Dishcrawl: Eating My Way Through the Perkins Road Overpass

Last week I had the pleasure of attending Baton Rouge's very first Dishcrawl. What is it? Dishcrawl is a national company that provides walking food tours to give locals or visitors a taste of the neighborhood. During this Dishcrawl our Baton Rouge Ambassador, Whitney, lead us to three different locations in the Perkins Road Overpass area: City Pork, Frankie's Dawg House, and Rock-n-Sake. While most Baton Rougeans have eaten at these casual dining establishments, having the chance to sample the owners' favorites made Dishcrawl unique.

Chase Lyons at City Pork gave us a trio of a Lettuce Wrapped BLT with Bleu Cheese, an Adouille Smash Burger topped with Slaw, and part of the Cuban.

Hopefully more Dishcrawls happen in the future. If executed properly this could be a great culinary entertainment option for different neighborhoods throughout the city. I would have liked to see a few more stops with smaller portions at each location as well as an included alcoholic beverage option. But maybe those things will come with time. For the first showing, Dishcrawl definitely presented something that can be built upon.
