Sitting on the 40th floor of the Heron Tower is London's absolute food sensation, making a whole heap of gorgeous dishes to tantalise your tastebuds. With little Lucy visiting from the North, where better to take her than the amazing Duck & Waffle boasting all sorts of meaty delights and cocktail concoctions. Luckily managing to sneak a booking on the same day, we headed on up in the Charlie & the Chocolate factory-esque glass elevator overlooking the city and were shown to our table through the hustle and bustle of the buzzing bar. Thankfully the duck & waffle is always available, but the menu is constantly updated every month with new and exciting dishes to surprise and entice.
Sadly, despite wanting absolutely everything on the menu we opted for a couple of sharer dishes as recommended by our lovely waitress.
The BBQ spiced pigs ears were presented to us in a paper baggie with Duck & Waffle's very own wax seal. Think bacon rashers meet pork crackling. Positively delicious, we couldn't eat them fast enough.
No hobos allowed. My home brewed root beer and rum cocktail came, disguised in a paper bag. Think New York hobo, drinking on the street with a twist of homemade root beer goodness.
I'm wearing a Topshop cami, Boticca.com wishbone necklace and Zara leather trousers. Lets call it hobo chic.
Lucy opted for a far more regal cocktail, accompanied by it's very own cocktail shaker, goblet and truffle.
Literally haven't stopped raving about this little number. Foie Gras all day breakfast, please can I eat it all the time. Like seriously, please.
Thick slice toast, streaky bacon, deep fried black pudding ball, fried quails egg, foie gras and nutella. Yes that's right, nutella. Like maple syrup on bacon and pancakes but oh so much better.
Garlic, rosemary and freshly ground seasalt on warm ciabatta. Yum!
And for the pièce de résistance...
The duck & waffle was truly triumphant and certainly worth naming the restaurant after. Chef Tom (@TomCenci) was certainly on form when whipping up this delightful dish.
I am always partial to a G&T, and couldn't wait to try Duck & Waffle's own concoction with added Yuzu to great a gorgeous citrus frothy top.
Whether it's a birthday, date night, girls night or just craving a sweet and salty delight head on up to the 40th floor of the Heron Tower, as good news, duck & waffle is open and on the menu 24/7. Hallelujah!
Check them out on Facebook, Twitter and online here, and remember call at least a week in advance to get yourselves the perfect spot in the corner of the restaurant overlooking the whole of London in its beautiful twinkly light beauty.
