If there’s one food I’m totally over, it’s avocado. I know, I know, but hear me out. Over the past three years we’ve all been beyond obsessed, but when you can choose queso over guac at a Mexican restaurant or put Nutella on your toast instead of a sliced vegetable, I’m about ready to put this menu upcharge on the back burner. If you’re still on team avocado toast, however, you might want to bypass London when considering your study abroad, because restaurants are literally starting to ban avocado because they’re sick of serving it. Seriously, this is happening. If you pick guac over queso, consider this the beginning of the apocalypse.
London’s Firedog restaurant has officially BANNED avocado from its menu and will no longer serve it in any form or fashion. Not on toast, not as a dip, not sliced, not as a spread. Like me, head chef George Notley is #overit: “Our mission is to reinvigorate the morning dining scene in London, which has done avocado to death, and we’re frankly bored of seeing it on every breakfast and brunch menu.”
Honestly, I get it, considering I haven’t seen a brunch, lunch, or casual restaurant menu in years that hasn’t featured avocado, and for those of us who hate it, this is always a nightmare when ordering. Their reasoning totally makes sense though – since avocado is already everywhere, Firedog wants to keep creating new, exciting, and delicious menu options and don’t want to just keep serving the same basic dish as every other local brunch spot. Besides, just look at these spreads. These brunch orders are so intense, that if after consuming any of these orders you’re still missing avocado, your taste buds are trash. The word is in, and you can officially head off the Sunday scaries without even touching avocado. I know, I know, this is a strange new world you never could have imagined, but trust me, this is one new trend that’s about to start making changes to our brunch orders for the better.
