10 Sep London: Duck & Waffle
To dive deep into the culinary culture of each place we’ve been to, we would choose to experience a mix of fine dining and local eats. From gastronomy to patisserie, I hope foodies would enjoy the restaurant reviews that I put together.
The excitement started when the glass elevator went up and WOW we were blown away by the gorgeous city view. It’s hard to believe this restaurant opens 24/7 and still need to book in advance to guarantee a table. We had a relaxed late lunch at Duck & Waffle way up on 40th floor of the building with a spectacular view of city of London. Hubby ordered their Duck & Waffle dish which was quite decent, it’s much better than I thought. I wasn’t too keen on “fried duck leg”, and not even fried chicken & waffle. To my surprise, my taste buds approved and liked it after all. I adore the foie gras creme brûlée with butter roasted lobster and toasted brioche. It’s absolutely delicious!!! I’ll like to adopt and create my own recipe someday, that’s how much I like this dish.
With 2 glasses of wine, our bill came close to £50. Justifying with being seated at a quite table and the view of Gherkin, I’d be rather having fried duck leg than riding on London Eye. As an architecture fan, I feel obligated to bring Will to see this iconic contemporary architecture in person and yup – with drinking a glass of wine at the same time!
It opens 24/7 but make sure you make reservation in advance. Ahh try getting a table before sunset time, I can totally imagine myself sipping cocktails when the sun starts coming down and city lights gradually illuminate.
