We eat at Phuong at least once a week. It is very good, very traditional southern Vietnamese food. The pho is tasty and the broth very flavorful. My favorite is the rice vermicelli with grilled beef and egg rolls. Another excellent option is the house special fried rice. It's loaded with diced carrots, peas, and Chinese sausage.
For something out of the ordinary try the bahn xeo, a Vietnamese fried pancake made from rice flour stuffed with shredded cabbage, onions, and a variety of other fillings. The bun bo hue is another standout dish. It looks intimidating since it's swimming in chili oil, but it's not really that hot.
Service can be slow, but it's worth the wait. Phuong and her husband are from Belgium and they don't speak English very well, so there can be a language issue. Feel free to practice your French, though.
Chad has helped me so much with many physical ailments.
He is the Real Deal.
I highly recommend him.
Love it!!! When it comes to fast food...your options are usually pretty limited to low-quality/low-grade food. Persimmon is not only fast, but has an incredible array of options that are healthy and fresh. The soup happy hour is a great deal too on the way home from work.
This is a special place. It makes you feel very hip and cool just going there,The only place that i would eat grits, and the chicken and waffles is a must have.
We love this place! The Cheesesteaks are fantastic.
Everything I have ever thought less of Charleston for has finally arrived. Thank goodness for these retro hippie amazingly creative individuals. I will never leave unless you don't stay. THEALLEY CHARLESTON
We love park pizza, and I have to get my Bradwell pizza fix once a month or bad things happen (fig preserves, turkey sausage, apples, walnuts, blue cheese, caramelized onions, nom nom nom). And every other pizza we've tried is delicious as well. And on top of that, the people that work there are super nice.
Heart is an amazing addition to JI! The food and drinks are incredible! Service is on par with a fine dining experience, everything is made to order...not cookie cutter!! Get the word out so HEART continues to stay on JI! We love it!!
Love the vibes at Lava. Also Larry can really cut some hair.
We tried this out a couple of weeks ago and found the pizza to be wonderful. It is a bit blackened on the edges, as the above reviewer said, but we also had pizza like that in Italy, so I'm wondering if it's more of a style issue than a technical issue. We also had the fries, which were fantastic, and the arrancini, which were outstanding.
Lava Salon is now located at 811-B Savannah Highway! Right next to Avondale Wine & Cheese....
Excellent store, covered most everything in working with beads.
BEER UNIVERSITY IS AWESOME!
I missed this shop so much when it was under a different name. Call me slow, but I just found out that Richard had reopened a sandwich shop again. (My grapevine is a little slow) It was great news to me. My lunch spot changed as soon as I heard Richard and Gloria were back making sandwiches. There are very few good sandwich shops in the area. This place more than fills the void! The Turkey Rasberry Chipolte or the Chicken buffalo wrap are my favorites.
It is great to have a small business that takes pride in their work. Food chains get boring. Richard's Coffee and More brings back a little spice to the Park Circle area. Be prepared for a local business supporting the local community with a smile and great food. Cheers Richard....Glad to have you and Gloria back! I will make sure to come through the doors more often!
We’ve been to Rutledge Cab Co twice. Our first trip was the second weekend they were open….Yep, had to wait an hour but the bar was full and fun so it wasn’t a major hardship. Enjoyed the food and service, they were jammed so we gave them a break on having to wait longer than expected for our meal. We had dinner there last night, it was awesome. Fish Sandwich was the best I’ve had. Our friend loved the Chopped Salad. We got seated right away and the service was smooth. Looks like they’ve got it together. I really wanted to like this place...... Looks like Wagner Terrace has a new hangout and a good one at that.
I've eaten here about 5 times and have had excellent service and food each time. Last time I had a confit of pork shoulder. I think it was likely the best pork dish I've ever tasted. It's a destination dish. If you ever see it on the menu, run don't walk.
We thought RCC was great, and I have heard nothing but positives from everyone else I know who has been there. The grilled spicy wings were great, different than the usual fried variety. Drinks were also good and staff was all very friendly. I only saw a couple of menu items that looked over priced, one of which I ordered but it was still delicious. We will be back soon to try the burger, pizzas, and the BLT benedict...
My husband, two young daughters and I live in Canada and visited Charleston for the first time last week. OMG!!! This city is great. It was great fun walking the streets of the city and seeing all the beautiful homes, court yards and, gardens. Our girls are too young to appreciate the history of the city but they are the perfect age to enjoy the shops and restaurants. A favorite place for all four of us was Sweet CeCe's, in the market area. The weather was iffy one day, so we ducked into this shop for a snack. The girls were treated like little princesses by the staff and, had such fun creating their yogurt cups. Great place to get out of the weather and indulge. This is the best frozen yogurt shoppe we've ever been to in the U.S. or in Canada (and yes, we have them here too!).
