Travel food - Charleston SC
Here are some pictures from my travel to Charleston, SC
Day 1 (Dinner) at Edmond's Oast
Review: Great beer selection. They had 48 taps and lots of great beers from all over. I had a gypsy beer, which was my first exposure to a gypsy beer maker. The server was great and gave me a small history lesson in Gypsy Beer - which was a great added bonus. Gypsy Beer makers go all over the world and make their beer in someone else Brick and Mortar building - so that establishment gets to serve./sell his beer and he moves on to the next place.
Day 2 (Lunch) Chick-fil-A
I have never eaten at a chick-fil-a, so I was excited to try something new... I guess you really need to go into the restaurant to experience everything. It wasn't bad, but I could do without - I
am not an addict
Day 2 (Dinner) Crab Shack (not Joe's Crab Shack)
This place was pretty cool, lots of surf decor and lots of seafood. I tried the crab soup, which I was told was a Carolina thing... it was good. The dinner was fabulous, so good! The place was empty so we received great service - although I wonder why no one else was eating there??
Day 3 (Dinner) The Mellow Mushroom (cool name, Funky joint)
This was great pizza, but expect to wait for a table. We got there around 8pm and there was a 30 min wait. Also I heard they have a "kids" night, so if you dont want to be surrounded by kids call first.
I had the Funky-Q-Chicken - very good crust and taste
Day 4 (Lunch) Carolina Creole Lunch Truck
This is a food truck that makes very good creole food. Since I dont like spicy foods I stayed away from most items on their menu...but I did get a ham and roast beef po-boy. I wish I knew they put mustard on it - that was my mistake, so I cannot fault the cooks.
