Hillbillies

Say hello to Notting Hill’s newest Hillbilly, Phoebe Watson. She’s taken over my spare room and is going to live with me for a little while. We’re clearly pretty happy about it.

We spent our lunch time wandering around the area as I played tour guide. This meant a stop off at my all time favourite jewellery store, 118 Portobello Road.

They import boho goodies from all over the world so it’s a must for all vintage magpies.

I left with this gorgeous Afgan bangle.

Next stop on our whistle stop tour of The Hill was Pizza East. It’s a really relaxed, light and airy place to spend a sunny afternoon. They play the best music and the pizzas are delicious.

We went for the crispy pork belly pizza and an avocado & butter lettuce salad to share.

This pizza is outrageous. Juicy pulled pieces of pork and the crispiest crackling with mozzarella and toasted mushrooms. My favourite bit? The chewy, crispy crusts with little sparkles of rock salt. Just so sexy.

Tomorrow I plan to show her more of Notting Hill’s secrets. Any little gems you think I should include?

    Rosie, please can you do a post on Portobello Road. I’d love that and I think others would too! X
