Dishcrawl Plans Vegan Dining Tour in Memphis TN

Eager eaters will be able to sample the Tennessee city’s premier vegan fare on a guided food tour.

Dishcrawl, a live dining experience that takes foodies on themed food tours of multiple restaurants, announced that it will host a vegan-themed crawl in Memphis’ Cooper-Young neighborhood. “Dishcrawlers will be amazed at what our local chefs can prepare using no animal products, eggs or dairy!” says the tour company on its website. “Memphis may have a strong reputation for meat, but we can lay down some pretty awesome vegan crunk as well.” Other Memphis tours include a Soul Food theme, a taco crawl, and a Hump Day Happy Hour. The restaurants to be included on the crawl are not revealed until right before the tour date, but the company will give eager diners hints and reveal what establishments are on the cruelty-free roster on its Twitter page @Dishcrawlmem.
