Re: “Meet the roasters, bean brokers, and K-cup creators fueling Charleston’s craft coffee addiction

I love the way the "roasters" are creating a demand for really fancy, and expensive, coffee. I guess it is worth it, but the incredibly fresh coffee at places like Sunoco, Circle K, and other large, busy gas stations is perfectly tasty, hot, and relatively well priced. My father, who was 85 when he died, said coffee should not ever be more than 25cents a cup, and refills free. The cost for preparing a cup of coffee is pretty cheap, but all the foofa and bells and whistles really make folks think that the expensive brews are really great. Each to his own.

Re: “Charleston chefs explain what makes deviled eggs the perfect bar food

I just finished making about 2 dozen deviled eggs, simple receipt, and about a gallon of egg salad. Again a rather simple set of ingredients. The reason why? Walmart has been running a special on their 18 count large eggs, at .77 per container! Probably a lost leader, but while they are on sale, I"m going to make lots of stuff. I give away most of it, but egg salad, with dill pickle relish, mayo, small amount of mustard (Coleman's) and finely chopped red onions , on whole wheat bread, is fantastic. When you decide to do some cookin', be sure the eggs are at least 2 weeks old (kept in the fridge), so they peel easier.

Re: “Two Boroughs Larder closing after five years in business

I give you guys so much credit. It took just as much courage to end this as it did to start. But truly, real life is what you have as a family. Your relationship. Your unspoken connection. The rest is just details. All the very best to you.

What a sick person! Needs to be locked up for a long time in mental institution. I love this store and will continue to shop there.

Re: “Eating local isn't always better

I moved to Charleston five years ago. It was new years day. Everything was closed except TGIFridays. For my $18, with every other restaurant closed, I have never tasted better parmesan chicken. Havent been back since.

Hey Kate! I know I know, hastily edited. But, if you know the precise album I'm quoting from, then I will grovel.

Re: “Eating local isn't always better

Hey Mr. Howard, Papa Zoli's if I may. Thank you so much for the offer of the free dinner! I will definitely take you up on that. Btw, I am ready to be the face of Fazoli's, let me do for unlimited breadsticks what Flo did for Progressive. Except I'm funnier and you can pay me in Submarinos+Bit Coin.

Have my people (which is me), get in touch with your people.

Re: “Warehouse's Chef Jason Daly reveals his new menu tonight

Of all the "celebrities" he could have chosen, Thomas R. would have been my last choice. I hope this new restaurant does well, but decorating steak tartare up like a Christmas ornament just so you can charge an outlandish price seems a bit silly in this town where the chefs are constantly trying to outdo the others. I don't think my budget will be able to afford this place.

Re: “Eating local isn't always better

Goddammit I miss Fazoli's! I just might weep bitterly as I step out and say this... I lament the loss every time I ride by that pitiful shell so awkwardly left to fade away in that nightmare of a parking lot on Sam Ritt.

Re: “Eating local isn't always better

Fazolis always provided parking for their employees. You don't get that from the farm nor the table, locavore or not. That's just science.

Re: “Eating local isn't always better

The breadsticks are the only good thing they make. My 6 yr old can make a better marinara. The food is bland for Italian food and that's kind of hard to do. Granted it taste as good as most, not all "insert local town name" house of pizza. There's gotta be a better example for the stories front-runner like the cracker barrel bit is spot on
