London: Sunday Brunch At Duck & Waffle, Heron Tower

London // Sunday Brunch At Duck & Waffle, Heron Tower – It’s just amazing having a good brunch at 40th floor, overlooking the city of London. That was one of my Sunday, two months ago. I thought a trip to London would be a budget one, but I ended visiting some quality restaurant at one of the tallest building in London, the Heron Tower. It’s on the 40th floor and remember don’t go to other floor as you will ended heading back down and up again like what we did. Funny! The concierge down there must be laughing at us, heading up and down.
Doesn’t looks like a grand entrance to Duck & Waffle.
Duck & Waffle, the name of the restaurant has already describes their specialty – the combination of duck, and waffle. Of course they do serves other food, but their food is pretty creative too!
The bar area.
Interesting bar counter.
Back to the restaurant experience, located on the 40th floor of Heron, you can get a very good view of London. The toilet greets you first, then only you will see a bar. Weird location of toilet which made us thought we were on the wrong floor. The bar has a very interesting concept design with typography and bottles hanging at the ceiling. Heading into the restaurant area will give you an amazing view of London. Unfortunately we were seated on the west side, the best view would be the east and it was not a clear sunny day for a good view. Another interesting thing about Duck & Waffle is that it operates 24/7, so you can head over here early for sunrise breakfast!

Food will be the main attraction of the restaurant of course. Price starting at about £10 and being cheapskate Malaysians, we ordered a few dishes and shared among 4 of us! To be honest, the portions were really small and the stomach was hardly full after the brunch. I guess it’s just a food tasting session for that morning. 5 food, and it costs each of us about £16. Yes, it’s rather expensive, but the taste was quite nice. =)
Here comes the Duck & Waffle. A crispy duck drumstick, a fried duck sunny egg, a waffle and mustard maple syrup. Very weird combination, and trust me, it’s good. £17.
Bacon Wrapped Dates. The blend of sweet and salty. Another fun combination. £9.
Spicy Ox Cheek Doughnut, with apricot jam. The least interesting one, to me. £10
Wild Cornish Pollock Meatballs. I like this one, but there’s just 3 small little meatballs, which I find it not enough for four of us. HAHA. £11.
BBQ-Spiced Crispy Pig Ears. I’ve to tell you this is highly addictive and you can hardly stop eating this! £5.
