For those that don’t know, Duck and Waffle is situated on the 40th floor of the Heron Tower, Bishopsgate. The Heron Tower is the third tallest building in London, standing at 230 metres – hardly surprising that the view is nothing short of phenomenal!
First time I came here I ordered the Belgian Waffle with Banana and Nutella, which was exactly how you’d expect. Nothing more and nothing less and a bit steeply priced at £8.50.
This second time I ordered “duck egg en cocotte”. A heavenly sounding dish of Duck Egg, wild mushrooms, melted gruyère cheese, truffle and some toasted soldiers. If it’s at all possible, it actually tasted better than it sounds, (it already had me at Gruyere) but this was really really incredible.
Layer upon layer of flavours all bounced happily on my tongue, but nothing overpowered. Very easy to do, (one would think) when truffle and cheese is involved. How can you not drawl over the thought of mini saucepan oozing with melted cheese, sautéed mushrooms and a big fat egg in the middle.
This needs to be a weekly addition to my diet, absolute heaven.
