Compiling a list of ethnic enclaves in London

Howdy CHers,

I'm constantly trying to broaden my London horizons and travel to obscure areas to eat and experience the many cultures the city houses. I really enjoy travelling to areas with distinctive ethnic attributes, i.e., the Broadway in Southall, where you feel a bit like you've trekked across the world rather than 20 minutes on a train, and thought a comprehensive thread would be a great addition to the board.

Off the top of my head :

Afro-Caribbean : Brixton, Harlesden, Stonebridge, Tottenham, Dalston, Lewisham, Peckham
Bengali : Whitechapel / Tower Hamlets
Chinese: Chinatown
Greek - Palmers Green
Japanese: Ealing, Golders Green, East Finchley
Jewish : Golders Green, Stanford Hill
Korean : New Malden
Middle Eastern: Edgware Road
South Asian: Southall
Vietnamese: Deptford, Shoreditch (Kingsland Road), Hackey (Mare Street)

Please feel free to add (and correct me if mine are wrong).

Happy Saturday!!!
