I’ve been meaning to visit this well-known establishment since I moved to London 19-months ago. Talk about a long time coming, and now that I’ve had my first taste, I can’t believe it took so long because I tell you, it’s damn good.
Tucked away up on the 40th floor of Bishopsgate, Duck & Waffle gives you a true glimpse of London’s sprawl. It’s rare that I’m up this high so it’s an incredible reminder of just how large this city is.
We pulled up our chairs by the window and ordered a round of mimosas – a Sunday brunch essential, obviously. Then set about deciding on the menu…
Since I hadn’t been before I, of course, had to order the signature dish, or as my waiter called it “their baby” – the duck and waffle.
Not usually one to mix sweet with savoury I was a little apprehensive but I needn’t have been. The dish comes with a waffle, an egg, a delightfully crispy roasted piece of duck and a mustard-inflused pot of maple syrup. Mix it altogether and… yum! It’s honestly so good.
Of course we had to go back for dessert so we polished off their banana waffles. Also, SO GOOD. The bananas have a crispy sugar coating, there’s vanilla ice-cream and even some homemade nutella hiding underneath.
Honestly, if you haven’t paid a visit already, make sure you do. It’s open 24hrs so you’ve got no excuse. Book here.
