S & R Kelly Restaurant Review

: This is one of the remaining places where the pie and mash or eels and mash show you what this particularly British dish and longtime staple of working-class life is like. Go on, try the eels. For other such establishments, try G Kelly, 414 Bethnal Green Rd., E2, 020-7739 3603; and G Kelly at 600 Roman Rd., E3, 020-8983 3552, in the traditional East End of London. They all also do takeaway in case you want to sample this delicacy on your own.
