How to Gain 15 Pounds in 5 Days
How to gain 15 Pounds in 5 Days…in Charleston.
I know, this is not a typical headline. Usually it's the opposite of what most headlines read but, I found this article about some local restaurant favorites in Charleston and whether you live here or are heading here for vacation- these are a few must eats.
“Charleston is a foodie town,” locals are fond of saying. The locals will say it when you ask for a restaurant reccomendation,when they’re rehashing last night’s dinner out or when happy hour starts to wind down and it’s time to plan the evening’s next move. Charleston is a foodie town.” And they're not wrong. Truly, the city's restaurant options are not only enticing, they're also seemingly endless — so much so that we felt like we only scratched the surface — we didn't even get a chance to eat at half the places on our list, including Cannon Green, Two Boroughs Larder, Zero Cafe, and Edmund's Oast. Still, over our recent five day visit we managed to eat and drink enough that we felt the need to go on an Ayurvedic cleanse when we got back to New York. Because while it's true that Charleston is a "foodie town," it's also true that Charleston is very much a Southern town. For every "farm to table" ingredient listed on the menu, there's also a fair amount of butter, cream, cheese, and salt to go with it — and plenty of stiff drinks to wash it all down.
Which, for the most part, is all totally worth it. Below, are a few of the local spots….
