That’s it folks — civilization is officially falling. A London restaurant called Firedog has banned avocado from their establishment, and it’s a bit unsettling. The eatery claims that the healthy fat is “overdone.” We beg to differ, but the least we can do is hear them out…right?

We’re well aware that this is Firedog’s way of setting itself apart from others, and it’s pretty genius. The ban places a new challenge on the restaurant: make your food oh so irresistible that customers leave, saying “avocado-who?”

But there’s a pretty compelling reason behind the anti-avocado stance.

Head Chef George Notley explained to The Independent just why the Aegean-inspired restaurant decided pull avocado from its go-to ingredients, and it makes a whole lot of sense.
