I am going to share what we experienced through the night with you. The next Dishcrawl will be in a few weeks, on February 26th in Tampa's Hyde Park. Tickets are $45 and according to the Dishcrawl website, only three remain as of today. Click here for more details.
Stop #1 was Catrinas Cocina y Galeria. This was my first encounter at Catrina's and I was blown away at the authenticity of the cuisine. We were served three courses, Chile en Nogada, Guacamole Catrinas and Quesadille Huitlacoche.

Stop #2 was down the street at Cru Cellars. I visited Cru for the first time in November and was very excited to go back. They did not let us down. Upon walking in, I saw massive plates with Cru Burger sliders,Tuna Tartare, Roasted Mushroom Orzo and Croquettas.
I did not have an opportunity to try the Roasted Mushroom Orzo and Croquettas as I left that for the vegetarians of the group. I have had the Orzo before and it is spectacular. On to stop #3......
Stop #3 was a food truck, Hott Mess who served Pork Tenderloin Sliders, Buffalo Tater Tots, Chili and a Mimosa cupcake. Around this time, I started hitting food coma but knew it wasn't time to quit yet.

Stop #4, the final of the night was at one of my local favorite restaurants, Datz. Upon looking at the menu, I became very excited. It consisted of a Honey Badger cocktail, Bacon Blue Cheese Chocolate Truffles, Tuna Tartar Wontons and Shishito Peppers.

Datz has a sister coming into town and her name is Dough.
