Avocado pop-up goes permanent in London
London’s love affair with millennial favourite the avocado is showing no sign of slowing, and the capital is about to get its first permanent restaurant dedicated to the fruit.
Having started life as a pop-up earlier this year on Floral Street in Covent Garden, the Avobar has found a permanent home close by on Henrietta Street.
Opening its doors on 24 August, the Insta-friendly venue will boast an eclectic menu devoted to the humble avocado.
On the menu you’ll find classics like avocado on toasted sourdough and smashed avocado with a homemade coconut labneh, beetroot hummus and feta.
Instagrammers will be happy to learn that the Avo Bun will also return to the menu along with adorable avocado sliders that switch up the bread for avocado.
On the interiors front expect a laid-back California vibe where you can also pick up avocado skin care products in the Avobar shop.
Over the last five years the avocado has grown to become a brunch favourite all over the world, with diners happy to pay hefty prices for avocado on toast.
The popularity of avocados among millennials prompted Australian real estate mogul Tim Gurner to advise the youth of today that if they want to buy a house one day they need to stop “spending AU$40 a day on smashed avocados”.
A single avocado contains over 20 different vitamins and minerals, and more potassium than a banana.
The antioxidents, amino acids and essential oils in avocados can help to moisturise skin and repair damaged hair.
