I ordered the beach bum and the jazzy pizza and split them with a friend. They are both incredible! It is so much food. We had 1/2 the pizza for breakfast the next day. Normally I'm suspicious of any establishment that labels one their products "goddess" but you cannot hold that against the sauce. The sauce deserves a grand title because it compliments everything. It is October and the tomatoes were more delicious than I remember them being in the summer!??!! They use sriracha perfectly, discerningly. The greens are perfect, never bitter. I like the Black Bean Co. but put head-to-head with Dellz Deli- DELLZ. every. time.
Sure you might have to wait... but in this case it's worth it. Great price to size ratio goin' on and they are always beyond nice. The puzzle games always make me feel like my sandwhich comes with a side of "I'm stupid" but that's a me problem not a Dellz problem! If you don't want to hang out there just call ahead! It will be ready.
I've been to Bon Banh Mi three times so far. Consistently tasty every time. I prefer the tacos over the sandwich
Got a bag of sandwiches to go and they were amazingly good. Great spot, cool people.
Just had the Fried Chicken Banh Mi Sandwich for lunch. It was the BEST THING I've eaten this year. $10 for the sandwich + $1 for tax and a cup of water. Pricey, but well worth a visit at least once a month. I didn't like the hummus appetizer.
I found it delicious, but the portions are on the small side. The sandwich was a hot dog size for $8.50, with no side. They just need to tweak it, and it could be an institution.
Congratulations Jason & Jeremy! ! I agree best bahn mi in town! Thanks Aaron Richard for the great compliments on the bread! To find out more about your new village baker, check out this facebook link! https://www.facebook.com/ilpanedivita
Without a doubt, the best new spot in town. My wife and I are BIG fans. Aaron, you are right, the beef short rib is the bomb. It's tender and has just enough spice.
great food, small portions, took $17 to fill up, limited menu
The folks from Street Hero have finally opened up a brick and mortar location just off King Street and we are so glad they did. If you have had the pleasure of enjoying one of their Banh Mi's at the Charleston Farmer's Market, you now have the good fortune to enjoy these any day of the week (except Monday). The store is clean and bright and the staff was on top of it when we joined them for dinner. Everyone was engaging and passionate about what they were doing and it came through in the finished product. There is beer and wine available as well if you want to stay a while.
This little sandwich bar makes it simple to enjoy the Vietnamese specialty of Banh Mi. Their menu is straight forward - choose a vehicle for delivery of amazing flavor and then choose what it will be filled/topped with. They offer salads, but we opted to sample a variety of their tacos and traditional sandwiches. The tacos are double wrapped corn tortillas griddled to a nice exterior texture. They were good, but we both felt that the corn flavor from the tortillas was a bit too prominent in the dish, robbing a little from the otherwise delicious filling. But the bread....oh man the bread. According to the owner, their rolls are baked by someone local who shall remain nameless. I would compare the rolls to the texture of a Cuban bread, thin crusty exterior and a pillowy-soft interior. I noticed when Jason was assembling our sandwiches he even pulled out the center of the roll, an often overlooked step that is so important. Both incarnations came with the same array of fresh condiments, including pickled carrots and radishes, lots of fresh cilantro and basil, spicy mayo, and a crunchy topping of fried onions.
We tried their 'fillins' of country pate and ham, five spice pork, red curry beef shortrib, and ginger lemongrass chicken. The flavors of each were unique and bold, and it's nice that they offer such a range because each of these really provides a totally different experience texturally. The beef shortrib was so rich and tender, I wanted a bowl of it. The pork was very nicely spiced, but it is a ground meat so we didn't love this one as much due to the lack of structure in the sandwich. The chicken was juicy and had a great flavor, bright with lemon and ginger, but lacked the richness we love so much in a Banh Mi. Which leads us to the winner - the pate and Vietnamese ham combo was our favorite as a cohesive sandwich. This was truly a perfect Banh Mi in the classic way. If you have never had one before, I would start here to get the baseline of what this sandwich is supposed to be. All of the other variations are done very well and it is well worth your time to sample the whole gamut.
