Duck and Waffle, Heron Tower

 My friend Holly lives a few hours away; we’ve gone from seeing each other every day at uni to far too far apart! As I’ve missed her terribly (and couldn’t make her birthday), we set a weekend aside for a stay in London and a serious catch up.

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.

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!

Of course, we had to get the namesake whilst there – a great combination of salty and sweet – gorgeous crispy duck leg confit, duck egg served with a mustardy maple syrup.

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.

  • I love Duck & Waffle. I also had the scallops and the duck dish itself. I fell in love with it, so so good! I love maple syrup on anything.
    Didn't try the dates yet though. Might need to go back for them!
