$100 Avocado Toast

With Millennials obsessed with photographing and posting all they eat to social media, they're going broke keeping up with the "My Avocado Toast is better than yours" trend.


The Cost of Avocado Toast, Explained by a Restaurateur

It’s not really about the avocados
by Ellen Fort@ellenfork May 23, 2017, 10:53am PDT


Over the past few years, avocado toast has gained a high profile, from an avocado-only restaurant in New York to the most recently horrifying “avolatte” phenomenon. It’s why Millennials can’t buy homes. It’s the death of San Francisco food culture. It’s the devil on toast. Somewhere along the way, the buttery fruit that is so deliciously slathered on toast across America, got a real bad rap for being trendy, and expensive.

But really, it’s not about the avocados.

The bourgeois treat is, however, a great example of the hidden costs of menu items, and the cost of running a business with super-slim margins (e.g. a restaurant). The Bay Area is no stranger to fancy toast, avocados or not. But prices in restaurants are rising nationwide, particularly in cities like San Francisco, Los Angeles, Washington, DC, and New York City. It’s a tricky combination of the cost of living, foreign policy, trade policy, labor shortages, and even more factors beyond the control of restaurant operators.

Best avocados I’ve ever had come from Hawaii! They are round and the size of a softball. One of the highest fat content you can get in avocados.

$100 Avocado toast? You would have to be a dumbass to spend that on a piece of toast with avocado spread on it.

On the Island of Kauai there are several road side produce stands and one in particular had the HUGE avocado's they were like small footballs, bigger than a softball, ONE would make a complete meal for the wife and I, and they were 2.00 bucks at that stand, also were organic according to the sign and the taste is NOTHING like normal type, We have been hooked ever since and of course not available here in the states. We still laugh every time we purchase regular avocado's as they look so puny!

Exactly..

But, $75 would be okay with most Millennials in SF. V6sRZf4

The SF techies buy really expensive analog watches..really flashy stuff $10-20k, and, they can't tell the time on an analog watch. If you ask them the time, the pull out their smart phone for a digital delivery. A local TV station did a "man on the street" showing these idiots with really expensive watches, who couldn't read them. Every time they were asked the time, the phone came out.

I have no sympathy for these Millennial dults.

Living beyond your means is the motto of most Millennial's and you see it broadcast all the time on TV ads and such, of course they use different verbiage but it has that meaning.

I have found for myself that i don't enjoy any type of expensive meal in a restaurant as i will 99% of the time be disappointed in the quality and taste of the food, I/We have perfected a quality of certain dishes that are fantastic and there fore normally IF i have to eat in a restaurant I choose only cheaper simple dishes, Steak is a prime example I know how to pick out a great steak in the market place (IF you can find one) and then I know how to cook it in a manner I like.

It's all about posting "lifestyle" photos on social media.
