There are two places in Kits that I pass on a regular basis with very distinct smells. The first, and perhaps most obvious, is the Molson Brewery. While I don’t really mind the rather strong yeast smell breweries produce, I can’t say it’s my favourite when I ride by at 8am in the morning. Given its location though, I doubt that many people have a problem with the brewery smells, as I usually don’t start smelling it until I’m right next to it.
The second very distinct smell comes on my ride home. Without fail, the absolutely wonderful, garlicy smells produced by The Noodle Box hit my nostrils as I ride up Cypress. They linger for about a block or two, long enough to make my mouth water and wish I could stop for take-out every day. I do wonder though what the Box’s neighbours think of them. The smell really is very strong, and I bet I would grow sick of it very quick if I had to smell it all evening.
Any other places in Kits with distinct smells? (besides Kitsilano Sushi 😉 )
