Re: “Go for the hummus at Istanbul Shish Kabobs

First of all, I would like to ask: what did this restaurant ever do to Vanessa Wolf to deserve such a scathing, demeaning review? This restaurant never attempts to compare itself to a James Beard award winning chef-of-a-restaurant. It's homestyle, comfort food. It's family owned- not fancy trained chef food. It's not pretentious. It's delicious, comforting, delightful in all the right ways. And I am proud to give them my hard earned dollar, because the people preparing and making the food from scratch deserve it. It's fresh, it's prepared right in front of you. Compared to most of the southern style eateries around here, I would venture to say it's even a healthier choice rather than "gritty & greasy" like Wolf claims. I feel like this review was highly unfair, biased towards the fancy American owned establishments of downtown Charleston rather than good down-home cooking. I would argue that Charleston does not have a diverse enough food scene, so why give this restaurant that actually adds something new so much grief? In a trump era presidency, where diversity from the middle east is on the line, a review like this could serious hurt a whole family's livelihood. Support this business, and when you're there, get the mixed grill platter and add grilled vegetables and the spicy grilled tomato salad. Charleston City paper: rethink who you want covering small, family run ethnic restaurants such as these.
