Yes, as are avocados. They're treated as such down in Brazil where avocado ice cream is rather popular.

I'd have to disagree with you and quite possibly a good number of Angelenos. Phillippe's french dip in LA is famous for their hot mustard, something that completely kills any taste of the sandwich itself and makes the experience rather regretable. I do like mustard and I do like spicy things (Louisiana hot sauce on a po'boy, etc.) but not when it's overwhelming.
