It was a sweet, balmy Saturday so before long we were in a belly-gurgling lift up to the 40th floor of Heron tower, to Duck and Waffle, the highest restaurant in the UK, on our way to meet our friend Rik.
Surprise Holly! It’s Duck and Waffle time.
We flew up the lift and excitedly took our seats at a table in the corner. Between the three of us we loaded up on brunch.
He opted for the ‘fat boy’ toasted pbj – toasted thick slices of brioche with every bit of breakfast enclosed (peanut butter, banana, strawberry jam, duck egg AND maple-glazed bacon) – the oddest combination which somehow worked!
These bacon-wrapped dates… oh sweet lord, absolutely delicious! I know the namesake is Duck and Waffle, but to me, these were the highlight – once bitten totally smitten. I could have devoured platefuls… and licked the plate! Hot, sweet, salty and comforting all at once.
The views are pretty extraordinary. High up on the 40th floor we could see all over London.
It was a great morning with great company, just how every weekend should be.
Duck & Waffle is on 40th Floor, Heron Tower, 110 Bishopsgate, London, EC2N 4AY. Website here.
