Before I begin to share some vacation memories
a quick disclaimer - to all Francophones following Normandy Life
for every reason you love to visit France I probably have a similar one for Hilton Head Island!
The grass is always greener - so the saying goes.
We're just back from our twenty something visit to the Low Country and over the years we've developed certain tastes and habits.
|anchors away @ Hudson's|
As self confessed foodies some of our long time favourite restaurants include ......
Hudson's on the Docks for their fish and chips
and Gruby's New York Deli where we like to split a NY Reuben.
We both love to cook and are always
overwhelmed by the vast array of produce available at The Fresh Market.
Choosing which coffee to buy can sometimes take a while as there are so many blends to savour.
I mentioned in the previous blog post that my fave one this time was
Charleston Coffee Roasters Organic Sumatra.
This trip we also experienced Whole Foods Market
which has replaced dear old Piggly Wiggly in Shelter Cove since our last visit.
Searching out where the locals like to eat is a favourite thing of ours to do.
|A Lowcountry Backyard|
The Low Country Backyard serves up great food.
We liked the flatbread sandwiches:
Charleston fried green tomato; crab cake; and meatloaf (the SP's personal favourite).
The homemade mushroom soup was also delicious.
(We weren't greedy, we dined there twice!)
Another HHI institution, but a new to us restaurant, is Annie O's serving "southern" food.
I tried the tomato pie which was so good.
I've been all over Pinterest to find a recipe to replicate it.
I think I've found one that comes close and plan on fixing it at the weekend.
The final place we discovered is a real hidden gem of a place.
which really should remain a closely guarded secret.
The only problem is that last week I wrote a tripadvisor review for it
and it's already received 256 views!
