East London Eels and Gnocchi

So I’ve got a couple more entries for 23:Eat… and what a mixed bag it was!
First up:

1. Jellied Eels
Oh dear god – these are disgusting.
Disgusting.
The eels themselves taste a little bit like kipper. Most bites are littered with bones.
And then lovingly covered in unsweetened jelly (think pork pie casing)…
Just horrible.
The shop we visited for them was great though – a snapshot of East London past.

 
18. Gnocchi
Wow – this was great.
Potato/pasta chunks in an tomato and basil sauce, sprinkled with cheese.
Not the healthiest on the list, but one of the tastiest.
