Who eats in four restaurants in one night?
Dishcrawler is a food tour of sorts. Reserve a spot on their various Dishcrawls and get taken to the karaoke ice cream truck you never heard of, or that dirty but popular little Thai joint you never dared venture into.
The meeting point of most Dishcrawls are revealed two days before each begins, eaters are literally taken along for the crawl with food spots revealed as they're visited. Dishcrawls also come in 60 minute servings, offering lunch networking and good eating opportunities.
With extremely competitive tour rates hovering around the USD26 mark, Dishcrawler seems a novelty opportunity to get sampling of a lot at once amongst like-stomached people.
Currently in five cities across the US and Canada, Dishcrawler seems like a sweet way to turn the food tour social fast. If one's able to recruit some interesting hosts (or allow self hosting), give a format and hold a little quality control across locations chosen. The idea seems a great way to quickly expose restaurants or establishments to clientele, and clientele's stomachs to some diverse pickings.
But would the novelty wear out? I'm thinking there will usually be a good pool of foodies and tourists in for a good and perhaps surprise experience.
