Alexandra Village has many good eats which always leaves me spoilt for choices because there are too many good food to savour. Besides the famous claypot laksa, another name synonymous with Alexandra Food Village is Mr Avocado.
I was never a fan of avocado but I was convinced to try it one time and ever since then, I am a convert. The avocado juice here is thick, rich and creamy, it is like slurping heaven in a cup. There is a very nice fragrance to the drink and it is very smooth to the taste as well. No matter how full I am, I will always insist on getting a cup and finishing the entire cup by myself. The best thing is that one cup costs only $2.50 which is really affordable as avocado is a premium fruit. Other places that are charging up to $3.50 a cup taste nowhere as good as this. I will definitely recommend you to try out this cup of goodness for yourself and see the difference.
I have never fail to have a cup of my favorite juice everytime during my trip to Alexandra Village(AV) Food Centre unless Mr Avocado Stall is closed.
Being their supporter since my school days, I had seen the cup of Avocado juice raised from less than $2 to its current $2.50 per cup. When asked for the best Avocado Juice, what comes first in my mind was AV Food Centre's Mr Avocado.
Most of the times, there were queues in front of the shop. Beside selling the traditional varieties of fruit juices, they are also selling exotic juices like durian milk and sweetcorn milk shake. Initially I wanted to order the sweet corn milk but it was not available during my visit.
The secret recipe to their tasty Avocado Juice was never revealed. Jars of avocado juice was prepared way before hand and kept in the chiller. By nature, Avocado is rich in mono saturated fats, thus the drinks are seen creamy. It tastes sweet with Gula Melaka added and my many returns has not disappoint me thus far. Strongly recommended! Cost: $2.50
I think this is a must try for avocado juice or fruit juice lovers or for anyone who visits this food centre. The avocado juice comes with milk and tastes fresh, rich and full of avocado flavour. It is rich but yet not too sweet. A large cup costs 2.50 which i think is quite reasonable as i think avocado by itself isn't cheap. Overall i enjoyed the drink and i will definitely patronise the stall again.
There are a few stalls got this avocado juice but the best is from this stall. $2.50 is not expensive as avocado is an expensive fruit. Their business is quite good during lunch time so got to wait. The uncle quite systematic in taking the order. The juice got thick avocado and milk taste. The ice cubes added are not a lot. This stall is also famous for their soupsop drink.
At this food centre, there are two stalls selling avocado milkshake which are just a few stalls beside each other. I went for the avocado sold by Mr Avocado. Each cup costs $2.50. I was eagerly anticipating the taste as I heard that the avocado milkshakes here are quite of standard. However, I was felt disappointed. The avocado taste could barely be tasted, instead, I felt more like I was drinking coconut milkshake instead of avocado milkshake because the coconut milk taste just overpowered the avocado taste. I would think it is because the amount of avocado used is too little. Overall, while the drink tasted alright, I felt it is not worth it since I want to be able to taste the richness of avocado in my avocado milkshake.
There are many Avocado drinks stalls here, but I heard that Mr Avocado serves a better version, as recommended by a friend.
This drink is sure addictive, and I've never been away to walk away with just 1 cup. I'd usually buy a cup when I sit down to eat at this food centre. Being full from my meal and unable to drink anymore, I'm still tempted to takeaway another cup for a tea-time snack (I'm crazy over the health benefits of the fruit), and also buy a few more cups home for my family, because there isn't alot of good avocado drinks available in other parts of Singapore.
Creamy, thick and tasty Avocado Drink ($2.50)
The drink reminds me of a refreshing milkshake!
After drinking from Mr Avocado, it makes other avocado juices taste terrible and diluted.
I've always had a soft spot for Avocados. So it's no surprise how I went crazy when I saw the chains of avocados fruit juice stores at Alexandre Food Market, just next to IKEA. The most famous outlet of them all is "Mr Avocado" -- where his pureed goodness has received rave reviews from tons of newspaper articles. Titled "liquid gold", Mr Avocado's smooth, creamy, rich goodness costs onlt $2.50. After your purchase, the uncle will told me "" (you will get addicted) - damn right I did. My friend and I went on to purchase one more cup each to take away. Upon the second purchase, he repeated the same chinese phrase to our amusement.
