Introducing what I like to call the Restaurant Diet diary. I am very much in the ‘Can’t cook, won’t cook’ category and this means I tend to eat out a lot.
Seeing as I live in Greater London, that means I tend to find myself eating at some pretty awesome restaurants (though it also just means I spend half my life in KFC and Nandos). So I thought it would only be right to share my thoughts and experiences about some of the places where I am lucky enough to grab a bite to eat.
It seems fitting that I kick things off with the famous Duck & Waffle restaurant at Heron Tower.
WHERE: 110 Bishopgate, Heron Tower. Literally a minute walk from Liverpool Street station.
VIBE: The lift flies you up to the 40th floor where you have to walk down a corridor (and past the toilets) before you get into the bar area and proceed to get guided into your seats in the restaurant.
The staff are nice and friendly s you would expect from this type of restaurant and the seating is arranged in a way that you should have a pretty nice view wherever you’re placed. Big groups are based in the centre of the room, so you’re more likely to get that window seat in a pair or a group of 4.
FOOD: As the name suggests waffles play a large part in the menu but these aren’t any ordinary waffles. Both the sweet and savoury options have rather fun combinations such as the classic Duck & Waffle which is a crispy duck leg with a fried duck egg and mustard maple syrup. Or the Full Elvis which is peanut butter and jelly, banana brûlée, chantilly cream and all the trimmings.
There are also classic egg breakfast dishes, salads and lots of sides available to choose from as well.
PRICE: The waffles range from £10-£15 and the start from £3. It is easy to rack up a bit of a bill if you order a main with sides, drinks and coffee etc but it is definitely great value for money if you ask me.
VERDICT: This is one of those places that gets a five star rating in my personal restaurant file. The food is yummy, the view is great, the vibe and service at the restaurant is great and this is certainly somewhere you’ll enjoy visiting time and time again.
