I am smitten by this traditional eel, pie and mash shop in Broadway Market, Hackney, East London.
With its cheery pastel yellow wall tiles and quaint furniture, F. Cooke has been here since 1900s.
Antique eel sign. Traditional menu.
Robert Cooke, the charming owner.
Handmade beef pies, served with mashed potatoes and parsley-based gravy (known as ‘liquor’).
Jellied eels quite hard to come by. I was pleasantly surprised with its nice, slightly chewy texture.
