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.

Strangely it reminds me of the chicken and Shweps eatery in Sofia

Sadly those days seem long gone, pie, mash and liquor (parsley sauce for the un-initiated) or stewed or jellied ells was my favourite lunch instead of school dinners during the 1940's. All from a tiny Pie & Ell shop down Rathbone lane, Canning town, East London.
