Folks foraging for food in Fitzrovia listen up! Mediterranean and Middle Eastern eatery, Plenty on Berners Street, offers a tasty range of healthy options for breakfast and lunch at reasonable prices.
I had lunch at this friendly little café and comptoir recently with a friend. A big and meaty chicken shish wrap in flatbread (£5.50) lived up to the café’s name at exceptionally good value for money. So did my friend’s giant bowl of create-your-own fresh salad (£6.50). I swiped a falafel from her salad. It was ace – crunchy on the outside, fluffy on the inside. A side of savoury kibeh with especially smooth and tahini-rich hummus (£4) was not necessary to fill our appetites given the ample portions of our main orders but was downed heartily nonetheless.
Plenty is a smart pit stop for coffee too. Plenty serves Nude coffee (one of London’s better roasters I reckon) and a wide assortment of teas. I enjoyed a fresh mint tea winding down my lunch.
Service was efficient and polite. The clean and pleasant dining space buzzed with customers during my lunchtime visit.
I’m keeping Plenty in mind. I’d like to head back for brekkie to try out morning menu items such as the cauliflower frittata or maybe for a between meals snack (naughty) of freshly baked date loaf or vegan carrot cake. I’m in and out of Fitzrovia all the time. Of course I already have a few foodie faves in the area. But there’s always room for one more safe bet.
Plenty is located at 34 Berners Street, W1T 3LT. Find out more at plentylondon.com.
