Best Fried Surprise 

Crispy Avocado Tacos
Unforked Eats & Sweets

7337 West 119th Street, Overland Park | 913-661-9887

Now that fried mushrooms are passé, the trend in deep-fried vegetables has moved on to green beans and green tomatoes. But nothing green around here tastes more memorable out of the fryer than this meat-free taco: the batter-fried avocado taco served at frozen-custard mogul Jim Sheridan's fast-casual concept restaurant, Unforked Eats & Sweets. The buttery flesh of the fruit once known as the alligator pear gets dipped in a light tempura batter and flash-fried, then folded into a soft tortilla with golden-tomato pico de gallo and a few micro greens. That might sound like another state-fair-style novelty, but it's delicious. (It's also a lot more nutritious than pommes frites — even fried, avocado has more potassium than a banana and is rich in vitamins B and E.) Looking for a new excuse to indulge in fried foods? It's right here.
