Sometimes I just crave those comfort food, lucky for me it’s not that far away. East London is filled with pie and mash shops. You can get a tasty meal for cheap £3.50 to be exact. G. Kelly at Roman Road market has been around for over 70 years.
The pies and crumbles are baked in-house using only British beef and chicken. I love eating the traditional beef flavour with mash and liquor (parsley sauce). It’s a must for me to drench the pie and mash with a mixture of chilli and normal vinegar. The pie comes with a good pastry that’s not too dry or soggy. The minced beef had the natural flavours with a little seasoning. The mash I had mix feelings parts of it tasted powdery and parts were fantastic. The parsley sauce was the perfect condiment for the other two.
Overall G. Kelly pie and mash shop is a must try for some traditional East London British food. It’s cheap and cheerful and you walk away satisfied.
