Mr Avocado: Exotic fruit juice

I know what you are thinking of when i mentioned hawker centre stalls, plain, boring, unfanciful, the run-of-the-mill look! But recently food lovers are spoil with more options as more food & beverage owners look to “attack” the heartlands, the place where you and I grew up in. Botak Jones, Cilantro are some of the better-known names to “invade” our familiar neighbourhood.

Putting that aside, Mr Avocado isn’t exactly “new”, they have been around since 1990, and participated in the Singapore Food Festival 2003, 2004. Well just that last time i didn’t really keep an eye for good food, so i only came to know its existence after a friend recommended me there.

They are not called Mr Avocado for nothing, the avocado being their signature drink is surely a must-order drink when you are here. Although i am not a fan of avocado, but Mr Avocado’s rendition win me over with its smooth, creamy and milky interpretation.

Avocado fruits contain a high concentration of dietary fiber, vitamins and potassium. And definitely makes a good drink on a hot day. Mr Avocado’s tagline is “exotic fruit juice”. With some of their specialty like dragon fruit, wintermelon, waterchestnut, loh han kuo, soursop, aloe vera, white fungus definitely sounds more exotic than your usual watermelon, apple, orange.

And i noticed the fact that within Alexandra village hawker centre there are at least four fruit drink stalls selling almost identical drinks. My guess is the hawker centre is always crowded with the office folks working nearby coming in for lunch, and you know fruit juice is always a pleaser for the ladies.

I actually prefer the fruit juice stall which is located nearer the center and along the same row. But I think both are delicious but I’ve recently noticed that it’s alot more ice than milkshake. At least it’s still 2 bucks.

Michelles last blog post..Ember

yeah. the stall beside the bak kut teh stall serves better avocado juice and they used to serve it with whiskey. it really taste OUT OF THE WORLD… but they were complained as they do not have liquor license. i wondered who will complain when the drink is so nice!

Sad to say, the first time I had my avocado drink there, both me and hubby had stomach ache. Since then, we didn’t dare to order any more avocado drinks. It was until recently I start to make my own. So far so good. lol

Michelle: yeah i saw that store, but the name mr avocado made me go for this one instead. lol

johnson: oic, so do that still serve it with whiskey?

didally: ah, i din have any stomachache yet. lol! make-your-own is always better, can add whatever you want. haha

jacelyn: really? you requested for brown sugar?

they dont serve with whiskey due to the complains. anyway, avocado juice taste a little like brown sugar. the stall doesnt add brown sugar to it.

I hv always loved avocado but was pleasently surprised when my sisters-in-law recommended me avocado drink – it’s yum. My guess is milk, sugar and ice is also added into blender just like orange julius.

Hi ladyironchef. (:

I’m a mass comm student from ngee ann polytechnic and I’m currently writing an article for my magazine. My article is on the different uses of avocados and I chanced upon your blog while researching. I think the stall Mr Avocado would be a credible source for my artcle however I need to interview the owner and I was just wondering if you know his name and contact number.

Hey, I chance upon another stall that is a branch off from Mr Avocado, it’s called “Avocado Jr, from Alexandra Village”, located at Golden Mile Food Centre B1-46… it taste as good and they also selling it at the same price :) so we all have another location for all the yummy Avocado Milkshake lovers!
