Ah, the avocado. Catnip to millennials; green gold to clickbait-savvy financial journos; inescapable by brunchers across the capital. There is no food that evokes the past three years quite so well.
It’s shocking that there isn’t one already, but a dedicated avocado restaurant – dubbed Avobar – is coming to London. Before that appears, the peeps behind it have launched an avocado-centric pop-up just off Covent Garden, also called Avobar. And it sounds rather good.
It’s a daytime affair, operating from Thursday-Saturday 10am-6pm and Sunday 10am-5pm starting next Thursday February 22 (there’s a soft opening this weekend, too, but it’s already fully booked. Soz!). The menu will transcend your standard slowly browning avocado on sourdough, featuring things like sweet potato toast with smashed avo and coconut labneh, poké bowls, a vegan green bowl, shakshuka and avocado hotcakes can be expected. Wholesome, right? Right.
The Avobar pop-up can be found at 18 Floral St, WC2E 9DS. Bookings can be made at the Avobar website.
