During my Spring Break and my sister’s Spring Training, my family and I had a one day adventure in Charleston, South Carolina. We walked around the small city, seeing the market, Fort Sumter, and other sites. Charleston felt incredibly quaint and dainty – houses and roads are perfectly groomed and the architecture is charming.
For our dinner, my sister made us a reservation at Husk, a restaurant that takes a new twist on Southern food. In 2011, it was named Bon Appétit’s Best New Restaurant in America. Our dinner was delicious, though some dishes were better than others. The most disappointing was the scallop appetizer (which was bland), but all of the other dishes were tastefully composed and concocted an interesting combination of flavors, new and old. The prices are not cheap, but I would say it was worth it.
The Pickling Room
Here’s a taste of what we had:
Cheerwine with dinner, of course.
This was, in my opinion, the best dish we had:
and the worst…
We had heard that the Husk cornbread is very good and we were very excited. My sister was disappointed in its lack of corn flavor, but I liked the savory taste from the bacon and its incredibly buttery texture.
And because we love food, despite the fact that our bellies were very very full, we ventured to get dessert.
This was my first experience in the South, nonetheless my first dining experience. I’m ready to return to try some more.
