LONDON | A Little Of What You Fancy is pushing back against the gentrified trend of having intricate dishes in trendy modern spaces by serving some traditional British food in their shabby chic café. Yes it’s very of the moment, and more than a a bit hipster-chic, even if we’re loathe to use the term, but do you know what? We don’t care when the team consistently deliver the goods, without a bit of pretension or attitude.
The home-style cooking here gives you all the classics without the fuss while the ever-changing additions to the menu will keep you coming back for something new. The pan fried cod with new potatoes and salsa verde is fantastic, as is the Asian-style pork belly, which is served with a ginger and sesame slaw that cuts through the richness of the pork fat beautifully. The tasty brunch gives another reason to visit here more than once. The brioche French toast with raspberries, Greek yoghurt, and maple syrup, is exactly the kind of simple food done right that A Little Of What You Fancy. Wash it all down with a ‘Fancy’ Bloody Mary, and you’ll be set to take on the challenges of the day ahead.
The crowd here isn’t dressed to impress but to simply enjoy a good meal with mates or on their own. It simple. It’s honest. It’s delicious. It’s, well… a little of what you fancy.
