That moment you realize @dapschs turned your favorite cereal growing up into a sticky bun 🙌🏾. The Cinnamon Toast Crunch Sticky Bun: Brown Butter Maple Glaze Hawaiian Roll with Banana Creme and @cinnamontoastcrunch. #breakfastgoals
New favorite lunch plate at @butcherandbee? The Hummus Bowl with Chicken Shawarma. #chseats
Searching for a new dinner spot in Charleston? @greg__garrison and the team over at @prohibitionchs are putting out some incredible food right now, including this Tandoori Cauliflower with @lowcountrycreamery yogurt.
Last week I had the opportunity to attend the fragrance launch dinner for my friends of @nakedeyesjewelry at @millergallerychs. It was truly a memorable experience as each fragrance was accompanied by a both a dish prepared by Chef Justin of @amor_healing_kitchen (go check them out right now if you haven’t, absolutely amazing organization here in Charleston) & a playlist of songs inspired by the scent. It’s always so fun seeing friends realize their dreams. Congrats again @nakedeyesjewelry!
Always love seeing what’s new on the ever evolving menu at @chubbyfishchs. Poached Triggerfish with Spring Onion Dashi and Veggies from @spadeandclover & @rosebankfarms.
Today I’m taking over @lowcountrylocal on Instagram Stories for Eat Local Month! We hear the term “Farm to Table” often, but don’t usually get to see what that really means. Im taking you behind the scenes to show you how that happens here in Charleston with @growfoodcarolina and @basic_kitchen. Follow along at @lowcountrylocal today for more!
What’s for dinner: Grandma Slices from @uneedasicilian. Have to admit I’ve been a two Cheese slicer since they’ve opened (also one of the best lunch deals downtown for only $5!)- but the Sausage & Rabe is a must have.
Kowloon is home to some of the most interesting bars in Hong Kong, including @terriblebaby at @eatonworkshop. My cocktail of choice? “This Guy”, a fruit loops infused vodka cocktail with cinnamon cocci americano bianco and banana liquor. #hongkong
Spending the week in one of my favorite places to visit, China and Hong Kong. First stop was to Guandong for Steamed Hotpot. This variant of traditional hotpot has rapidly been gaining popularity in China.
Had an absolutely incredible meal at @maisonbistrochs, the new French bistro on King Street by Vandy Vanderwarker and Will Love. Although we did order most of the menu, the highlight for me was the Roasted Chicken served with macaroni gratin and black truffle-chicken jus. Such a fantastic addition to Charleston- definitely recommend adding it to your list.
If you’re on King Street during the weekend looking for late night eats, @2nixons ramen at @proofonking is always a solid choice. #charleston #chseats
90’s Hip-Hop + Cocktails make for a great night. A few scenes from the Gin & Jewels Pop-Up with @sutlersspiritco / @moverandshakerco at @gin_joint.
Charleston’s @elpinchotaco is one of the latest Mexican restaurants in town, and a new personal favorite. Family owned and run, personal recipes fill the menu, with homemade salsas and some of the best tacos I’ve had in Charleston.
Weekends are a great time to go explore new places in #Charleston. My latest favorite stop? @doarbros, a new cocktail bar on Meeting Street, with @meganmakesdrinks behind the bar. The cocktail list is impressive, but I went for their take in a classic, The Doar Bros. Manhattan. But no matter what you order, be sure to get the Brown Butter Popcorn with Truffle Salt.
It’s only been a week since @chswineandfood, and I’m already excited for 2020. Such an amazing few days of incredible food, drinks and new experiences. Thanks again for following, here are a few other scenes from the week. What were your favorite events this year?
Sunday Brunch is always a favorite of mine, and yesterday’s @indacochas Rosé Brunch for @chswineandfood was one to remember. Chef Michael Holler creates a 4-course meal each with their own Rosé pairing, including this Blueberry Sorbetto with @jansztasmania Brut. #chswff
