Just got back from a fabulous girl’s trip to Charleston, and want to keep you an inside peek of what to eat, see, and experience on your next trip:
Oh, the food is to die for. Literally. Heart clogging, rich, creamy grits and “low-country” food are screaming heart attack; however, if there’s a way to go, I’ve died and gone to heaven. Be warned: I gained exactly 5 lbs in 4 days, and it was worth every single lb. Amongst all the restaurants we ate, HUSK was the definite winner. We completely lucked out because they had a cancellation last minute-reservations fill up months in advanced.
Other restaurants visited (ranked in order of yum factor):
****these 2 were a tie: Magnolias (lunch) / Hall’s Chophouse (Sunday brunch – gospel music)
**the Ordinary (dinner, and true to it’s name) – to be fair, we didn’t order the oysters which they’re known for.
*Charleston Grill (first night dinner) Of course, due to the fact I sprained my ankle upon leaving, this played a major factor in the one star rating. Image of hospital visit below:
(excuse the spray tan mishap on the bottom of my foot…woops!)
Again, in order of rank:
*****Palmetto Carriage Ride (private tour)
*****Goorin Hat’s (rockin’ my new hat same night i bought the hat)
****the Griffon pub
Hope this gives you a good overview and ideas for your next trip to Charleston!
