Scenes from the 2015 East Broadway Foodie Crawl

The bad news is that it rained.

The good news is that a little drizzle couldn’t stop hundreds of Somerville residents from taking to the streets (or street, rather—namely Broadway) on Tuesday night for the 2015 Foodie Crawl. Presented by East Somerville Main Streets, the fifth annual Foodie Crawl saw more than 15 of the area’s restaurants opening their doors to the community to share a wide array of dishes from their diverse menus.

The food was phenomenal, with flavors and ingredients that spanned the globe, and the portions were plentiful. (Mourned one young woman we overheard at Taco Loco just an hour into the event: “I’m running out of stomach room. Fast.”) We did our fair share of snacking, too, and now that the food hangover has worn off, we’re sharing our photos from the evening below.

Seriously, we’re drooling just thinking about it.

A tough choice at East End Grille (118 Broadway): fried brie or pulled pork sliders?
