How to Make Surfside’s Guacamole

Need to make a killer guac recipe for Cinco de Mayo? We show you how to make Surfside’s version.

The search for the perfect guacamole recipe is an epic one. How much jalepeño is too much? Should you use lemon or lime? Will onion overwhelm the mix? What about cilantro? Whatever that perfect combination may be, the guac at Surfside (2444 Wisconsin Ave., NW; 202-337-0004) in Glover Park comes pretty close. Chef/co-owner David Scribner shows us how to make his version, drizzled with olive oil, heavy on cilantro and lime, and mashed by hand. Check out the video for his tips on using zest, chopping onions, and getting out those darn avocado pits.
