During our brief respite back in Tokyo, between visiting Kyoto and Nagano, we stopped for lunch at J.S. Burgers Cafe (our favorite burger place in Japan – more on that in a future post).
As with every other place here, they have seasonal/limited time items. On this stop we just couldn’t resist trying a special side offering…fried avocado with raspberry mustard.
Imagine if you will luscious ripe avocado chunks, lightly coated with a slightly spicy rub, flash fried to form a delicately crispy outer shell and paired with a simultaneously sweet, sour, and tangy condiment. Altogether delicious…too bad it will almost certainly be long gone by the next time.
