I just griped about Seabirds today.  I was in the Irvine area and could stop by their truck, but when I checked their menu for this week it was so uninspiring I didn't go.

Asian Cucumber & Watermelon Salad -> it sounds healthy, but meh
Sweet Potato Fries -> junk food
Grilled Granny Smiths with Cinnamon Walnut Crumble -> junk food if added sugar
Beer Battered Avocado Tacos -> junk food
Tempeh Bacon Tacos with Apple Chutney -> maybe
Organic Pesto Fried Rice -> sounds gross

I have eaten at the Seabirds Truck 3 times so far, and I like it.
The girls that run it are always very nice, but I do agree for the most part it’s junk food.

The Watermelon Salad is very good... yum
Beer Battered Avocado Tacos are really good, but total junk food.
I tried a Raw Beet Salad that was also really good, but they don’t have it on the menu right now.

It is junk, but I expect no less from a vegan food truck. Beer-battered avocado sounds deliciously greasy enough that it would attract omnis.

I ate from them once when I happened to be in the area, and shared the sweet potato fries, jackfruit carnitas tacos, and beer-battered avocado tacos with a friend. The sweet potato fries are ok, the 'carnitas' are good, but I really really liked those avocado tacos. Very fresh, filling.

(It's mostly because I'm not a huge fan of avocados to begin with and so I picture it as equivalent to deep-fried battered butter.)

LOL first you haven't tried General Tao's now you dislike avocados... I always knew you were very special ;)

(But I haven't tried General Tao's because I'm not a big fan of tofu.)  Tofu rates slightly higher than avocados for me, and that's only because of baked tofu.  It's been a couple of years since I've purchased straight tofu I needed to make bacon.  (I don't dislike the taste or texture, I dislike that you have to do food prep for it and it can't be gnawed on as is out of the container.)

you are sooooo high maintenance tofu is what i turn to for quick meals... baked tofu i load onto salads... all you gotta do is drain and press, but now i've seen a brand that comes already drained and pressed by Wild Woods i believe!!!

That's funny...
Avocados don't melt when you cook them.  ;)

Butter is 100% fat, Avocados are about ~15% fat by mass.
A 150g Avocado is about 22g of fat, 10g of fiber, 3g of protein, and 240 calories.
I'm sure some are better than others, but overall Avocados aren't bad for you just a little high in calories/fat.
It's the deep frying part that's bad.

What's wrong with junk/comfort food? It's okay to splurge once in a while... especially if you're vegan. :)
