Duck and Waffle

Up bright and early last Saturday, Himself and myself headed to Liverpool Street. With our names checked, we were bustled into a lift and rocketed upwards into the clouds to Duck & Waffle

At the top, the doors opened to reveal a narrow corridor and after winding through a very rabbit hole/Alice in Wonderland type situation, we broke out into a spacious bar area – with exceptional flooring!

The decor was bright and crisp with clean lines and all was flooded with light, I loved it

Even on a grey day like we had, the city views from the 40th floor of the Heron Tower are just tremendous

We sipped on mimosas in the waiting area until our table was ready and exactly at our reservation time we were escorted to (in my humble opinion) THE best seat in the house. To say I was chuffed is a massive understatement, not only were we right by the window to take in those stunning views, but we were smack bang in the centre of the restaurant too – endless people watching opportunities!

The cool, marble topped tables are evenly spaced out allowing for each guest to feel like they are sharing the experience privately but still getting to enjoy the comfort that the buzz of a busy restaurant brings

Duck and Waffle is a 24hr restaurant, they have a slightly different schedule between weekdays and weekends, so be sure to watch out for that if you’re after a specific menu!

and yes, I very much do want to go for their Late Night food at some point! (11:30pm – 5am!!)

With the first bout of drizzle, so too did our food arrive

Duck and Waffle

Himself got the House Breakfast, pork & herb sausage, two organic eggs poached (though you can have them any style), dry cured bacon, mushroom, hash brown, Scottish black pudding and sour dough toast. According to Himself, it ‘tasted like more’ – the highest of compliments I assure you!

Duck and Waffle

I ordered Colombian Eggs (which I had an inability to say without putting on the accent!). This included organic eggs, sourdough toast, avocado and then a choice to add grilled chorizo or smoked salmon, I went for the chorizo

Duck and Waffle

It was eggcellent (oh shush! you know I had to!)

Duck and Waffle

That being said, I could’ve done with a steak knife to cut through the crust of the sour dough bread, my goshie it was tough stuff – tasted good though!

As I sipped my delicious cup of coffee, I thought back to my earlier scoffing when I  read on their website that they limit your time with them (for two people, your slot is 1hr 30mins), but I totally get it now

with a paper in hand and the coffee on tap – I would’ve been content to sit there for hours

HOURS I tells ya!!

Whilst doing a spot of innocent people watching, I spied what I wanted to try next time ^ their signature dish ‘Duck & Waffle’, it looks nom!

Himself was positively mortified when I zoomed in and nonchalantly snapped a pic of the dish in question – bless him

Duck and Waffle

After some chat, we realised we had buckets of time left, so asked to have another gander at the menu

Shortly after reciving the menus again, our lovely waiter set down a bit of a treat for me.

With a flourish, he wished me a belated happy birthday, told me it was all Himself’s doing and bounced off merrily

Duck and Waffle

Even though my birthday was in September (when we originally made the booking), I had absolutely no issue with enjoying the birthday extension and I won’t lie to you lovely readers, this isn’t even the longest I’ve stretched it out before!

Duck and Waffle

We ordered another couple of drinks and watched as an old steam tractor wound its way lazily through the city (slowly but surely backing up the traffic!)

Duck and Waffle

We got our drinks and, feeling a bit daring, we decided to take the plunge and order something that neither one of us had ever tried before – pigs ears

I KNOW! But stay with me

Duck and Waffle

Arriving in a wax sealed brown paper bag, you’re instantly drawn and while I know many of you with doggies will think this is a snack solely for them, you are, dear friends, mistaken

Duck and Waffle

With trepidation I watched as Himself opened the bag, put a hand in and pluck out – some very none threatening chip looking entities!!

Duck and Waffle

We tucked in and I am delighted to report that they were so tasty! Deliciously crispy with a spicy BBQ flavour all shredded up and perfect for sharing (although trust me you won’t really want to!)

Duck and Waffle

Not a morsel was left behind – I do so love it when taking a foodie leap ends up working out!

Duck and Waffle

In agreement that there should be many more Duck and Waffle visits in our future, we decided it was time to give up our prime real estate. So we slung on our coats and with a flash of red in my wake, said our thank yous and goodbyes – but only until the next time!

      Thanks a mill Hayley, I thought it was a really lovely, good coat, but ever since it’s gotten really chilly here in London, I’ve suddenly realised it’s a BRILLIANT coat, it keeps me so warm, I love it!
