Old Kent Road Aromatherapy

If there is a better-smelling stretch of road in South East London then BC never smelled it.

On our ride home each night, the miserably underpopulated Old Kent Road gives way to the sights, sounds and smells of New Cross Road, which let us know we're nearly home.

It's hard to pin down, who's responsible, but between Smokey Jerky, Big T, Happy Inn and half a dozen other takeaway restaurants, a delicious smelly haze hangs over a 200-yard stretch of road every night.

If you have any eating recommendations for this stretch of New Cross, please let us have them.
