A Culinary Foodventure: Charleston Chowdown

Now that I've been in Charleston for two months, I think I'm starting to understand this city.  I love it for so many reasons: the weather, the bridges [there's only one or two ways to get anywhere, so I can't get lost!], my job, all of the different adventures to go on with Mike, the heritage [History major nerd alert] and the food.

In the order of Charleston fame, the culinary distinction comes right after the rich history and right before the well-mannered people.  Needless to say, it's a pretty big component of daily life.  In the lowcountry Greater Charleston area [Charleston + Mount Pleasant] there are over 1,000 restaurants.  So, we came up with a fun idea.  Every time we go to a new restaurant, we'll snap a couple of photos and review it for all y'all!  I call it: Charleston Chowdown.
Even the fountains are shaped like food!
Because I don't think Mike and I will be going to a different restaurant every single day for almost 3 years, I obviously will not be reviewing all of them in the city, but with the help of friends and coworkers to lead us to the right places, of course, Trip Advisor, hopefully we will have some great ones to share!

I live here too and we're always trying new (to us) restaurants- can't wait to see where all you go :)

That sounds like a great way to learn the city and explore new places to eat. I fully support this decision! ;)

Try The Blind Tiger if you haven't already. A grilled pimento cheese sandwich and fried green tomatoes. Amazing.

We're going to Charleston next week! I think husband has already picked out a couple restaurants (that's his favorite part of vacation planning).
