dining out @ Poogan’s Porch (Charleston, SC)

July 3, 2013 § Leave a comment

My family and I just returned from our third vacation in Folly Beach, South Carolina, a laid back surfing beach just a short drive from historic downtown Charleston.  While we are there, we enjoy a week of fabulous cuisine.  My absolute favorite restaurant?  Poogan’s Porch on Queen Street, a beautiful home that even has its own ghost story.  I’m kind of obsessed.  We ate there twice, the bookends to a great week.

Here’s a sampling of our delicious eats:

Image

biscuits. Each meal at Poogan’s begins with the arrival of fresh baked biscuits with butter.  Lots of butter.  And guess what?  If you ask for more biscuits, they bring you more.

Image

fried green tomatoes with pecan encrusted goat cheese and peach chutney.

Image

pimiento cheese fritters with green tomato jam.

Image

I mean, look at this cheesy goodness!  Going to try to replicate this.

Image

plantation fried chicken, stuffed with smoked gouda, spicy collards, and country ham. served with mashed potatoes and some greens!

Image

shrimp and grits.  served with tri-colored peppers, vidalia onions, spicy sausage, Tasso ham and blue crab gravy.

Image

calabash style seafood combination platter.  this is my dish!  i substitute more oysters and shrimp in place of flounder.  lightly dusted, super fresh, tender, and flavorful.

Image

pimiento cheese slaw.  the perfect accompaniment to the seafood platter, along with housemade kettle chips.

Image

chef isaac’s she-crab soup.  with a spicy kick of chive oil!

Image

macaroni and cheese.  a generous serving for a side dish.  pretty much perfection.

I will look forward to my next meal at Poogan’s!
