Charleston, SC influence

I was in Charleston this week on business. It influenced tonight's meal. Classic pork chop. I had collard greens which is a staple on most menus in Charleston. Then I decided to spice up a southern classic by having grits with cheddar cheese and garlic. Very very good meal tonight. First time I've egged in about six weeks so it felt good to get back into the swing of things.

    Looks like a good cook. Do you have a recipe for the grits? Those look real tasty too!

    Poogans Porch is nearly next door. Good times as well.
  • Pork chops and grits ok. Pork chops and greens ok. But grits and greens on the same plate. Man does that look and sounds good. Nice!

    Looks great! I lived in Charleston for12 years and never did the touristy stuff or tried too many of the restaurants downtown. But last month, we vacationed there with my wife's family from Baltimore. Had an absolute blast. We ate at The Ordinary, Husk, King Street Grille, AW Shucks, Toast, Basil and a couple other places. Toast and Husk had a phenomenal brunch and The Ordinary had amazing seafood.

    I have eaten at most Charleston restaurants, there about once a month. I don't get the fascination with Husk. Mostly hype in my opinion. I like the bar though.

    Husk opened in Nashville about a year ago. Hard to get reservations but worth it if you know you're coming to town. Sunday brunches so good you want to wear it on your head!

  • Wife and I visited Charleston for the first time this year. I'd recommend it to anyone. Beautiful place with amazing food.
    Brunch at Poogans Porch was one of the best meals I've ever had.
    We can't wait to go back.
  • Wife and I also went to Charleston last year for the first time.  Sorry to say, I can't remember which restuarants we went to, but loved the whole area.  My favorite thing was all the spices we picked up in the open air market.  Next time down I'll get even more.
