The Avocado Show, the Insta-famous restaurant in Amsterdam dedicated to serving avocados, has just brought the green eatery to the UK. After launching three years ago in the Dutch city, it seems the restaurant has done dam good and wants to expand to more European cities. Now, two years after their London pop-up, they’ve found a home in the capital, in the Mayfair-Soho area just off Oxford Circus.
In 2017, The Avocado Show had everyone talking as it launched a menu dedicated to having avocado in almost every plate of food and mainly playing the starring role in the dish. The restaurant founders Ron Simpson and Julien Zaal founded the brand with a simple mission: to “bring joy to avocado lovers”.
The founders have brightened up our Instagram feeds by bringing photos of beautifully crafted and decorated green dishes, as a result expanding their fanbase to more than 140,000 followers on social media. The popularity of this millennial fruit (not a vegetable) which tops so many slices of toasts on a daily basis even led the brand to launch a cookbook, merchandise collection, and a documentary about sustainability in the restaurant’s supply chain.
Though the Avocado Show previously popped up in London, you’ll be happy to know it’s here to stay this time. So, you can now get your hands on the infamous avocado burger that uses a whole avocado cut in half as a bread bun alternative.
Other green delights on The Avocado Show’s menu range from poké bowls to breakfast egg dishes, as well as salads, pancakes and other sweet treats like ice cream and cheesecake. There is also another well-known item on their menu that is avo fries – slices of avocado covered in panko breadcrumbs – which are served with truffle mayo.
Julien Zaal, Founder and CEO of The Avocado Show, said: “We are excited to finally welcome London to The Avocado Show family. It has always been a dream of ours to open a location here. We look forward to sharing more Pretty Healthy Food with our fans as we continue our mission of bringing joy to avo lovers around the world and promoting sustainable avocado production.”
And then there’s the avocado on toast, the brunch temptress who is ‘apparently’ hindering so many from buying a house. Well, society can keep waiting because the avocado show is not over, it’s only the beginning!
