About Avo Avo
A little pre theatre Gem. Its small, so the tables can be neat.
A small restaurant in the Finnieston area of Glasgow, this is a good choice for a pre Hydro event meal. The salads and burritos are great and with the free side for every 2 mains, is a reasonably priced option. I'd recommend the tortilla and dips side. The tables can feel a bit squashed and when busy the limited staff are hard pressed to offer the best service but all in all its a great choice.
Avocado bar in Finnieston
Based in one of Glasgow’s hippest dining enclaves, Avo Avo brings a totally unique offering to the city’s foodie scene — an avocado-themed restaurant. Created by three friends who stumbled upon the concept in Amsterdam, their menu celebrates the moreish green fruit in style. Inside, you will find a cheerful eating spot decorated (as you’d expect) in vibrant greens, with comfy banquettes and wooden tables. If you fancy tucking into fresh and hearty fare with friends, then this is where to head.
Inventive avocado dishes
Avo Avo uses the freshest avocados around to conjure up a creative array of choices. Menus can change, but expect a range of egg bennies and brunch-style treats, plus burgers, rice bowls, salads and other mains. Choice options might include the smoked salmon & cream cheese burger in an avocado ‘bun’, the avocado and walnut mac ‘n’ cheese, and the avo burrito.
And let’s not forget dessert. Tuck into treats such as the warm chocolate and avocado brownie, the avocado & lime cheesecake and the avocado ice cream.
The smoothie range offers an energy boosting accompaniment to the menu and includes the Broccoli & The Beast, Berry Go Round and Detox Zing.
