Fresco, Westbourne Grove

Bored of our usual sandwich or salad options we walked up Westbourne Grove yesterday to have lunch at Fresco.  

They have a large takeaway counter with wraps, kebabs and salads galore but we squeezed through and chose one of the little tables tucked away at the back.  I knew what I wanted: chicken, hummus and feta in pitta bread.  The chicken is always delicious here and yesterday was no exception - it is so tender and there is lots of it.  The same goes for the accompaniments.  My colleague had similar - chicken, hummus and tabbouleh.  They also serve us complimentary pickles which I love. We didn't fancy a juice (something they are famous for, but they will cost you £2.50), just a tap water, brought over in a large glass with ice without fuss.

The service is relaxed and you usually have to call someone over to order or pay but it's fine - it's a good lunchtime spot and you can take your time without issue.
