According to some columnists, your friends don’t like it when you post food pictures on Facebook. Well, this isn’t Facebook. If you dislike food photos, then today’s blog post isn’t for you.
The organizer of Dishcrawl Knoxville invited a WNOX contest winner and me, along with our spouses, to participate in their first event on Wednesday. Other attendees included a couple who tweet as @Knoxfoodie and an actor named Linds Edwards, who was in at least three things I’ve seen: “The Boys of Summerville,” “Get Low” and the first episode of “The Walking Dead.”
A Dishcrawl is a progressive dinner. Instead of trying different beverages like you would on a pub crawl, we sampled entrées at four Market Square establishments. The food was excellent and the relaxed pace between courses gave us a chance to appreciate the different items.
At Oodles Uncorked, we tasted a sundried tomato & roasted garlic hummus served with green apple & warm flatbread; a caprese napoleon with layers of fresh marinated mozzarella, heirloom tomatoes, & basil; and macaroni baked in a creamy white cheese blend with a parmesan crust.
At Latitude 35, we tried their grilled cheese with white cheddar cheese, Granny Smith apples, and bacon; tortilla soup; and sweet potato fries.
At Shonos InCity, we had a California roll and a shrimp tempura roll.
At Rita’s Ice, we could choose a Blendini or a sundae. I chose a Blendini with Oreo mint ice and chocolate custard.
