Saba Abroad: Camden Town

By Saba Hamedy, Former Daily Free Press Editor-in-Chief, Fall ’11

Home to the punk rockers, foodies and everyone in between, this London hub is probably one of my favorite places I’ve adventured in so far. From eating “Dutch dunkers” at the open market – which features stands of dishes from all over the world – to buying a 9 pound hand-crafted clay ring – the neighborhood isn’t a disappointment for anyone who visits, including me. Both during the day and at night, the area is filled with the most eclectic group of people and has something for everyone.

The most quirky shop in the neighborhood? A store called “Cyber Dog” that was designed to look like a club on the inside – techno music and staffers decked in “moon shoes.” But don’t be deceived by it’s rave-esque ambiance, the store is also home to sex toys and fuzzy neon jackets, appropriate only for the ultimate raves. Never fails to disappoint.
