Back to Waterloo & City
About a month ago, I tried out more items from Waterloo & City. Although I thought my first meal there was fine, I left feeling vaguely unsatisfied. Where was the pizazz everyone’s been buzzing about?
I found it in the Shepard’s pie. Going back to my love of ground meat, this was a hearty dish lightened with some veggies (aren’t they cute?).
The squash blossom stuffed with shrimp were my new favorite appetizer. I could have eaten all three by myself.
I can see why my friends are into Waterloo & City’s happy hour if they serve truffle fries. The burrata dish was beautiful.
Hey, we’re getting somewhere here. The Caesar salad was so visually interesting. And though I don’t (or try very hard not to) eat rabbit, the trenne looked good as well.
I also got to taste the gnocchi and clams as well as some Brussels sprouts.
Service was kind of wacky (though not unkind), it’s too far for happy hour, the drinks were watery and dear god, don’t order the Picadilly martini, it’s loud and busy but somehow I’m willing to go back…if I was nearby.

I’m surprised you seemed somewhat underwhelmed. I live in the valley and would drag myself by my tongue over salted cactus spines just to have another bite of their blood cake. I had the Sunday lunch, and everything I tried was astounding, even the simple yet flavorful roast dinner with yorkshire pudding; I’d put it up against any pub in London!
The first time I went, I had this shank that was just not flavorful. Yes, it was huge but I had to doctor my leftovers. The other stuff I had recently was good but nothing stood out in my mind that I had to go back for or couldn’t find much closer to me.
