One of my favourite spots in London to eat at is Duck & Waffle, which I previously wrote about here
So when friends of ours were visiting from the States and asked where we should go for food, I practically shouted over them in my haste to not let anyone else get a suggestion in!
We began our meal with two of their freshly baked breads
First up was the Nduja & Gruyère bread – which was simply put – ridiculously good, majorly drool worthy – so mind your keyboards! You ready? OK scroll…
^ so good right? Anyway! We also ordered the Rosemary & Garlic bread, which was some of the best garlic bread I for one, had ever tasted, pillowy soft and almost melt in the mouth bread (I didn’t even know that was a thing!)
I also – after much persuasion – managed to talk our guests into trying BBQ-Spiced Crispy Pig Ears, which they loved so, that was a win!
For our mains, Himself went for the Spicy Ox Cheek Doughnut, a savoury puff ball with apricot jam and smoked paprika sugar
and meatballs with seasonal veg – all of which was massacred in delight!
and we all shared this incredibly simple, tomato and strawberry salad which had an excellent vinaigrette kick to it
and for my main, I went with the iconic Duck & Waffle dish served with maple syrup (as did our guests!). I didn’t go for this last time and regretted it a little, so I was thrilled to be getting another opportunity at the perpetually booked up restaurant and trying it out
Just look at ittttt!!!
It may sound a bit of a weird combination, but nomnomnomnomnomnom – it’s delicious – honestly, don’t question it, don’t overthink it – just try it and enjoy it!!
When the dessert menu turned up, we were all so full – stuffed in fact – but we just had to, so all four of us shared the Chocolate Fondant (I’m sure they loved us for that…!)
after dessert, as we chatted over coffees
and basqued in the glorious views on all sides
our dreamboat waiter had overheard our friends congratulating us on our wedding anniversary and arranged for this little gem to arrive at our table just before we left
As with every dish at Duck & Waffle, it was incredibly moreish!
