I’m going to write a book about Charleston. It’s gong to be called : Taking Pictures on Porches and Eating at Oyster Bars. Seriously, that’s pretty much all I did.  I’ve heard  there’s a lot more to do. Then again why would you want to do anything else? When we arrived late on a Sunday and went for a walk up King Street and did some shopping. There are a ton of cute boutiques will a lot of “ya’ll ” accessories. Thank goodness we worked up an appetite because we had dinner reservations at Husk!

Husk

Basically, if it’s not Southern it’s not being served. My favorites were the pimento cheese crackers and the friend catfish. I grew up on food like this so for me, it was perfect. Once I left a friend told the building was haunted. I don’t know if that’s true but if it is I imagine the ghost is very southern and very good at cooking.

Sugar

The next morning we stumbled upon the cutest bakery in a quiet neighborhood in Charleston. They serve basic coffee but the desserts and pastries are far from basic. They make everything in house and it was absolutely delicious. I mean what’s a vacation if you aren’t in a sugar coma by 10 am?

Rainbow Row

Rainbow Row is the stretch of 13  historical homes that must be painted in bright colors along the waterfront is not to be missed. We got there early and there were already people out taking pictures. Some have speculated that the reason behind the painting of these homes was so drunk sailors could find their way home after a night at the bar. Other’s say that they were painted pastel colors so they would stay cool in the hot Charleston summers. Either way, I’m here for it all!

167 Raw

We waited 2.5 hours but who’s counting when the Rose is flowing and the weather is nice. The space is small, seating approximitaely 5 people at a time but like I said, when you’re hungry and wine drunk, life is good! When we finally got inside I discovered the bartender looked exactly like my first kiss in 7th grade, so that entrained me at least until the oysters showed up. I had ceviche, guacamole and a fish taco. The lobster roll was out of this world! It was so good we almost went the next day and waited again but it was getting too close to dinner so a snack wasn’t very feesable. Who else has the travel style of trying to fit as many meals as possible into 24 hours?

Leon’s Oyster

Clearly I did not consume enough sea food or fried goods on this trip so on the last day I just had to make a stop at Leon’s. The vibe is hipster meets authentic southern food. The scalloped potatoes were something my grandmother approve of, the men in skinny jeans? Not so much. The oysters were fresh, the cocktails were strong and the ranch dressing was flowing. It’s definitely not to miss if you visit.

Dinner the last night was nothing short of phenomenal ! I never knew I liked grits until I landed in this spot. The interior is so cute and it’s a little bit more upscale than all of the oyster joints I visited. We didn’t eat until 9 pm on Tuesday and the place was still crowded. It would be a perfect date night or if you wanted to go a little more upscale on your trip.

Pineapple Fountain

I couldn’t leave Charleston and call myself a blogger without taking pictures at the famous Pineapple Fountain. I’d like to claim that I’m so YOLO that I climbed into this fountain and almost got arrested, however there were a ton of kids when I showed up. Getting them to move so I could take the perfect picture was no small feet. I think it was worth it because the pictures I got were so cute. It would definitely be a place to bring the kiddos if they were on the trip.

I hope you guys enjoyed my (mostly) eating recommendations in Charleston. As always, I’d love to hear from you guys what you like. I will definitely be back soon!
