Dinner @ Wild Duck

A few weeks ago, J and I had a celebratory dinner at Wild Duck in Kingston. I had never eaten at Wild Duck before so this was a good opportunity to try it out. It was a Friday night and we walked in without a reservation. The restaurant offers modern Asian cuisine in a fine […] Read more…

We got there at 6pm, however all diners must be present before a table is provided (I’m thinking that might only be the case on weekends).

I used to work in a Chinese restaurant just like it. […] Read more…
