After you’ve smashed out a workout in Liverpool Street, head over to Duck & Waffle for a delectable feast. For the first time ever, the restaurant has given its iconic and mouth-watering dish a vegetarian twist in celebration of National Vegetarian Week.
The Veg & Waffle is created with a curried cauliflower waffle and topped with tamarind, paneer, pickled dates and curried scraps, and will be available until 20th May.
Executive Chef Tom Cenci said, “Although we have the word ‘duck’ in our name, the team actually love creating dishes with vegetables – it’s amazing how versatile and delicious they can be with just a bit of creativity”.
The Veg & Waffle dish joins vegetarian staples on the menu like spinach & ricotta ravioli and puy lentils with miso and nasturtiums and coal-roasted beetroot. In addition, Rich Woods – AKA The Cocktail Guy – has crafted a slate of veggie-spiked serves that are equal parts nutritious and delicious.
Named ‘Drink your Greens’ The menu includes an Artichoke Negroni, a Caramelized Red Onion Manhattan, and a Pina-Kale-Ada, with coconut washed Bacardi Superior, distilled pineapple, kale and citrus.
Rich Woods said “The mighty vegetable is long overlooked as a more than suitable replacement to fruit in many a classic cocktail. Naturally sweet, nourishing and enriching – not to mention they are damn tasty. For National Vegetarian Week I wanted to celebrate all that is great about some of our loved (and not so loved) garden particulars and shine a light on their versatility in some of my favourite alcoholic and non-alcoholic cocktails.”
It may be packed with greens but it’s not rabbit food by any means…
