Brunch in Liverpool Street
We had a highly anticipated brunch in Liverpool Street at Duck and Waffle on the 40th floor of the Heron Tower. We waited patiently for a table for two months for brunch so make sure you book in advance! The service was excellent and we had a great table by the window with amazing views of London. Brunch is served on weekends from 11am to 3.30pm, as well as Bank Holidays.
We had to order the Duck and Waffle: crispy leg confit, fried duck egg, mustard maple syrup. This was absolutely divine. The House Breakfast Lincolnshire sausage, two eggs – any style, dry cured bacon, grilled tomato, mushroom, hash brown and black pudding was plentiful and delicious.
With a glass of wine, mimosa and tea the bill came to around £70 so save it for a special treat. That said, the portions were reasonable and the food was good. We had a lovely experience at Duck and Waffle and absolutely recommended!
Dinner at Duck and Waffle
Elliot Grover has just been appointed Executive Chef of Duck and Waffle who has experience at Hix and Scott’s Mayfair. He has put his touch on the menu whilst keeping the classics customers love (the bacon wrapped dates).
We visited for a press night special where we sampled dishes from the new menu. Our favourite dishes from the ‘Small Plates’ section were the Twice Baked keens Cheddar Souffle with shaved black truffle, parmesan sauce (£14) and the Seared Isle of Mull Scallops with potatoes mousseline, chilli, garlic (£19).
The large plates were similarly impressive with a fantastic vegetarian Nut Wellington, pistachios, sprout tops (£18) and Native Breed 40 day aged cote de boeuf with bernaise sauce (£84 for 1kg).
