A Restaurant Dedicated to Avocados Is Opening in Amsterdam

All the creamy, green deliciousness you could ask for.

Avocados: everyone loves them, not just Aussies accused of spending all their cash on smashed avo for brunch. In Amsterdam, one person loves them so much that he's opening up a restaurant dedicated to serving the green creamy fruit up in as many ways as possible. Yum.

The aptly named The Avocado Show is due to open in February in Amsterdam's De Pijp district, and is calling itself "Europe's first and finest avocado bar". Breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner, late at night, any time in between: if you've got a hankering for avo on bread, avo between two pieces of bread (aka avocado sandwiches), burgers made with avocado buns and more, you'll find it here.

Owner Ron Simpson told MUNCHIES that he found the inspiration for his new single-ingredient eatery in two obvious places, the internet and his own diet. "I looked at the internet and how people react to certain products like Nutella, Oreo, and peanut butter and figured I want to find a main mono ingredient that's adaptable to almost anything," he said. "People, including myself, throw avo on just about any dish and are making extremely creative dishes with it. So we decided to open a valhalla for anyone who loves avocado."

As you've probably noticed, avocado isn't literally the only thing on the menu, although every item will include it in some shape or form. Just imagine the Instagram pics. Of course, this isn't the first time someone has had this idea, with a pop-up showering London with avo across four days in 2016, New York boasting a few avo-centric places, and plenty of Australian cafes only really a few non-avo dishes away from fitting the bill.
