Annapolis International Food, Wine, and Hops Festival!

I participated in Annapolis International Food, Wine, and Hops Festival today. I wasn't sure what to expect and was pleasantly surprised. The majority of the restaurants on West St. participated in the festivities. It was basically a food and alcohol crawl through 16 restaurants who offered beer, wine, and food samples; and believe me 16 samples add up! Now on the the important part..

The best food of the day was had at Breeze, it offered Gorgonzola grits, topped with a salmon filet and pico de gallo. It was incredible! I hadn't thought much about cheese grits until that moment and have begun looking up various recipes and they are plentiful.

El Torro bravo offered palatable cheese quesadillas and chicken taquitos. Tsunami provided California rolls, Maryland rolls (crab and Old Bay), and a tuna lollipop. Carpacio offered mouthwatering arrancini. Annapolis grill supplied above average chicken tenders. Lemongrass gave out rice with egg, chicken, and vegetables and offered various Thai sauces to top the dish with. Crush, a wine bar, offered amazing tuna tartar.

As far as alcohol goes, I ended up drinking Pino Grigio most of the day and I'm not complaining. El Torro Bravo did have various flavors of Margaritas and a Pina Colada.

Don't forget about this exciting event this time next year!