This is the best bagel in Charleston. Whoever is behind the baking definitely knows what they're doing and consistently cranks out perfect bagels every time. In addition to the bagels, they make all their own flavored cream cheeses in house which have all been delicious. They have a menu of amazing breakfast and lunch sandwiches or you can build your own out of their deli case. I also love that they offer Taylor Ham which I had never tried before a friend recommended it to me and now I cannot turn back. Give it a try griddled with an egg and cheese on a bagel - you will thank me. Also they offer fresh Nova lox which is nearly impossible to find at a bagel shop around here.
They have a full espresso bar as well as delicious Intelligenista house coffee and fresh squeezed orange juice. The only critique I would offer is the size of the dining room is rather tiny. So if you go doing a prime time, I would probably plan on getting your food to go. But wherever you sit down to enjoy your food, you will not be disappointed!
This is my new favorite place in town. The papaya thai salad special was the best thing I can remember having in a long time!
I went with some friends for brunch a couple of weeks ago and was unimpressed. The food was very good but the prices are absurd. $12 for a pimento cheese omelet that doesn't come with a side is frankly ridiculous. Glass Onion's is better and costs $8. Entering orders on the iPad was obnoxiously slow and screamed trendy zealot. Coupled with the decor featuring purposefully mismatched seating, sparse communal tables, and bare Edison bulbs, it added up to trying too hard.
I loved the food, the atmosphere is okay if you're facing away from the glaring bare bulbs, but it's just too expensive.
Easily one of the best spots in Charleston.
Wow, Park Circle has become so trendy that it's residents look down their noses at Moncks Corner. Not defending his attack on B&B, but just maybe there's something to shocksplicer's disdain for "hipsters".
The people who are afraid of the part of town B&B is in are the people that still think everything north of John should be avoided, or you might meet "those people." Sad, sad, sad
Since when are men (Shocksplicer) afraid of bad parts of town? You write too well to be from Moncks Corner, so you might be living the "safe" dream in Daniel Island. Where might your restaurant be, so we can come enjoy the large portioned Honky Tonk experience? The last 5 years in Charleston have been the best growth anyone here has ever seen in the arts and food. If that yields beards and skinny jeans, embrace it because as our modern city grows, as does the mindset of the locals.
Thanks, City Paper readers! We're pumped to win this in the "Best Food Truck" category's inaugural year---even though winning "Best Rolling Food Machine" last year was awesome as well. Come celebrate with us on the streets! Follow us on Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/roti.rolls), Twitter (@rotirolls) or iheartrotirolls.com to see where we're rolling next. It would be awesome if you City Paper folks could update our contact info as well : )
Well shocksplicer, I'll give you some credit. You actually almost sounded like you were attempting a personal review, but then you channeled the powers of Rick Santorum and made it more about some deep rooted predisposed hatred. Predisposition will not contribute anything in terms of adding feedback. Did one of ShemTov's ancestors steal land from your family or something?
My partner, a friend and I went to Tattooed Moose last night for the first time. The corn dogs were probably the best I have ever had and the smoky tomato soup was delicious. We got the Reuben, Cuban and duck club and they were all excellent. I loved the fries but I couldn't tell they had been cooked in duck fat. The aioli was a tasty addition.
So why the two-star review if I loved everything? The service was awful. After we seated ourselves a young woman came by and dropped menus. We asked for water while we looked at the menus and I asked about their beer list, which was on the back of the menu. She came back in about 10 seconds with the water and we asked for a few more minutes. She cheerfully said "Take your time" ... and she never came back. She brought food to tables near us and walked past a handful of times, but never even looked at our table and never stopped. Finally she ensconced herself at the short bar to the left of the door to the kitchen, staring intently at something on the bar and ignoring everything else around her.
The friend who was with me finally walked up to her to ask about ordering beers and food. She handed my friend the beer and said she would be right over for the food order. As my friend turned around the server went back to whatever she was staring at on the bar and never budged. My friend sat down, looked at her in disbelief, and said she was reading the menu.
Finally the bartender, Ryan, walked over and asked if we wanted to order food. From there the service was okay, but the damage was done. You simply don't pointedly ignore customers for 15 to 20 minutes.
