Pimlico Fresh, Victoria, London
My point of residence here in London affords me easy access to three handy stations. That’s Victoria, Pimlico and Westminster. Despite that, I do find myself venturing further afield then sampling some of the local cuisine around here. Time Out London was so generous to label the area as “a gastronomic desert, riddled with soulless chains and not much else”. Which is not entirely untrue. Chalkboard menus, friendly staff and communal wooden tables immediately suggest Pimlico Fresh is different. I found a seat (it gets packed) and contemplated the options. I devoured the green eggs and bacon on toast option (for about £7). They go a little nuts on the cherry tomatoes but the plate is a very happy one. A good smush of avocado, perfectly fried eggs and bacon. With the right amount of runny yolk underneath a stream of pesto. The ratio of toppings to bread is very appealing. A little salt and pepper helped finish of the flavours and I was a satisfied local.
Also had a coffee when dining in and that was fantastic.
