The Avocado Tree opened a branch today beside Home Plate BBQ — on the food street a block behind Kro’s Nest on Xiaoyan Road — and drew a large crowd for its first lunch. Tacos start at rmb12, while both burrito bowls and salads start at rmb26 — click the photos below for the menu.
I had the steak taco (rmb28) with cilantro-lime rice, black beans, corn, salsa, cheese and hot sauce, on a soft shell, and found the ingredients fresh and tasty. A word of warning: the hot sauce lives up to its name.
As for beverages, sodas are rmb6, tea is rmb8, Yanjing draft is rmb 12 and Corona is rmb18.
The Avocado Tree also has branches in Shunyi and Wudaokou, although manager Chelsea says the latter will close. Anyway, given the prices, the outdoor seating and the proximity to Home Plate BBQ, The Avocado Tree provides another reason for heading to this part of town.
