Richmonds, Bateman Street
With possibly the least obtrusive shopfront in Soho and a hidden location, it's easy to miss Richmonds sandwich shop. It opened a couple of years ago, I think, and seems to have a loyal customer base who like to support the little, independent shop.
The interior is as basic as the exterior, with virtually no decorative touches. It's as if someone went about creating a cafe using the least amount of fixtures, fittings and decoration possible.
Ordered a toasted sausage and egg sandwich with brown sauce. I was disappointed to see the dreaded microwaved, pre-cooked egg which is never a good sign. But the toast was acceptable and they were slightly better than 'economy brand' sausages - slightly plumper than the cheapo varieties.
3 out of 5.
