Fish & Chips
Pie and Mash
Early pies were actually filled with eels from the Thames, the eels would have been spiced and stewed in stock prior to being used as a pie filling. In the latter years, eels became too expensive and the pies were then filled with meat. In modern times the pies are now filled with 100% minced beef. Over the years many pie and mash shops have gradually widened their menus to offer other types of pies including vegetarian pies. Some also offer traditional items such as shellfish, pasties, and desserts like apple pie and crumbles.
