A Stroll Through Notting Hill

Who doesn’t love Notting Hill?

The 1999 film starring Hugh Grant and Julia Roberts has immortalized Notting Hill and Portobello Road Market. So with a free afternoon, Mafe (my Colombian friend from university) and I met up at Notting Hill Gate underground and took a stroll down the famous road.

A store filled with antique sewing machines.

Lunch at The Castle Portobello

Towards the end of our stroll, we stopped at a gastropub, The Castle, for lunch. They were having a 2 for £20 deal so we grabbed some lunch and sodas. One thing I learned is that in London, lemonade is a carbonated lemon-flavored soft drink.

Fish and Chips at THE CASTLE

My fish was made with Aspall Cyder batter. Delicious!
