All About Avocado: Superfood Restaurant Avobar Makes Debut in Hong Kong
Presenting All-Day Healthy Dishes Carefully Crafted Using The Beautiful Superfood
Following its first permanent home just last year, London’s original avocado themedrestaurant Avobar ventures out to Hong Kong to open its first international extension in K11 MUSEA, Tsim Sha Tsui. Set to create a casual, inviting and unique dining concept, Avobar has created a wide-ranging mix of fresh and delectable dishes, each with its own creative avocado-twist. The all-day menu offers a variety of healthy comfort food, covering everything from brunch dishes, bowls and salads, through to sharing plates for the evening.
For those looking to treat themselves to an avobrunch, Avobar features delicious stacks of the Matcha Pancakes served with homemade avobutter and a sweet or savoury topping; and their Ultimate Avo Toast, is served deconstructed with sliced avo, guacamole, poached eggs along with a side of avo lime jam and sourdough toast. Other signature dishes include the infamous Avo Bun Burger, a nutritious sweet potato and red lentil patty sandwiched between two perfectly cut half avocados. Two alternative versions of the Avo Bun Burger are also available, which are the new epic edition of the Avo Bun Lobster with succulent lobster chunks, tangy mango, passion fruit and tabasco mayo, and the Avo Bun Beef, a special Hong Kong edition with pulled beef, tomato salsa & salsa verde. Another popular dish that is new on the menu and exclusively sold in Hong Kong is the Pasilla & Mushroom Risotto with miso zuke cod. To end the perfect meal on a sweet note, avo lovers can opt for the rich and gooey Choc Avo Brownie with sweet potato syrup from the dessert menu.
To compliment all the avo-inspired dishes, Avobar has incorporated the beautiful superfood into their cocktails as well. The Avo Margarita cocktail comes with an avocado twist, featuring fresh lime juice, triple sec liqueur, homemade avocado purée and tequila. There are other summer influenced cocktails on the menu, such as the signature Avocolada, made with white rum, pineapple juice, coconut cream, avocado and fresh lime juice, simple yet refreshing.
Offering a relaxed feel, Avobar Hong Kong uses its very own branding concept botany meets urbanity, which can be seen in the industrial yet warm interior enhanced with eclectic furnishings. In the main dining area, the restaurant features a bamboo-like wall, drawing attention to its eye-catching chairs and cushions in coral that contrasts with their neutral wooden benches and stools. Right next to the open kitchen, the bar countertop is made with a stunning patterned concrete complemented with high stools that runs through the back of the restaurant. As for the flooring, it is filled with monochromatic geometric patterns that compliments well with the beautifully decorated coral-coloured leaves and industrial spotlights that brighten up the whole space.
What makes Avobar so special is that each avocado is ethically and sustainably sourced with growers and farmers all over the world, bringing the highest quality avocados to Hong Kong all year round. Not to mention, avocados are packed with nearly 20 vitamins, minerals and nutrients, Avobar’s offerings are perfect for contemporary health-conscious consumers who may also live a gluten-free or vegan friendly lifestyle.
