[London - Piccadilly Restaurant Review] Duck and Waffle Local

Duck and Waffle Local is a casual version of the famous Duck and Waffle. We stopped in to check out the offerings.

We were able to be seated right away, which was lucky since there's usually a wait.

The prices are quite reasonable, probably because it's more of a casual establishment.

We started with an order of the Crispy Duck Tenders. These were just okay, in my opinion. They were really crispy, but the meat on the inside was kind of dry. Maybe it was an off night. The sauce helped out, though.
I had to try the Duck Fat Fries. So, we got an order. They are thick cut fries. I would say if you're here just to grab a couple drinks with friends, definitely go for the duck fat fries. They'd be great with a beer. The fries are not too greasy, but aren't quite my preference level of crispy. I wish they were also more rosemary forward.

Probably the best food of the night was the Big Quack Burger. It was a sizeable option and was a great option to share. We opted to also add the duck confit to the burger because it was vacation. That was a pretty darn good decision.

We also went for the namesake Duck and Waffle. This was semi disappointing. It may have been because the waffle isn't exactly what I was expecting. The waffle was not as fluffy as I am used to and the flavor was a little different than I was expecting.

The duck leg was pretty small. I mean, I guess it makes sense given that it's a duck and the price point is pretty low considering the restaurant's location. The duck meat was a little dry. Maybe this is common in some preparations, but I've never had such dry duck before. In fact, I usually find duck to be super oily. I think maybe it was just an off night because it was a holiday.

The syrup was great, though! I could see the duck and waffle being super good if the duck was less dry.

 I think maybe we were just unlucky with the dry duck dishes that day.

[Skincare Review] Head-to-Head Test: Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair vs. La Mer The Concentrate

 As promised, here is my blog comparing the Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair vs. the La Mer The Concentrate. FTC disclaimer: I was sent both of these items for free in exchange for my full and honest review. I tried to be as scientific as humanly possible. I had a blinded reviewer (my mom) who was actually unaware I was even doing a skincare test, so her opinion is completely blinded and she tried really hard to give a full and honest review of differences she noticed. I did this for 2 weeks. In the 14 days before the test, I was testing out the Estee Lauder ANP product in exchange for my review. I had enough product left (and actually received a second sample to test). My nighttime skincare routine was the same as usual. 1) DHC Cleansing Oil - Buy from YesStyle | Buy from Amazon 2) Micellar Water (for eye makeup) 3) Rosette Cleansing Paste Sea Clay Smooth - Buy From YesStyle  | Buy from Amazon I used my PMD Clean (from CAUSEBOX) to wash my face.
