Thoughts flow away, people dream. However, their dreams cannot come true without the help of other people. Avocado Gang is such a dream full of colours, tastes, shapes, enthusiasm, insanity, wackness…The restaurant – the first avocado restaurant in Prague. It has been the collective work of the great people.

Roots come from an avocado stone slowly, unobtrusively and haltingly a little. At the very beginning you shall not even take a note of the main root that makes the way for other ones. And, suddenly, a generous tangle appears of longer and shorter roots which secure its young and small stalk. And as the plant starts to germinate, sprouts and thrives, boasts and longs, it may rely on them. The roots go into depth and all sides forming the best foundation that the rebelling youth can get. The process is not too dissimilar to the opening of a restaurant. The likeness of Avocado Gang and a simple stone giving the birth of pure beauty may be, therefore, deemed absolute.

We have worked on the restaurant for long months before opening it, slowly and inconspicuously, sometimes with doubts and an uncertainty. We have sought the proper way and tested various possibilities. Our thoughts and hopes grew and dropped in turns. We rejoiced, looked forward and meekly built the firm foundations in order to be ready to say: “We have got it, we can grow and thrive. We can flourish!”
