Charleston Reprise

I didn't attend on visiting Charleston four times this summer, but there are certainly worse places one could visit. There's a lot to like about the holy city, including the food. We stopped in again at a new fave, The Obstinate Daughter on Sullivan's Island. One of the stars at The OD is the shrimp roll pictured above served with tasty geechie frites.
The Old Danger, a white pie with pancetta, green onion. and farm egg topper. Good stuff.
Required drinking at The OD is the yellow/orange Blood Mary made with local James Island tomatoes.
We also returned to another new fave, Leon's Oyster Shop, in the developing area of north King Street in Charleston. The char-grilled oysters are a good way to start.
 More snacks: Charred shishitos with hoison and sesame.
Fried oyster sandwich with avocado and spicy remoulade.
Leon's shrimp roll topped with chips.
Mr Ma Naugha Ma Hyde looks over Leon's fun and funky space.
Stopped by Westbrook Brewing to visit with the good people cranking out some of the best craft beer on the market these days. Westbrook's tasting room and production facility in Mount Pleasant is an easy 20 minute drive from downtown or the beach. A fun way to spend an afternoon.
We did some locavore cooking in this crab boil with blue crabs pulled from the marshes behind the house. Good stuff.
Early fall-low country morning. The best. Until next time, Charleston.
