I recently went on a whirlwind trip to Charleston, SC. It is so beautiful there, relaxing, and the food is to die for. I just love visiting there more and more each time I go. This is a quick post of 5 not-to-miss places for eating, drinking, and being merry.
If you are down shopping on King St., don’t miss the chance to snag a poke bowl or açaí bowl from beech. For under $15, you can have anything on their menu. The portions are huge and could easily be split between two people for lunch. I ordered the tuna which was so fresh. Each dish is very customizable where you can pick each ingredient that comes in your bowl. I left full, feeling healthy, and very happy with our decision to stop.
We stopped in for cocktails after dinner at Edmund’s Oast and I was so happy that we did. Their whiskey cocktails were out of this world. I tried both the old thyme punch and red wedding, both of which were fantastic. The menu looked divine but all we sampled was the muscadine pie for dessert (which was out of this world delicious). The environment was swanky in a deconstructed way. This is the perfect spot for date night with its great patio and excellent bar.
This was honestly one of my favorite meals of the trip. The service was great, it was affordable, and the food was delicious. We split the gnocchi app, which I would skip next time, only so that I could finish my entire entree. I had the soup sampler which I would order every day if I could. I also had the 1/2 soup and sandwich. That arugula salad with goat cheese, candied walnuts and beets was bomb. Those beets though. This spot is not to be missed.
I am a sucker for all things involving tex-mex, taco, salsa, or nachos. I was definitely not disappointed with eating at Taco Boy. There are two locations in Charleston, and I would totally suggest going if you are in the area. The pineapple margarita is perfection, the dip trio made my mouth sing with delight. I mean what can be wrong about salsa, guac, and queso? The taco I ordered was absolutely delicious and well cooked shrimp with the perfect amount of sauce. The real star of the show though was the street corn on the cob. WOW.
I was so happy with our pre-beach breakfast at Black Magic. The wrap I ordered was delicious with a sweet mango salsa. The side of fruit that was served with it was a TON of fresh pineapple, orange slices, and a few grapes which they sweetly packed up for me so I could take it to the beach. The coffee was also really really good. This was the perfect spot for a filling breakfast before a day at the beach. I can’t wait to go back and have lunch here.
Where are your favorite spots in Charleston that I should visit on my next trip?
