Hello friends- how is everybody doing on this fine Wednesday evening?? I myself am writing this from my hotel room in Wild & Wonderful West Virginia as I eat some of the spiciest, most delicious pad thai I have ever had.
As you can see by the title of this post, the food scene here in Charleston, the capital city, is low key pretty good. I’ve posted about a few of the places down here before when I was on the same client here last year, but to spare you from the effort of having to go into my archives, I’ll repeat some of the winners here.
First of all, this mother fucking pad thai. DAMN!!!
I really don’t know if my taste buds are going to recover. Aka, Chow Thai really nailed the spice level. Nothing I hate more than ordering something as spicy and then having some weak shit come out. Let me tell you, this is NOT WEAK. Although it’s super spicy, it doesn’t overpower the other beautiful flavors in here, which is so important to me. I only have a week left on the job down here, so you better believe I’ll be returning at least one more time.
Next- my favorite pizza here, Lola’s.
Yes, my basic ass only took a boomerang of the pie I recently picked up for myself. Sorry not sorryThe pizza pictured in the boomerang above had sausage (perfect mix of sweet and spicy), caramelized onions, and red peppers on it. So good!!!!
Here’s some other pizzas we got when I went with the work squad- I sadly can’t remember the exact combos we threw on there. What I can remember is that they were bomb AF. Lola’s is in this adorable little house and has a ton of different pizza combos as well as a pretty decent local beer selection.
In case you wanted more pizza pics, here is my (close) second favorite pizza place here- Pies n Pints!!
Very similar to the pic I got at Lola’s, and almost equally as delicious. If you ever find yourself at a Pies n Pints, do yourself a favor and get the Chicken Gouda pizza.
Some other notable dishes I’ve enjoyed at various places around here:
Pulled Pork Bruschetta from The Block. They also have really great charcuterie and a nice cheese selection, but I only took a picture of it on Snapchat and forgot to save it 😦 Oh, and holy fuck, some of the best dessert I’ve had in a while- it’s this like fresh, piping hot waffle with caramel drizzled on it and then topped with a scoop of ice cream. God damn!!
Korean spicy chicken wings at Ichiban. Yep. Every bit as delicious as they sound.
I guess I’ve been slacking on my pictures the past few weeks, but some other places I frequent include:
- Tricky Fish– really great pulled pork tacos, solid hush puppies, and some really tasty waffle fries
- Blue Grass Kitchen– get the tofu wings as an appetizer. Trust me.
- Jimmy Johns– lmao, just kidding. But we do get lunch from here a lot.
Anyway, time to get back to work! Thanks for reading 😸
