Truly an icon, we love this guy! He completes our Saturday morning farmers market jaunts with his cart o' deliciousness. Summertime floods in with bold and juicy favorites that are full of flavor. Strawberry Basil, Thai Tea, Honeysuckle Lime, Hibiscus Pom, Fruity Pebbles, Salted Caramel the list goes on and on with flavors constantly changing with what is fresh and ripe at that time. True, its frozen but you can be sure it was only frozen a week ago at most. I don't know how he keeps up with the demand. Inventive and constantly throwing me a curve ball with new flavors, I have a hard time staying steady with my all-time favorites and am known to cheat on them with the flirty new flavor of the day. The King is keeping it local by using local products and we love that. At Pet Fest, he even made dog cups too. (Our dog Mojo loved his!) Make room in your day to find his cart (I believe he tweets locations)...it'll be a sweet 10 minutes of me time (and perhaps your dog too if you share.)
Consistently fresh seafood and cheap prices bring us back to Wando frequently. We have purchased shrimp, oysters, flounder, sea bass, and sheepshead from them, and always enjoyed the meal. The staff is always kind and cheerful. I am glad we have a hidden spot like this in Mt P.
Rita has transformed our backyard into a garden producing veggies, flowers, and fruits year-round. Her knowledge of organic agriculture is vast and her enthusiasm is contagious! We highly recommend Rita's Backyard Harvest program to bring the most healthy and delicious bounty to your table!
I saw in the Moultrie News we missed an opportunity to purchase shrimp baskets and benefit local fisherman. Everyone I know in the area would love this opportunity. Please "friend" me or something and I will pass the word along when you host another event like this!!
Garlic crabs we're delicious. Wish it was a small restaurant where you could sit and enjoy your food. It's still a good place to swing by and pick something up.
This coffee is simply the freshest most delicious coffee available.
This is an awesome place to run in and grab a bite to eat or pick up some fresh seafood. The cooks are awesome here!!! Shame they don't have a bigger kitchen and more crew, they could be ruling the lowcountry!
They changed how good my recipes taste!
My faves are the African 5 Spice & Espresso Steak Rub (I even put this in Pasta Sauce!)
Amazing sandwiches and tons of great local produce / grocery!
I came up with the name 'Porter, Smoked' and now I've been banished to the Commonwealth of Northern Marianas Islands, very far from all that delicious beer. Wish I'd thought of a more creative title for such a heady brew. All they have out here is San Miguel and Red Horse. Maybe I can find some fresh tuba on Guam... I <3 Saipan! Cheers Dave & Jamie
BY FAR my favorite grocery store in Charleston. They have the freshest meat and produce in town. I know that anything I buy there is going to be of the best quality.
So glad the prices come down on the garlic crabs now that they're in abundance.....also have fresh local shrimp and they are good...nothing like fresh seafood from our coast....the garlic crabs can be messy but are great and enjoyed them very much....
Wonderful space for an event. Went to a Guerrilla Cuisine dinner there a couple of weeks ago and was surprised at how pretty the distillery hardware looks with the right lighting and how warm and comfortable the space was - especially for a warehouse and work site, at that (the bathrooms are a literally shining example). A few strategically placed pieces of art (big works well) and beautifully set tables were all that was needed to transform what would be a cavernous area in the back into a really cool, even elegant, venue. I know others worked hard to make that transformation and I WAS under the influence of some fabulous food, but the end result of GC & others' efforts highlighted the possibilities of the distillery space itself. The Striped Pig people proved very hospitable folks, dedicated to their craft and eager to share the process & results with willing fans. Sampled some powerful but oddly delicious moonshine & a more finished product. It is obvious that a great deal of thought went into making this space a welcoming place to hang out, whether for an event or just a visit.
This will be my second time visiting Middleton Gardens and I can't wait. I intend to use Omega Transportation as my ride ( since I can save 10% on a round trip) and I will tour the gardens after the demonstrations. I know the gardens will be beautiful this time of year. And I won't have to fight the traffic, so I am really excited.
I was there and loved the performace. It was VERY hot though! - JA
Vegetarian and health friendly, fairly priced, fun tastes throughout the store, fresh produce, an amazing cheese selection, good variety of fresh bulk spices and fresh wholesome selection of fish and organic meats (if that's your pref) Add free cooking classes ample parking and in town location, and that adds up to a review summarized by "thank goodness I found it when I moved here!"
Mike is rude and disrespectful to his business neighbors. He shows no respect for the people around him in the Warehouse he works out of. I highly recommend that no one supports such a rude businessman here in Summerville.
peanuts are decent, Mike Shaughnessey is about as rude as they come. Typical NJ yankee coming down to the south to sell us fried food and talk terribly about our lifestyle. Hightly recommend you do not give your business to this hypocrite. He needs to take his negative attitude back to the north
Total Garbage. Do not get a CSA from them. They claim they grow their own produce, but alas, all they grow is more and more paranoid and resentful. When asked where the produce came from they claimed it was from their farm. I went on a tour of the farm and there is nothing growing there. At all.
I should have posted this comment a long time ago. As I drove by Christophe Artisan Chocolatier today, and was reminded of the terrible experience I had with the people who own this business, and I needed to vent about it.
In 2011, I purchased a Groupon coupon for $40.00 assortment of Christophe's chocolates. The deal was run just before Valentine's Day, so I decided to use my coupon on chocolates for my boyfriend, who is a chocoholic. When I called in a week before the holiday, I was told that the chocolatier was swamped with Valentine's Day orders, and they wouldn't be able to fill my order at that time. I understood how busy they were, and decided to redeem my coupon at a later date.
I called them several times, and each time I was given the runaround. I was told to call another number, but no one answered the phone at that phone number. At one point someone took my phone number and promised to call me back. No one called me back, and after numerous unsuccessful attempts to redeem my coupon, I gave up. So I was out $20.00.
If business owners offer Groupon deals and take our money, they should be responsible enough to make good on the deal we bought.
