I'm going to start this by saying don't go to Notting Hill on a Saturday, there are just too many people, and what you find among the street vendors is not really what I would call treasures. Basically it's just not worth it and if you can, go on a weekday, Portobello Road is still Portobello Road on a Thursday. Saying that, Notting Hill is where I spent this Saturday with the boyfriend and my mama. I have never been on a weekend before (the crowds! the shock!) and just wanted to go to my favourite italian. After 30 minutes we had to refuel with Hummingbird cupcakes, I finally made it to a vintage optician I have wanted to visit, bought a fox ring from Malaya at the market in Portobello Road and then lunch at Osteria Basilico that you can read about here. Not bad, no?
I'm Christine and I currently live in London with my husband where I do my best to go to as many restaurants as possible, bake, DIY and occasionally let my hair down and go to a museum. x
