I apologise in advance for the picture quality of this post.

I forgot my camera and only had my phone, but there was no way I wasn’t going to show you this place.

I’m always being asked for my favourite “hidden gem” in London, and this one comes pretty high on the list.

A tiny little stall at the unfashionable end of Portobello. They serve up the freshest fish, with punchy herbs & flavours, piled high on great big platters.

The best bit?

It’s cheap as hell.

A whole seabass for a fiver I hear you cry?! Yessir.

This place is a winner, every time.

See? Even the wise old local foxes are fans.

I went for seabass, prawns, rice, chips, salad, homemade flat bread and their signature tomato sauce.

M had tuna steak, calamari & all the trimmings.

We left groaningly full and only paid a tenner each for the pleasure.

They’re open every day except for Thursdays and Sundays. You’ll find them on Golborne road, just opposite Pizza East. Don’t leave it too late or they’ll have sold out by the time you get there. If you can manage pudding, walk down to Portobello market for pastries.

Wrap up warm and don’t be shellfish, take a friend!
