    These days you can’t scroll through your Instagram feed without seeing avocado in some form, whether it’s spread across a piece of toast, fanned out in a healthy salad or whizzed up in a smoothie.

    It’s little wonder avocados have become a staple part of our diet: they taste great, go with everything and have all kinds of health benefits. So really, it was only a matter of time before an avocado-only restaurant came to London.

    Run by Meredith Collective, the new avocado-based pop-up restaurant will open in Clerkenwell’s Printworks Kitchen. It will feature a five-course menu including avocado gazpacho, avocado ice cream and even an avocado margarita. YUM.

    Due to such a high demand for tickets, they’ve added Saturday 11th and Sunday 12th June to their dates, and it looks like they’re going to sell out quick.

    Not an avocado fan? Fear not. Here are five other one-food eateries to try.

    Big Apple Hot Dogs
    Inspired by New York and made in London, these are some seriously top-notch hot dogs. A meat lover’s haven, you can choose from five different ‘dogs and a range of toppings. Good luck eating them politely, though.

    Tartufi & Friends
    With flagship restaurants in Rome and Milan, Tartufi & Friends is a truly Italian offering tucked away inside Harrods. Try delicious truffles in a variety of dishes, and you won’t have mushroom left! (Sorry.)

    Balls & Company
    You can’t go wrong with meatballs – something Masterchef Australia finalist, Bonny Porter, totally cashed in on when she decided to give them a gourmet twist and set up shop on Soho’s Greek Street. Choose from Wagyu beef, pork with ricotta, salmon confit, chicken and quinoa, or beetroot and feta balls.

    Arancini Brothers

    If you’re after a different kind of balls altogether (not that kind) make your way to Arancini Brothers in Kentish Town, Old Street or Dalston. What began as a tiny market stall in Brick Lane has developed into three retro cafes serving the Sicilian street food favourite – deep fried risotto. Move over spaghetti!

    Smack Lobster
    Located on Oxford Street, Smack Lobster is a quick and casual eatery with urban interiors. A spin-off from cult favourite Burger & Lobster, they’ve extended their seafood menu to include four different flavoured rolls, made with hot brioche and filled to the brim with flavour. We reckon you have to try at least three.
