Year of Eating Differently (90): Med Kitchen, St Anne's Court

Nestled next to a tiny internet cafe, a barbers that offers free pints of beer with your haircut on Fridays (what would you infer about the quality of their workmanship from that) and an overpriced avant-garde shop selling trainers, is this perfectly example of a kebab shop. Inside it's all overbright fluorescent lighting, a plastic menu, two donners rotating on spits, a couple of guys from the Med wearing bandannas, all the usual stuff that you'd need on a Friday night after you've been kicked out the pub. Strange, then, to find it sprouting fully-formed in Soho, particularly in the middle of the day.
Still, it was doing a roaring trade, and one could hardly complain about the absence of vomitting drunks in the doorway. Got a generously sized flatbread full of falafel and salad for £3.80, scurried back to the office and was full of food in less than 20 minutes from start to finish. A good efficient use of time and money.
Still fancy eight pints of Stella, mind...
