Kiss My Hass Avocado Festival
Fuel your avocado obsession with this special eight-week menu filled with avo-infused dishes and drinks.
If you're in the camp of people who've chosen avocado over a home loan, then you might as well go all out, right? Well, this autumn, there's no better way to do that than at Sydney's new eight-week avocado festival Kiss my Hass.
The brainchild of restaurateur Ibby Moubadder (Cuckoo Callay, Nour, Henrietta, Lilymu), this food celebration will see Cuckoo Callay in Surry Hills pay tribute to Australia's favourite smashable green fruit with a limited-edition lineup of special avo dishes. They'll be available in store from Tuesday, April 13–Friday, June 11 — whenever the cafe's kitchen is operating.
These are a far cry from your basic guac-on-toast situation, too. Expect inventive plates like the tahini avocado on Lebanese saj bread ($26), a potato and pea burger sandwiched in a vibrant avocado bun ($21), spiced avocado tostadas ($25), and buttermilk togarashi avocado chips teamed with a gochujang aioli ($14).
There's even a range of avocado-infused desserts — like the avo, white chocolate and matcha mousse ($12) — plus drinks, including an avo affogato, or avogato ($6) and a punchy jalapeno tequila concoction ($16).
