Staycation Day 9

Another day at home for the most part, finishing our 2015 recap which you’ve hopefully watch by now – the biggest highlight is our trip video from Vancouver Island, make sure you watch it!

Then capped off the first day of the new year with a delicious dinner with some of our nearest & dearest

Duck & Waffle

One day late, we celebrated BK’s birthday at Duck & Waffle, a recommendation form my friend ZD.  One of the few high rises in downtown London, we were treated to great views of the city as we met A & L in the bar for pre-dinners cocktails.

And with a menu set up for sharing we were able to try lots of different dishes…

Everything was really good – I think the pig ears, ox tail doughnut and octopus were the top three for the table, but no bites were left behind on any plate.  Happy birthday BK!
