“The 2 pounds of guacamole ordered went so fast” 5☆ Yelp Review

Last night we received another terrific review on Yelp, check it out:

“I have used SOHO TACO twice in the last 2 months for catering because they are that good! Selene Noonan was so helpful with any questions or changes I made and the food was so delicious! Everyone kept asking me where the food was from and how much they loved it. The 2 pounds of guacamole ordered went so fast. Thank you so much for your professionalism, follow-up and delicious food. We will definitely be back!!”
– 5☆ Yelp Review by Brooke L., of #CostaMesa CA (October 26, 2017)

Thanks for the wonderful feedback, Brooke! Hearing from past customers is a great way to assess areas that need improvement and strengthen the parts where we excel.

In her review, Brooke mentioned that her guests really enjoyed the Salsa de Guacamole so much that they gobbled it up quickly. And, it’s no wonder. This condiment is easily one of our most popular items on the menu and it’s absolutely delightful.

Guacamole is a colorful and delicious addition to any condiments and salsa table.

Before we get into how we make this exquisite complement to our tacos let’s go over some guacamole facts!

Did you know that the Aztecs referred to guacamole as “ahuaca-mulli”? Sounds kind of like “guacamole”, right? Well, that translates roughly to avocado sauce or avocado mixture. In fact, the Aztecs believed the avocado to be an aphrodisiac. Another reason for the popularity of the fruit was the fact that the avocado has the highest fat content of any fruit, something you can easily appreciate in the creamy texture. (Source)

To make our version of this ancient classic we start out with avocados at their peak of ripeness. Now, in case you didn’t know fresh avocados do not ripen on the tree. In fact, they ripen or “soften” after they have been harvested which can be anywhere from 2 to 3 days, depending on many factors including climate, breed and handling. Although the fruit’s skin color can help in the visual selection of the fresh avocados it is not always the best way to determine ripeness.

Round & round she goes, where she stops nobody knows.

Usually, the best way to know if it’s ripe is to quickly touch for softness. And, the trick is to time it correctly so when it’s time to make the salsa, the fruit is at its peak.

So, once our chefs determine they’re good and ready, we peel large batches in our kitchen and mash up the flesh in a large bowl. From there we add our vine ripened tomatoes, spicy red onions and our special blend of herbs and spices.

Our salsa de guacamole was the leader of the pack the the wedding that we catered last month in Santa Barbara CA.

The result is a luxuriously creamy salsa that goes terrific with almost any of our extensive line of tacos, especially bold flavored items like our savory carne asada or our rich al pastor. Or, you can even just scoop up a dollop on a tortilla chip and enjoy it as is. So good!

Hopefully we’ll get the chance to serve some to you soon so you can taste for yourself what Brooke enjoyed and hopefully you too will agree that it’s 5☆ worthy as well.

¡Buen provecho!
