2016 Hamilton Food & Drink Fest

Sunday, September 18, 2016

Hey guys! This is going to be a short review of the 2016 Hamilton Food & Drink Fest. I feel like every year, the show get's smaller and smaller. Decor wise, the show had a nice new stage setup, but when it came to the vendors - the options were limited. I remember the days when they had 2 full rows of just wine and beer, and the same or more of unique restaurants from all over the Hamilton area.


I think it speaks volumes when a vendor decides to only set up shop for the first two days, but not the last. For the most part, I was able to grab a number of great eats, but I felt very limited with my choices. There were definitely less vendors overall this year.

I'm not sure if this was done purposely, but the theme seemed to be all about waffles. All these waffle photos, are all from different restaurants. To the show's credit, you did have everything from savoury to sweet waffles.

I hate to say this too, Twisted Lemon let me down. I really enjoyed their menu last time, but the only thing that was interesting or unique this time was their sunrise drink below.

Step up your game Hamilton Food & Drink show! I heard many people say, it was going to be their last year, you can do so much better! I had really high expectations this year, especially since Hamilton is booming with new trendy restaurants, which very few were represented at the show.
