Live in Charleston SC. Love Life, Family and Food!
This is a really cool spot! My husband and I are now regulars. We have tried almost everything on the menu and are thouroughly satisfied. Things are definately different from your typical Mexican restaurants so don't bring your preconcieved notions about what you think it should be. Instead, be open to trying some great quality, creative food.
I really enjoyed my brunch experience. I had the fried green tomato app and the apple and duck sausage gratin. Very rich, very yummy!
I think the article was right on. My husband and I have been to Caliente numerous times and love the fresh take they have on Mexican Food. We have almost been through the entire menu. You can tell everything is homemade and not out of a can. Ya, there is vinegar in the salsa and the pico, and it is sooo yummy. The chips are crispy and airy, perfect for enveloping the spicy goodness. The brisket Chimi and the citrus chicken Relleno are to die for! The relleno is a stuffed baked Pablano Pepper, not the usual mushy piece of a bell pepper.
THEY ARE DIFFERENT!
If you are looking for creative Latin inspired food with a Low Country twist, this is your place. Don't expect you typical Charleston Mexican and you won't be disappointed.
Caliente, you are pioneers, keep up the good work!
Yes, local here in Charleston is difficult! I try and love to spend where I live. I think we are getting closer but we are a long way from it being easy for Charlestonians. I feel like the farmers and artisans should have a huge in door market to supply to. Maybe one day, if I had the money I would do it myself.
