Perched up on the 40th floor of the Heron Building close to Liverpool station, sits Duck and Waffle. Unlike most of London that shuts down at a certain hour, Duck and Waffle stays open 24-hours a day. From the name you would think there would be all different variations of Duck dishes and waffles, but actually there is only one dish that serves both duck and waffle with a fried duck egg. This restaurant is great because the views are amazing, the best I have yet to see in London. Better than the London Eye. The menu is small plates with a few large plates.
Now,the Shard (Europe’s Tallest Building) has recently opened their viewing platform charging £40 pounds per person to go up and see it. Now this seems insane to me because I can’t believe the views are any better there than they are at the top of the Heron Building, so I might as well have some food and drink to go along with my view!
The friend I went with was very hungry when he arrived and decided to pretty much order a lot of the menu so I got a fairly good tasting. The food is good but not incredible. I would come back with someone who is visiting London but would not go with someone who lives in London again. The Views are truly spectacular and worth a visit.
