If tradition trumps flavor, you’ll want to head to the East End of London for a slimy delicacy that dates back to the 18th century. Though their popularity has diminished due to limited eel migration and the pretentiousness of younger generations (ugh, kids these days), jellied eels were once a primary food source for the city’s working class. In fact, they were about as English as pie and mash and all of the Queen Elizabeths.
What are Jellied Eels?
A traditional dish consisting of chopped freshwater eels, boiled and cooled to form a jelly. Basically any vegan's nightmare fully realized.
