Brunch | Ox & Angela


let's agree that all weekends should start with brunch at a trendy downtown restaurant, the sun shining, and with good friends in tow.
simple request, right?
it was today, for myself & 3 others at least.

mr. handsome and i traded in our kids (or left them to be spoiled with the grandparents) for the morning, as our friends c & d joined us downtown at one of my favourite restaurants for a stab at their brunch offerings.
ox & angela located at 528 17th ave sw, is a spanish tapas restaurant with an emphasis on sharing food, which naturally entices my favourite type of conversation, one about food.

in addition to their regular menu, o&a also have a 'spanish table' (or in this  case a 'brunch table') offering, allowing you to try a bit of everything course by course, which always makes for a happy palate and smiling belly.  and today we did just that. 
6 courses of delicious food; including amazing dates, eggs benedict w/ blood orange hollandaise sauce, and smoky fried potatoes topped w/ garlic aioli, that I honestly just want to eat 5 plates of, by myself, before taking 2 more to go.
