Off the far end of the more famous Portobello Road lies this incredibly cosmopopolitan and characterful street that bustles with its engaging mix of independent boutiques, traditional retailers, vintage and antique shops and a wide range of international restaurants. A street market sells bric-a-brac and groceries alongside street food stalls such as the prized Moroccan fish food shack.
