Dishcrawl – Exploring YYC neighborhoods one plate at a time

We were very excited to be part of great experience called DishcrawlYYC, and like the name says, a Food Crawl, yes you heard it right.  You get to experience food at 4 different restaurants all within walking distance plus drink specials!  You don’t know the meeting location until you are emailed it 48 hours prior to the event and the rest is kept a secret.  The first event that DishcrawlYYC did, SOLD OUT and the next event is a Mission Dishcrawl and only has one ticket left with her hosting this Mission community event 2 different nights.  Keep informed of the next DishcrawlYYC event by Clicking Here.

For this event our first stop/meeting place was Brewsters on 11th Ave, we all know that Brewsters has an excellent selection of drinks and the special dish of the night here was a Bacon Wrapped Meatloaf, meatloaf was nice and moist and the bacon, well bacon makes every dish all that much better!

The next stop was Brewster’s sister restaurant, Beer Revolution, they have an excellent Beer Board showing all the beer on tap, how old it was and the price.  The food here was an excellent thin crust pizza buffet.  If you check out their menu, I need to try the Hot Wing Pizza and Sticky Curry Wings, sounds so good.  Click here to visit their website.

Third up was The Rhino Killer Smokehouse, right next to and attached to District.  They have some great drinks and the food was just as good.  We got served up a Beef Brisket Slider, a Pulled Pork Slider and Deep Fried pickle, all were delicious and moist.  The menu looks great, they have tons of BBQ, a huge selection of poutine and a Bucket of Bacon if you really needed some.

Last up for dessert was an ultra cool place across the street called Canvas, which is located in the Former Three Cheers on Electric Avenue, but this place resembles nothing like the good ol’ bar.  There is a restaurant on the main level, with a nice art gallery in the lower level, which can hold to some great catering functions, during this Dishcrawl we were invited down to lower level in the gallery for some amazing hand crafted desserts.

Dishcrawl is doing something great for us food lovers here in Calgary, she is giving us a chance to visit some great food establishments in a fun and exciting way.  A great place to meet fellow foodies, meet the chef’s, managers, and owner’s of these local restaurants.  Stay tuned for some higher end events as well.  I beg you to join one of the DishcrawlYYC events soon.
