Eat your way through the Holy City.
Is food your *fave* part of traveling?
Same, tbh. And while Charleston, South Carolina probably brings to mind a gorgeous historic district and sunny beaches, it also has a burgeoning food scene full of hidden gems.
We asked the people over at Yelp to weigh in on the most delicious and highly-rated things. So, here's everything you should eat in Charleston:
The lowcountry shrimp roll with Geechie frites from The Obstinate Daughter:
« The Shrimp Roll (think lobster roll with shrimp salad) was simple in the best way. Absolutely delicious, and the ideal portion size. This was served with Geechie frites, which were sort of French toast stick-shaped bars of fried Geechie Boy (local) grits. » —Clare S.
« I had the shrimp roll with Geechie frites. The roll was toasted to perfection and was filled with wonderful shrimp. The Geechie frites were so good I ordered another round for the table. » —Chris C.

The brisket from Swig & Swine:
« This brisket doesn't need sauce. Seriously legit BBQ! Texans in SC should make sure they try this place. » —Chris M.
« A range of barbecue sauces were in front of me, but the brisket didn't need it. Juicy and tender. The only reason I used the knife was to prevent myself from sticking the whole slice of brisket in my mouth. » —Stasj T.

Bone marrow bread pudding from The Macintosh:
« If there is anything you do here, anything at all, it MUST be to order the bone marrow bread pudding. It is simply the most decadent, rich, creamy, heavenly, divine thing you may ever eat. » —Dianna S.
« The marrow bread pudding!!! Never thought a meat marshmallow would my favorite thing on a menu, but this is it. » —Kari H.
