Foodie Friday – AVO, AVO, AVO – OY! OY! OY!
A guest blog from Trudy.
Walking through the streets of London on a beautiful fall day in November is a joy. Destination was Covent Garden to explore the interesting, ever-changing area and the eclectic shops. Walking around London never gets old, there is always something new. And what a find I found!
AVOBAR – “Superfood” caught my eye.
Inspired by one of my most favourite foods – the Avocado, AVOBAR has a fascinating menu with dishes created around the Avocado. I knew then and there that this would be my lunch stop, deciding what to choose on the menu was not so easy to decide. As they offer all day dining, with dishes like Matcha Pancakes Sweet, to Avo Bun Lobster (the bun is actually the avocado with lobster chunks, mango, passion fruit, and tabasco as the filling) I found myself wanting to try them all.
My choice was the Superfood Salad – greens with curly kale, quinoa, beetroot, pickled carrots, omega mix and avo half with parsley drizzle. It was delicious – clean, flavourful, healthy and perfect for lunchtime (the dinner plan was The Ivy so I didn’t want to overindulge at lunch). I plan a return visit to try The Ultimate Avo Toast with a side of avo lime jam!
AVOBAR started as a pop-up in 2018 and now has found a permanent home in Covent Garden with inside seating, take-away and delivery seven days a week. Their website promotes their high standards for both food and food sources.
It has two other locations, one in Hong Kong, and one in Russia.
Location: 24 Henrietta Street, Covent Garden
