So who is hungry? I haven’t posted a food / foodie related blog post in so long which is quite surprising considering all I do is eat and indulge at restaurants. I’d also like to announce that I’m part of Time Out’s elite user reviewer group, The Time Out Tastemakers, which is extremely exciting. This means that I have the pleasure of going around London and writing reviews about all the treasures I find on Time Out. I’m really happy that I will be able to influence millions of Londoners and tourists. I rank each place out of 5 stars. I also get exclusive access to events, which is great! So far, I have reviewed the Sky Garden, Brixton Beach and others! #TOT Read all of my foodie filled and fun reviews here : http://www.timeout.com/profile/U-GNmTIJAW2UYsjnncaHB-w==/?%2Flocale=en-GB
This post is all about 24 hour restaurants in London. After a night out of dodgy dancing and clubbing, I am absolutely starving. I mean, who isn’t? It can be hard to find restaurants that stay open past midnight in London. I normally scout around for a 24 hour MacDonald’s, however what if you could have an actual delightful meal and sit down as well, rather than scoffing a Big Mac or Egg McMuffin in the back of a taxi. I’m more of a brunch than a breakfast lady.
Luckily I’m here to help you..yes you! Just call me the 24 hour breakfast, brunch and dinner Fairy God Mother as this post includes five restaurants, that stay open for 24 hours, all night long, baby! Get ready to tuck in and enjoy. Let me know if you have any other 24 hour restaurant recommendations. Kick your heels off, unbutton that top button and get your Uber app ready.
1. Duck & Waffle
Close to Liverpool Street station, I love Duck & Waffle. The views of London are incredible as Duck and Waffle is on the 40th floor of the Heron Tower with floor to ceiling windows. You can see London in all it’s glory. I ordered the Duck and Waffle because i was intrigued by the name of the restaurant and nothing else on the menu sounded as exciting at the time. My meal consisted of confit duck, fried duck egg and maple syrup which might sound strange to some people but I loved it. If you like chicken and waffles, there’s a chance, you might like Duck and Waffle more.
It’s so sweet and satisfying, I can see why it’s their signature dish, It was delightful, I really enjoyed it. I also had a cocktail (I didn’t go after a night out) which was served in a Nutella jar, extremely exciting. Majority of the cocktails on the cocktail list are £14. Open 24 hours a day and seven days a week, Duck and waffle is perfect if you want a luxurious meal after a night out and you can watch the sun rise! Also perfect for breakfast, brunch or dinner. Sushi Samba also in the Heron Tower, serves food until 2 am.
VQ is lovely. Perfect if you want to chill with friends. Both the Chelsea and Bloomsbury locations are 24 hours. They have 24 hour breakfast too so why not treat yourself to poached eggs, avocado and chill jam or buttermilk pancakes or skip straight to the main menu and treat yourself to rib eye steak and chunky chips or chill con carne. I love the sweet potato fries.
The cocktails are great too and super strong! There is night tube in London as well now, so you can always get the tube down to VQ or any other restaurant’s on this list. Everything is cooler at night. The nearest stations are Gloucester Road, South Kensington, Earls Court and Fulham Broadway. VQ also do afternoon cream tea.
