They are normally eaten with bread and butter. I am not a fan , but my mother loves them and is always very pleased with the ones I buy for her at Borough Market.

Oh god I wouldn't bother, but if you must you can usually get them at a pie and jellied eel shop or a market.

Per the old Millwall song, that's all you need, a glass of beer...

Sounds very unappetizing [I know a lot of people eat them] but then again I love pickled herring and my family hates it.

These are usually found outside the centre; here's one outlet in Shepherds Bush: http://cookespieandmash.com

I"m not sure why you think you should eat them (by all means go ahead and try them) but if its because you think thats a staple diet for Londoners, you are about 50 years out of date. Seriously.

I am a third generation Londoner and have never seen a jellied eel.

G Kelly in Roman Road offer jellied and stewed eels as well as really delicious pies: www.gkellypieandmash.co.uk Take the number 8 from Bethnal Green Road towards Bow Church, alight at Ford Road for the market. tfl.gov.uk/gettingaround/maps/buses/pdf/beth… Kellys is on the right, about 20m from the junction / entrance to the market.

Manze in Tower Bridge Road had jellied and stewed eels when I was there late last month. Their pies aren't as good as Kelly's but their mash was tasty. Take the number 42 from the Tower and alight at Caledonian Market; Manze is more or less across the road from the bus stop. tfl.gov.uk/gettingaround/maps/buses/pdf/towe…

Try Manze at Chapel Market (Islington) as well. Take the number 30 or 73 from KX to Baron Street, walk straight ahead to the market and turn right, where you'll see Manze on the right. www.manze.co.uk
