Call me basic, but I can’t get enough of avocados. I live for the moment when the creamy green fruits are of that perfect ripeness, when they aren’t too hard but don’t tipple into the browned mushy consistency, otherwise known as doom territory… So when I heard that a restaurant dedicated to the stuff was set to open later this month, I let out a little welp of joy (slight exaggeration, but you get the gist).
Sure, you might think an avocado restaurant opening in 2021 sounds like it’s about five years too late, but for avocado fans out there, the news that the popular Amsterdam restaurant, The Avocado Show, is set to open up a branch in London is hugely exciting.
Londoners can already get their avo fix at several spots around the city including Henrietta Street’s Avobar but for the Insta fans out there, this is an extra excitement. Set to open its avocado doors on Princes Street in Mayfair, this will be the restaurant group’s first London site, following a very successful pop-up back in 2019.
And we know what you’re thinking, aren’t avocados supposed to be bad for the environment? Yes, that’s true. It has been reported that their huge growth in popularity has helped contribute to deforestation, but The Avocado Show is on a mission to not be a part of that as everything they serve will be made using sustainable avos instead.

Like all Insta-famous restaurants, you can guarantee that the interiors and food has been designed with snapping it up for the ‘gram in mind. If any of their other restaurants are to go by, expect pastel pinks and greenery filled walls to be a statement part of the layout of this 50 cover restaurant.
On the menu, its focus will be on avocados (obviously) so your brunch game will be raised to a whole new level. Expect dishes such as a Truffle Deluxe Poke Bowl filled with avocado, cajun chicken, edamame, pickled cucumber, sesame seeds, parmesan, sushi rice and soy dressing with truffle mayo; Mango Tango toast, made with curry hummus and mango before being topped with an avocado rose and black sesame; and Saint Stack, a toppling stack of vegan spirulina pancakes, avocado, blueberries and flowers.
Let’s face it, this restaurant does appeal to a certain demographic, but if you’re even the slightest fan of avocado it’s definitely worth hitting up.
