Duck & Waffle review

Located in the city of London and situated on the 40th floor, you’ll find a 24 hour restaurant that serves traditional British cuisine with European influences.

Our first visit to Duck & Waffle was back in November 2014, where we were kindly treated to dinner by Ken’s brother and sister-in-law. We tried the famous confit duck leg and fried duck egg, which is served on top of a crispy waffle and with maple syrup along with a few other starters. The only thing that was missing was the view. It is easier to be allocated a table by the window when in a group of two. 

We decided to return two years later in July and were delightfully given a table by the window, where we could watch the sun set whilst eating.
For starters, we chose BBQ-spiced crispy pig ears, which were served in a brown paper bag sealed with a wax sticker. The thinly cut strips were crispy, crunchy and well seasoned but as they had been deep fried, the oil had started to seep through the bag. I did enjoy them but it is best to eat them whilst they are hot or they will become quite chewy. 

We also ordered some pork crackling, served with salad leaves, thinly sliced radishes, gooseberries and dollops of apple sauce.

I was really looking forward to eating their star dish again, however it didn’t taste as impressive as the first time. It was presented exactly the same but I found the confit duck leg a bit more oily. My love for maple syrup hasn't changed though! 

To end our meal, we opted for a trio of sorbet flavours topped with a heart-shaped wafer. As I had missed out on trying the sorbets last time, I couldn’t wait to eat them. Smooth and sweet, my favourite out of the mango, strawberry and raspberry was the strawberry.