I also tried their soursop -strawberry drink which was extremely rich, rather sweet, but extremely satisfying, especially on a hot sweltering day. The durian puree drink is pretty good too, since durians and cream do go very well - a sure favourite for all durian-lovers. There are many more healthy juices on his menu, do be sure to try them all.
This stall has been around for quite some time already and its business seem to be improving by the day. It also helps that the roasted meat stall beside it is a popular favorite. During lunchtime, you will even see executives queuing up for takeaway orders, how often you see that for a fruit juice stall? The owner dons a white shirt with the shop logo, also something you dun see often for hawker centre. I was surprised the owner (he was collecting the empty glasses) offered to take orders from me when i was seated down eating my lunch and there was still a queue at the stall. Prices for the avocado with chocolate is $3 and without is $2.50. I really love the chocolate and avocado combination. best drank well stirred, you get to taste the thick avocado juice and also the sweetness of the chocolate syrup or sauce. Perfect drink for a light lunch. Light lunch becoz if you had a heavy lunch, downing another cup of this may proved a little too much.
I don’t recall seeing so many stalls selling Avocado Juice at other food centres. I must say that the battle among fruit stalls selling Avocado Juice is strong. As long as you walk pass a stall selling Avocado Juice, the vendor will definitely ask if you want a cup. One even went to the extent of approaching us if we wanted to order the drink while we were eating. Of course we took up his offer, we did not even need to leave our seats and delicious avocado juice gets serve to us. Ours came from Mr Avocado Exotic Fruit Juice. The avocado juice was so refreshing, the avocado was blended until very finely and the milk they added to the drink made it taste very smooth. It was indeed thirst quenching.
I must say that Alexandra Village Food Centre is indeed Avocado Juice Haven! They have so many stalls selling Avocado Juice. Initially I planned to order my drink after I finish my food, but the kind uncle from Mr Avocado came around and took our order, he even served us the drink. Where can you find such EXCELLENT service in a food centre. Mr Avocado’s avocado juice is to die for, it is so good, the drink is just so smooth, you can taste that they did not add any sugar into the drink. It was just pure avocado fragrance. and one large cup only cost $2.50, where can you get so cheap and so delicious avocado juice!
One of the best Avocado Juice that i have ever drank . It sell 100 % fresh fruit juices and not only does it sell Avocado Juice it also sell others drink such as durian juice , peach juice and many others. I love the Avocado Juice and also the Durian Drink. The price for the juice is cheap and affordable and it is good for our body and very nutrition drinks. The drink was not too sweet , just nice to drink it.
Never did i expect myself to fall in love with such exotic fruit juice. I always expect the avocado fruit juice to taste strange so avoid trying it. My partner is a fan though. She loves it so much and kept asking me to try it. I finally agreed to do so. The first taste did manage to impress me somehow. The avocado goes well with the milk added. It has got a creamy yet refreshing taste. I know creamy and refreshing did not seem to go well but that was in my mind when i tasted it for the first time. The number of ice cubes added were just nice to keep it cold.
You know you found gold when you've found a GREAT fruit juice store that sells good Avocado... cheaply. Avocado Juice for only $2.5 and Avocado Chocolate for $3.
The thing is, because the store has been sealed up behind posters spammage and stuff like that, you don't really know whether they add in sugar or any other stuff just to make your drink nice or tasty right?
So yeah... i'm a bit dubious, don't drink it often.
Look at my other avocado juice reviews to find out where i'd recommend
I was really surprised to see this drink stall only sellling Avocado juices and shakes at this area. Really wonder how good their drinks are and decided to give it a try. I have bought a cup of their Avocado Shake and was immediately 'fall in love' after my first try. The shake is really thick and fresh milk in it. The Avocado taste is really strong and fragrant, which unlike some other Avocado shakes which I bought from elsewhere which may be too bland and tasteless. The stall owner is also very generous by making sure all cups of their juices and shakes are fully filled.
