Joe's Launches Avocado Bun

Article Date: 19th August 2016


The Avocado Bun is the newest unusual food craze to hit London this summer. Is there anything avocados can’t do? From avocado ice cream to avocado face masks, cupcakes and pasta sauce this humble fruit ceases to amaze.

After taking Instagram by storm, Joe’s Southern Table and Bar in Covent Garden, London has responded to requests from customers to add an Avocado Bun to the menu. The Low-Carb and Gluten-Free burger alternative is now a favourite with customers of the London based deep south inspired restaurant.

The craze was started by Colette Dike, a food stylist based in the Netherlands, who posted a picture of an avocado halved, in which was sandwiched, a chickpea burger and grilled baby sweetcorn. The creation sees the bun of a burger swapped for avocado halves, resulting in what can only be described as a beautifully stuffed green orb. Jim Robertson who opened the restaurant in 2013 saw Colette’s creations whilst searching for new menu ideas on Instagram and felt they were a perfect fit for Joe’s.

Joe’s Southern Table and Bar is offering the Avocado Bun in three varieties; a traditional cheeseburger with bacon, southern fried chicken with hot mayo sauce and a vegetarian soy burger. Priced at £8.95 each.
