It’s your classic Notting Hill situation. Your mum said she wanted nothing for her birthday. But then last night you got a super subtle text saying ‘that antique ottoman at the market was nice, wasn’t it?’. Fantastic. But, when you’ve spent the day walking the length of Portobello Road, heading for the Singapore vermicelli noodles at Uli is always a good shout. The food here isn’t going to change your life, but it’s the kind of bright, modern spot close to a station that it’s always worth having in your back pocket. Expect crispy aromatic duck, dim sum, lots of seafood, and a big outdoor terrace complete with blankets, cushions, and candles.
