Distinguishing feature of the Lambeth Walk are the eel and pie saloons, where you can get hot soup, hot pies and parsley sauce, or stewed eels and mashed at a penny, twopence or threepence. Often the whole family is taken.

Dieticians would gasp at the sight of small children polishing off large bowls of potato. But the eel-pie saloons supply a need for somthing hot and filling that is also cheap. Taken from 'Life in the Lambeth Walk' Article.
