Eating Out: Dishcrawl Edmonton -124 Street

I have to admit I had slight pangs of guilt buying another set of the fast-selling Dishcrawl tickets since I already went to the first dishcrawl, but then the feeling soon disappeared. I snapped them up as soon as I heard it was 124 street.

I've spent so many years home with small children, hardly ever eating out (good babysitters are hard to find and expensive!) that returning to the land of dining is a bit overwhelming as there is so many choices. Dishcrawl is a fantastic way to explore and sample the food of the many restaurants on this street, so I was overjoyed to be able to go.

We hit 4 restaurants and I would recommend all the places we went to. They were all really great and I look forward to going back. Enjoy the photos!

Also, a little photography tidbit for all you budding photographers: I shot all the above images with the inexpensive "nifty fifty" 50mm lens, which retails for $130. (I bought mine used for $80). I like it because it's light in weight and a pretty fast lens, allowing you to get to a f-stop of 1.8 which is great for low-light conditions, like dim-lit restaurants! Also, 50mm is a comfortable distance, you don't have to back up or get in too close, great when you are too lazy to get out of your seat :)

Here's another review of the night from fellow blogger Carolineyeg and Linda Hoang.
