The Avocado Show is an unique restaurant creating new types of dishes with avocados as a main ingredient. With a simple idea to make dishes with avocados, which are nutritious, tasty, versatile, and good looking, they opened the Avocado Show firstly in Amsterdam.

There is a big neon sign, and some avocado decorations everywhere. As proving that this is one of the hottest restaurants in Amsterdam, the restaurant is full of locals and tourists from all over the world.
The Avocado Show doesn't take reservation in advance, and it is basically first come, first served. When you line up in the queue, the host will come to put you on the waiting list. If you have a busy schedule, we recommend you to arrive here before lunch time or a bit after the lunch time.
From small menus like toasts and desserts, they have various menu including pancakes made with avocados and some special menus. The Avocado Show use the fresh and good quality avocados from many countries including Chille, Peru, South Africa, and certified farmers.
The most popular and famous dishes here are THE WAGYU BUN BURGER and THE SALVOCADO. For the burger, it is also visually stunning as they replace buns to avocados.
Another famous menu from The Avocado Show is the salvocado, which is the avocado poke bowl. Well cooked sushi rice is topped with many healthy ingredients including wakeme, edamame, masago eggs, and salmon or mango. All of them are surrounded with avocados, which adds an unique and great taste. You do not really need additional seasoning as it is already well seasoned with soy sauce. If you prefer fresh and sweet tastes, you can choose mango mayo or if you prefer more like sushi flavor, you can choose wasabi mayo as the topping.
You will not be very familiar of rice with mangos on top of it, but different from the expectation, mangos go very well with rice and other ingredients. There are other spices prepared on the table as well depending on your taste.
There are beverages made with avocados as well. You also have a choice of wines, beers, cocktails, homemade lemonade, tea, and coffee. You name it, you have it. For the coffee, you can enjoy in the restaurant or take away, and you can choose milk among diary milk, oat milk, coconut milk, and almond milk.
