  1. A: Back in May, Dean Street welcomed a new South American resident Galeto to a street flowing with French, Italian and Asian neighbours. Not to be confused with the Italian ice-cream gelato, you can’t miss Galeto for its eye popping rainbow shade out front and the graffiti style wallpapers inside.
