London restaurant Duck and Waffle is set to open its first international outpost in Hong Kong later this year.

The restaurant — known for being open 24/7 and boasting a fantastic view of London from its 40th-floor location — has been lauded by restaurant critics as being “more than just a view,” and “just the right amount of hipster”.

Since its opening in 2011, it’s been serving up contemporary British cuisine fused with ingredients and elements from other European countries, like smoked eel croquettes and, as the name suggests, its signature crispy duck leg confit with fried duck egg served atop a hearty waffle.

The restaurant held a pop-up at Ozone in the Ritz-Carlton — a Hong Kong institution that also offers spectacular views — in 2016, and according to the South China Morning Post, they’re slated to open their permanent location at the IFC Mall in Central this fall.

Details are still a bit scarce — particularly as to whether it will be open 24 hours, or if the view will rival the London location’s — so watch this space.
