Bola Cuisine is the type of place that has a menu, but you can ask for any combination of things and a suitable price is agreed upon. In a few minutes your concocted meal is dished out from the cauldron-esque pots and wrapped up in a box for you to go on your way. The Nigerian takeaway spot in New Cross is stripped back, with just enough space for half a dozen people—so it’s best you are on your way quickly. Between different combinations of plantain, cassava, egusi, and puff puff, you'll easily get return change from a tenner or even a fiver. Its value for money far surpasses neighbouring cafes and chicken shops. Just make sure to get the jollof rice. A lot of Bola’s trade comes from catering for good reason—people across London crave their rice dish and when you try it, you’ll find out why.
