Tuesday night I went on a Dishcrawl. I explained Dishcrawl here. It was at International Mall. I had no idea what to expect. I was in for a real treat. Tracy is the ambassador here in Tampa. She emailed all of us the starting restaurant. She keeps the restaurants a surprise. At 6:45 we all gathered at Pelagia Trattoria. Wow! We were set up outside. The weather could have been more perfect. It was very fancy.
The food was amazing! We sampled the Squid Ink Linguini, Grilled Pear & Watercress Salad, and the Cavatelli. It was all absolutely delicious. I especially loved the Cavatelli. It was so rich and creamy. I could have eaten only that all night and been completely content. We got to meet the Executive Chef. The whole experience was wonderful.
Our third stop of the night was TooJay’s. We had their classic sandwich, a potato pancake, and a cheese blintzes. I ate every single bit of it. All of it was amazing. The potato pancake was cooked nice and crispy just how I like it. I have never had a blintze before. It was so yummy. I can’t believe I’ve never eaten at this deli before.
And for our final stop. My personal favorite of the night, Le Macaron. I’m a sweets person. Boy did they deliver! We each picked out two macarons and had gelato to go with it. They melted my heart when they brought out the cappuccino. I chose the passion fruit dark chocolate and the Colombian coffee. Words cannot even describe the taste. Out of this world!
I have to say a big Thanks to Tracy and all of the host restaurants. Everyone did an outstanding job. It was a truly unique experience. I hope you get a chance to do a Dishcrawl for yourself. You will not be disappointed. I was one happy and stuffed Dishcrawler by the end of the night :)
