Where? Down on the grubby lower stretch of Camden High Street towards Mornington Crescent, and across from the road from the revived public space with its shiny Cobden sculpture.

What? In minimal hipsterish surrounds, join the lunchtime queue to order a Vietnamese noodle box (about £6-7) with simple flavours – chicken, carrot, white cabbage, coriander, crushed peanuts – and a healthy injection of chilli sauce.

Simple flavours but more than filling. Photo: PR

Why? It’s packed and buzzy pretty much all day, and especially popular with the legions of twentysomethings from the nearby ASOS offices.

Notes: There are also big old banh mih (Vietnamese sandwiches) that are sloppy to eat. And you can replace the noodles for rice.

Don’t: leave the pooch at home. It’s refreshingly dog-friendly.
