Any cheap interesting places to eat in Penge?

Heading down there later and was wondering if there is something in the same ilk as Everest Curry King in Lewisham or just something a bit different and budget, etc.
There is a somewhat tongue in cheek website called Penge Tourist Board that has suggestions.
Ended up at this Nepalese place for Momos and pumpkin curry.
Cheers
You lucked out, KidKruger. That's the best takeaway/restaurant in Penge imho
How serendipitious (sp.) then !!
I looked at a house a few doors away then checked-out the Alexandra then we thought we'd check out the food at HK as I saw momos on the menu, how's that area (assume you live near) ?
Interesting Menu. Reasonable prices.

Is it licensed . ? or BYOB. if so any corkage charge ?

I do live nearby. The conservation area with the 5 cute roads of cottages are there plus the almshouses. You've also got the Alex pub and Nurseries for beer/food and cake/coffee/plants on your doorstep. In general terms, everywhere that side of the High Street is good, the other side can be hot and miss.

Actually I have a friend who I used to work with for many years who lives in Penge.
We were planning to meet up for a curry in East Dulwich.

He is going through a painful separation and is in a bad way.
This Penge restaurant might be a better option for him. 10 minute walk.

Note it's mainly a takeaway with a tiny seating area (10 people max). Lovely people run it and really great food but it's very small.
Alex pub was waiting for kitchen to be sorted (relatively newly opened). Alex Nurseries should concentrate on selling plants rather than having unecessary conversations with customers (maybe a one off but I wont be going back).

Maple Road had some great boozers some selling food - that was some time ago so not sure how its changed.

You are an easy walk or bus ride from Sydenham and four award winning restaurants

Foxy - as BJ says there's just a couple of tables at HK. We took food out.
BJ - thanks for info.

Alex pub's kitchen has been up and running for a while now and the food has proved very popular. Surprised that somebody took offence in the Nurseries. The owner and staff are amongst the nicest people I have ever met. I suspect it sells more coffee and cake than plants but is terrifically popular. I popped in on Sunday and the queue to be served was about 10 people long so I gave up.
There are also the Hibagon sushi and grill and On the Hoof bistro in Sydenham.
