In a nutshell: All-avocado restaurant hits Covent Garden
Summing it all up: Wondering if we've gone peak London? Wonder no further as Covent Garden prepares to welcome the city's first permanent avocado all day restaurant
It does read like the kind of thing we'd have done an April Fools on a few years back, but yes it's true, London is getting a bar devoted to all things avocado. News broke that Avobar would be joining a host of other new restaurant openings on Henrietta Street.
It's fair to say that the reaction to the news on social media was mixed.
On the one hand, you had some folk genuinely excited at the prospect of more avocados in their life.
But others weren't quite so sure.
So there is an avocado bar opening in London. We are all going to hell.— Crispin Sugden (@WinoOfMaddox) October 17, 2017
If you're firmly in the first camp, you'll want to know that the menu in this all day restaurant will be all avocado-based dishes so think avocado and spicy tuna on crispy rice, avo tuna tartar or maybe aubergine fries with avocado dip.
