It's not often you get to sample some of the best restaurants in Memphis in one afternoon. In true Dishcrawl style, the sampling doesn't happen in just one spot. The charm of the experience lies in the food driven expedition. Six downtown restaurants represented by well-respected chefs competed in the Memphis edition of Battledish, an international competition where the winner is decided by the votes of the people, people just passionate about food.
Here are a few of the dishes and cocktails I sampled and enjoyed devouring. You can see the official results here. Scroll down to the last photo and see the dish I voted as "Most Delicious." Apparently, many tastebuds agreed.
Special thanks to Kim of Dishcrawl for the invite (a big hand to you for organizing it), to the chefs for an amazing display of culinary perfection and to my fellow dishcrawlers that day - Matt of Fox 13 and Thomas of Eat Local Memphis. See Matt's great coverage of the event for Fox 13 here.
