Re: “Mi Xao

My girlfriend and I recently returned to the USA after living in Hanoi. I formed an addiction to Vietnamese food while living overseas and have been consistently disappointed by the lack of authenticity of Vietnamese restaurants in the southeast. That is, until my first visit to Mi Xao. The pho bo is absolutely perfect, it truly makes me feel like I'm back in Vietnam. The owner, Toan, is a gentleman and is always incredibly friendly to us every time we come by. Mi Xao has become my favorite restaurant over the last few months and has been a huge help for me personally transitioning back to life in the USA! If you are thinking about stopping by, I can not recommend Mi Xao more!

Re: “Once Upon a Child

Voted Best Baby Stores for a reason, beautiful stores and wonderful owners. They do so much for many local charities. Word of mouth does indeed work!

Re: “Sea Island Savory Herbs

Really cool spot with amazing quality and variety of plants. Want an obscure heirloom varietal and all the knowhow you could need to make sure it thrives in our Charleston climate? Even if you want a standard item, this is the place to go. The atmosphere is relaxed and fun (not crowded, noisy, and hot like many of the garden stores in peak season), the plants are healthy and well marked, and the staff is friendly and helpful.

Re: “Monza

DeAl's gets a lot of love and deservedly so. But every time I eat at Monza, I walk away satisfied and routinely ask myself the question "why don't I eat here more?"

For a break from the PBR culture --- and obviously a different style of pizza...head on over and try it out if you're new in town (or, if you're like I was a year or so ago and just haven't given it a chance yet.)

I would even go as far to say that this is probably the most underrated spot on Upper King and has been for some time now. The fare/atmosphere/what's on tap isn't sexy as the newer spots, but it's overall solid.

Re: “Five Loaves Cafe

Don't let the busy nature of the place discourage you. Five Loaves has too good of a sandwich at too reasonable a price point to have it ruined by a bunch of tourist mouthbreathers and indecisive college kids blocking up the sidewalk and entrance. Shoo them away from the door like flies if you must, or glare at them in a threatening way. If push comes to shove, initiate a fist fight with the self-righteous guy from Maryland who doesn't understand why anyone would ever tell his busted wife to allow others to enter the restaurant. Whatever it takes to mark your territory. Or so I've heard.

Anyway, that's how good Five Loaves' sandwiches/salads/soups are. Don't take shit from non-locals and this place will be your bitch in no time.

I recommend the Pork Loin sandwich (formerly known as The Parker), the arugula salad with goat cheese/candied walnuts and the Ultimate BLT on croissant. Get everything on croissant. Can't go wrong with any of them.

Re: “Bambu

The food in this place rocks! I was afraid to go to this place because of what I saw online. But my best friend kept saying that I needed to go. So I went and WOW! Crazy! Food was great and inexpensive and the atmosphere was terrific.

So, being the jerk that I am, I'd asked, why did they get so many bad reviews and then they pointed to me to all of the other sites that they were doing well on. I showed them the review about the Groupon and they said that in this business, you can only try to please everyone. Not everyone can be satisfied. Further, they noted that they are under new management and that they took over the business in 2013.

Lesson learned: Most people that enjoy a location would never take the time to write a good review... it is only those that have a bad experience that go out of their way to note it. So... I am going out of my way to write a review of my experience last night!
