Cheers to London, Ontario: The Main Course

Two gourmet burgers resting on a wooden plate with two beers on the side

Last week we kicked off our virtual dinner party with some pretty delicious appetizer pairings - I’m still thinking about cider and potstickers… queso….cream ale... sorry, it’s easy to drift off into a daydream when these options are so scrumptious! 

Da da da da - next up on the menu is our main course! 

The feature dish of the night is here. Typically the largest portion of all the courses, traditional options highlight meat or other protein sources as the star on the plate.  Whether French, Korean, Portuguese, Lebanese, English, Persian or Ukrainian… there are hundreds of main course dish options across a multitude of ethnic and religious cuisines and you can find them all right here in the 519!

Pour a pint of these stellar London brews and pair with varying cuisine options found at independent restaurants in Oakridge, Wortley Village, and Downtown.

Uh oh, I feel a food daydream coming on again - I think I see curry in my future! Are you full yet? Get those stretchy pants out because we aren’t done yet. 

Remember to abide by current local health restrictions - even if you can’t host a “typical” dinner party with a large guest list, you can still have fun with those at home, coordinate and gather virtually, or plan ahead for when we can see friends and family in person. 

Next week might be the sweetest of all - dessert is served. 

Until then, cheers!
