David Beckham reconnected with his East London roots to celebrate turning 46 with a plate of traditional pie and mash.
The special order was put in by David’s Mum Sandra at Tony's Pie & Mash in Essex and featured two pies on top of two scoops of mashed potato, all drowned in liquor.
The football star looked more than happy with his favourite comfort food which he shared with his 62 million fans on Instagram.
"Special birthday lunch from Mum & @tonyspieandmash," the star captioned his Instagram Story.
Sandra then replied to the post to thank the staff for the food, writing: "Thank you @tonyspieandmash think my present went down well," along with a laughing emoji.
The family-run restaurant has long been a favourite of David who has been going to the cafe for years.
His sons Romeo and Cruz have also previously been spotted putting in an order at the eatery in Waltham Abbey, just a few minutes down the road from where David grew up in Leytonstone.
Shop owner Tony Lane has previously said: “He has brought his family here as well. Victoria doesn’t eat it, I don’t think she’s a pie and mash girl, but his boys seem to love it.
“David also loves jellied eels – but he doesn’t like the stewed version.”
Included in his birthday order was of bottle of the restaurant’s signature chilli vinegar to slather over his birthday meal.
The former England captain also had the pie and mash delivered to the Tottenham Hotspur team while training at the London club in 2011.
Then-manager Harry Redknapp said later: "The foreign lads weren’t too sure. It’s only us Cockneys who know what pie and mash is.
"I was brought up on it so when they came I had three."
David’s birthday was on Sunday and he’s been celebrating with friends and family ever since.
However, the day didn’t stay quite so down to earth with David later receiving a very A-list gift from one of his nearest and dearest celebrity friends.
David was gifted something special from Mr Kim Jones, who is the artistic director of Dior, which he shared on Instagram.
He later toasted his birthday with a glass of Burgundy white wine, which he shared with the caption: "Birthday buttery burgundy".
Happy birthday David!
