CraveTO: Senses Ignited

The CraveTO event was, in my opinion, a huge success. It was my first time at Wychwood barns and I love the venue. The last food event I had gone to was at Evergreen Brick Works, so I was mainly comparing this event to that.  I really liked that Wychwood barns had lots of places to seat, whether it be the grass, concrete steps or plastic tables and chairs on the sand. 

When we arrived at 7, there was a fair amount of people, but it got more crowded as the night went on.

Our first stop was to grab a drink at Dillon's. I did not know about them before this event, but the cuteness of their set up and the pastel colours immediately drew my attention.

Dillon's Distillery has 4 signature spirits, and their gin and rye were featured that night. We got to choose between Rhubarb Blossom and Honey Rye Lemonade.  They were very generous with the alcohol and almost half of my small plastic cup was rye. Although a bit strong for me, the drink tasted very good. I liked the citrusy flavour and freshness. 

Asada was at the top of my to-try list for this event. For the night, they offered 2 selections, chorizo or pulled pork, in burrito or taco form. The burritos were pre-rolled so I went for the tacos as I wanted to see the ingredients.

I was fully expecting to like the chorizo more, but pulled pork won my heart instead. Probably because of all the sauces and toppings, the chorizo's savouriness was overpowered.   The pulled pork taco on the other hand was perfect. The BBQ sauce was an ideal balance between savoury and sweet.

The staff also showed me other items on their menu in-store. She definitely succeeded in getting me to want to venture out to the store one day!
