Today is National Guacamole Day, so if you’re looking to get your avocado fix, here are six excellent places for guac here in Indianapolis that Indy Maven’s editorial team has personally tried and enjoyed.
“BEST GUACAMOLE IN TOWN” FROM FESTIVA
With a name on like “Best Guacamole in Town,” Festiva’s offering has a lot of live up to, but thankfully, it delivers. Loaded with ripe avocados, onion, garlic, and lime juice, it also has thinly sliced jicama, pomegranate seeds, pumpkin seeds, and fresh cilantro and diced serrano peppers on top. Pro tip: If you’re not a fan of heat, skip the serranos, because they really pack a punch. The dish is listed as “market price” on the menu, but when we ordered it this week, it was $11.
GUACAMOLE AND CHIPS FROM PUBLIC GREENS
Like everything that Martha Hoover is involved with, the guacamole at Public Greens in Broad Ripple is absolutely delicious. A classic preparation that is served with tortilla chips, the guac is studded with onion and tomato, is vegan and gluten free, and is currently priced at $6.
GUACAMOLE TRIO FROM VERDE, FLAVORS OF MEXICO
If variety is your jam, consider splurging on three flavors of guac by ordering the $16 Guacamole Trio at Verde, Flavors of Mexico in Fishers. You’ll get to try spicy pineapple, chicharrón morita, and traditional versions of the dip, and they come with fresh chicharróns (similar to pork rinds) for scooping — but there are also always tortilla chips on hand as well.
GUACAMOLE AND CHIPS FROM REVOLUCION
You may be a fan of Revolucion’s tacos and Mission-style burritos — and the delightful tiki bar out back — but you should definitely also order the guac and chips for $6.95 to enjoy while you’re indulging in the Fountain Square spot’s inventive drinks. Made in-house, it has diced onions and tomatoes and a dash of black pepper.
CHIPS AND GUACAMOLE FROM BAKERSFIELD
Bakersfield on Mass Ave serves up Mexican street fare with flair, along with an array of killer margaritas. Their chips and guacamole are $9 and are the perfect starter for any of their delicious tacos.
