My favorite food right now is stuffed avacados. Yes, they are ridiculously heavy, fatty, greasy, cheesy and I can't eat them very often. But I love them. I've decided to try them at as many places as I can find them. So far I've had Trudy's and Maudie's.
Maudie's is served as a salad. The avacado is chopped and mixed with shrimp with a creamy cheesy sauce, then poured back into the avacado shell and over a bed of lettuce. I had it with a chicken soft taco and a margarita. With tip and all, about $17. It was ok, but not exactly what I was looking for.
Trudy's was what I was looking for. Whole avacado stuffed with chicken, deep fried, then covered in sauce.. I got the queso. Disgusting and heavenly at the same time. Of course, I loved it. It's certainly not high class food, but oh so good.
Where else in Austin have you seen them on the menu? Are they common to the Mexican restaurants?
