Set in the trendy neighborhood of Daniel Stapelstraat branded by eclectic shops with trendy cafes and restaurants; an area easily accessible by both car and public transportation (from using the tram or the train station) which is a pleasure for a new explorer in any city, but especially Amsterdam…

But I digress…this is where you’ll find the Avocado Show – every bit the show with an intimate setting that would remind you of being at a matinee…giving you a feeling of a sexy secret that you want to keep all to yourself, a charming greeting at the entrance and of course a magical menu that will excite you with an array of avocado centered dishes.

 I think The Avocado Show stands out because of its original concept of creating pretty healthy food with avocados, and also because of the great execution of the idea. The dishes are styled and plated with great colors, shapes and contrasts to compliment the great taste and really blow your mind.

We created the idea based on our own love for avocados and the success of mono

restaurants. It gives you the best spot to eat something and we love that idea.

  1. What do you think makes the avocado such a great ingredient to work with and create dishes around?

The avocado is super nutritious, but also very versatile. Making it possible for us to
