Sushisamba / Duck & Waffle

So.... I love love love Duck & Waffle AND Sushisamba.  Brilliant view of the city, really nice food, cocktails with candyfloss on the top that dissolve when you pour the pineapple juice over them and the second fastest lift in Europe (makes you feel a teeny weeny bit unbalanced when you come out, but the cocktails soon sort that out).  Set over 3 floors, 3 bars, 2 restaurants, outdoor garden, lounge club.  What more could you need?

Because we went to one of the soft launches, there were still finishing touches to be made - workmen actually hanging off a giant tree in the garden whilst sawing branches off it, whilst re-attaching them?!! (Clever!) but I've been since and it looks great.  The crab was totally amazing, although they've since taken it off the menu!!!  But the bacon wrapped dates remain and are to die for.  Seriously A-mazing.  I wasn't too keen on the rabbit (I was thinking of poor Flopsy my sisters' old pet), but the pigs ears were well tasty, as were the old spot pork skin quavers.  And the pork belly - small for my enormous appetite, but melt in the mouth deeeee-lish.

Important for us girlies - the toilets, nice, clean, dark - so you always look better than you think (top marks to the designer for that one)...oh and the perspex spiral staircases across all 3 floors were my favourite feature (probably best not to wear a short skirt though hey...)

Service was good, slightly overpriced food but I think for the views, that it's worth every penny, and the head chef is a fab guy called Daniel Doherty.  Totally accommodating if you have any special requests and a top guy!

This place is also open 24 hours now!!!  So you can go watch the sun come up!  How cool is that?!!!  All in all, Duck and Waffle is my new favourite place.  You can go and just have drinks while you soak up the view, or indulge in the grub.

We followed up this night out with dessert at The W Hotel, Leicester Square.  Desert being far too many Espresso Vodka shots - delightful!  And a quick dance under the giant shiny disco ball in their Wyld Club.  Very cool.

I then fell asleep on the night bus and woke up an hour from home.  Not cool.
