I’ve moved away from Canada’s great eating capital but I’m missing the food. So I want to live vicariously through you … therefore @TravelEater and @DishCrawlOTT are joining together to offer Ottawa foodies a contest.
How: Tweet a photo of a great dish from an Ottawa restaurant and/or what’s so great about it. Mention @TravelEater and @DishcrawlOTT in the tweet so we see it. We’ll retweet our favourites and we’ll select one to win a prize.
Not on Twitter? If you leave a comment below describing a dish, you’re entered too.
Deadline: We’ll select the winner Friday, February 1, so tweet or post your comment before midnight Ottawa time on Thursday, January 31.
Ok, so what do I win?! You win a $25 gift certificate to use at Ottawa Dishcrawl. It is easy to pickup online, and you can use it as early as the next dishcrawl on February 5 or 6.
So, what is a dishcrawl exactly?
You meet up with a bunch of people just like you, and, led by your knowledgeable host, you walk from restaurant to restaurant, each of which has prepared a special dish just for the food crawl. Eat up, then on to the next! All food is included in the ticket price (if you want a drink, they’re extra unless otherwise indicated). Photos, tweeting, and sharing eating advice with your table mates are more than welcome.

And check out the Dishcrawl Ottawa website (http://www.dishcrawl.com/ottawa/). The next Ottawa event is East Meets West, exploring Little Italy and Chinatown. The first date sold so quickly, so they added a second. February 5 and February 6.
Recently ate an amazing meal at SmoQue Shack in the Byward Market. Ordered the pulled pork sandwich with a side of baked beans. The sandwich came with a healthy portion of delicious pulled pork with the perfect amount of bbq sauce. The beans were great as well and also had chunks of pork in them.
Great description – If I were a pork eater, I’d be eating this sandwich next time I’m in Ottawa!
This guy makes a mean soup! I love soup. Helps with the flu and is super healthy for you. What restaurant has a good variety of soups outside the daily soup? Ask megasoup to make one on honour of dishcrawl
I’ll pass that along to the Ottawa Dishcrawl folks, Megasoup – thanks
