Recently, I’ve had the bad habit of not blogging about my day-to-day life in Chelsea. I guess it’s because I’ve been presuming that everyone knows about these places or indulgences; that perhaps I might be stating the obvious.
But, I’m now putting that idea to the side and will start to include my favourite things about King’s Road.
First up, Phat Phuc Noodle Bar, which is found in The Courtyard on Sydney Street. You’ll be able to see the sign from the King’s Road as you cross the road from Heal’s, if you haven’t been here before.
Phat Phuc clearly has to be one of the best names for somewhere foodie but in Vietnamese, it means ‘Happy Buddha’, which makes it all the more special.
I had lunch here yesterday and as usual I loved what I had: Vietnamese Dim Sum and Prawn Laksa, whilst the bf had Bang Bang Chicken Noodle Salad.
The al fresco style of dining makes you feel as if you’re somewhere between a Vietnamese street stall and holistic goodness (with Balance the Clinic and Reflexions – The Reflexology Shop in your immediate vicinity).
And with photos of actors such as Orlando Bloom and Kevin Bacon pinned to the counter, it becomes obvious that Phat Phuc isn’t the big secret you thought it was when you descended the stairs from Sydney Street for the first time.
