish taste any better. The dish is tiny and we were shocked by its size when we received it. The pita bread was tough and impossible to cut through with a plastic knife and fork. And as much as we love garlic, this dish had way too much of it.

Kombucha Mojito Cocktail with Fresh Mint – $13.50

If a mojito is your cocktail of choice, then this drink will suit you just fine. This item was the real winner of Avocado Time. It was light and refreshing, with barely a taste of alcohol in each sip (which likely makes this a little dangerous). The mint wasn’t overpowering, so even guests who aren’t mojito fans will enjoy drinking this. To be honest, we didn’t get much of a kombucha taste, but that didn’t make us enjoy this any less. We would definitely come back for this cocktail again and again.

Suja Organic Pineapple Passionfruit Kombucha (non-alcoholic) – $6.00

If you still want your kombucha kick for the day without the added alcohol, you can opt for this Suja drink instead. The pineapple and passionfruit flavors give us happy, tropical feelings.
