Found this in our bag of delicious shrimp from Tom Disson at George’s Plaice on the Roman Road.
Another surprise to add to the delight of finding this, “the last old fish shop in the East End”. This description comes from the Gentle Author, who tells the tale of Tom and his stall so much better than I ever could, here.
Our haul also included the tastiest whelks I’ve ever had and a plump pickled herring with sweet, sweet onions.
Get down there and take some time to chat with Tom, while you decide between the crab, cockles and jellied eels. He’s got over thirty years’ worth of fishmongering stories to tell you…
