Duck & Waffle, Liverpool Street (London)

Duck & Waffle seems to be a place that everyone talks about.  If you haven't been before, you know that you'll go there eventually.

I was relieved to find out that it lived up to the hype.

The concept is a 24 hour restaurant and bar, located high up in the Heron Tower so it offers amazing views of London.  People regularly have stories of dropping in after a big night out to watch the sunrise.

If you are looking to book for dinner, be prepared to book well in advance for the peak dinner time.  I had a friend from Sydney visiting and thought it would be the perfect chance to finally try Duck & Waffle - rest assured that I locked in my 7pm dining time weeks and weeks ahead!

There is a doorman at the bottom of the building and a glass elevator.  For those who get dizzy in glass elevators - make sure you face inwards!

The view is worth the ride up.







We ordered the following dishes to share:

Roasted octopus with chorizo, potato, lemon, capers (£13)


spicy ox cheek doughnut with paprika and apricot jam (£10)





foie gras crème brûlée with butter roasted lobster and toasted brioche (£16)


fillet of angus beef carpaccio with foie gras, pecorino and truffle (£15)



Duck and waffle - confit duck leg, fried duck egg and mustard maple syrup






The food exceed my expectations - each dish was a wonderful combination of salty and sweet.  I would happily go back again.  If only it wasn't so hard to get a table!
