America’s history is not always bright and rosy. Charleston, South Carolina is one such area that has some terrible stories and traditions that took place previously. The past certainly is not forgotten, but it is there for us to remember and never forget so that such atrocities cannot happen again and highly recommend visiting the museums and historical places of the city and surrounding area. You can do and see many things while there, but they have recently been recognized as a culinary destination on top of a lot of other things they are doing well today for arts, entertainment, and recreation. Below are some places I enjoyed while there:
Amen Street Fish & Raw Bar – Charleston, SC
Really nice place and great good. Enjoyed the she-crab soup and shrimp with grits.
Ellis Creek Fish Camp – Charleston, SC
Very cool waterfront dining with great food. Had the calamari and their 3 piece grilled seafood platter with fried oysters and collard greens that were out of this world delicious.
Brown Dog Deli – Charleston, SC
Fun place with nice service, prices, and tasty french dip sandwich.
Handy and Hot – Charleston, SC
Flat out one of the best breakfast biscuit sandwich I’ve ever had. This thing is AWESOME! From celebrity Chef Vivian Howard I can only hope she expands this treat up to the Philadelphia area. It was their country ham biscuit sandwich with vanilla bean lemonade.
Poogan’s Smokehouse – Charleston, SC
Had a lot of fun here with a nice ambiance to the place. Had the cornbread, collard greens, and pulled pork slider.
Charleston Crab House – Charleston, SC
Good old school eatery. Had their Charleston red rice with a fried green tomato.
Christophe Artisan Chocolatier – Charleston, SC
This place is worth the visit just to see all the many creations of treats they make like the red high heels made of chocolate. On top of looking great they taste great as well.
Lil’ Yum Yums – City Market – Charleston, SC
A good snack to enjoy while shopping the City Market’s many blocks of vendors. Had the cinnamon and sugar mini donuts.
Shem Creek Crab House – Mt Pleasant, SC
Another location with a great view while dining. I had their she-crab soup that was really good, U-peel them shrimp, and Chef Terrell’s Famous Cajun Shrimp & Grits.
