Wow! On Saturday night we had one of the best meals we've ever had in Charleston at Al Di La.

Elliott Summey sure has a way with words, doesn't he?
We were glad to hear that a new restaurant opened on Johns Island, and we're really glad we stopped in at Angel Oak Restaurant on Friday night. The restaurant's interior is comfortable and inviting. Nicole (the owner) greeted us and made us feel at home by bringing a jar of boiled peanuts to our table. We ordered two appetizers --- the fried bacon and the lobster mac and cheese and both were delicious. For our entrees I chose the Beef Short Ribs (red wine-braised with thyme demi-glace over stone ground grits) and my significant other ordered the Shrimp Carbonara (with tender local shrimp and house-made pasta). We loved both dishes.
We like everything about the place --- the ambiance, the wonderful food and the great service we received.
Next Sunday we're going to try Angel Oak's brunch!
Best sandwiches around! The iced Chai tea is really, really good....
Steamed Pork Bun: 5 stars
Smoke Chicken Wings: 5 stars
Meatball Sandwich: 5 stars
Fingerling Potatoes with Gorgonzola: 5 stars
And on Friday nights they're on Johns Island!!!!
Best brunch ever! We tried the sweet almond tamales, the rosemary pancakes and the chilaquiles. We can't pick a favorite because everything was so good. Try the rosemary pancakes --- they are incredibly delicious.
