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.

Review

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.

Verdict 8/10

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!

Tips

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.
