    About Time for a Chinese

Hominy, Humming [On The Road: Charleston]

I couldn't leave Charleston without going to Hominy Grill. The place is a landmark if you want to try Southern cuisine, home food, like the one some grandma in Charleston used to prepare, no cans, all made from scratch from local ingredients. The Kitchen under the command of James Beard Award winner chef/owner Robert Stehling (Best Southeast Chef in 2008). On top of that Anthony Bourdain visited the place in the No Reservations episode “South Carolina” to enjoy the big nasty. 

The place
Love the place, warm, rustic, white, simple country side décor. It is so good I went twice one for lunch the second chance for breakfast. First stop got a cup of the chicken and sausage gumbo with jasmine rice, nice, good seasoning, as side boiled peanuts in salt water, they were superb, completely different, finally the dark side of the moon of the southern cuisine shrimp and grits, excellent flavour, nice heath, the bacon went amazing with the shrimp, shrimps cooked to perfection, the grits remind me a homemade polenta, excellent dish, nothing pretentious but full of flavour. 

Gumbo and peanuts
Shrimp and grits
Second stop big nasty time, just awesome, chicken nicely battered and fried, biscuit was puffy and spongy, cheddar to add more flavour to the combination, sausage gravy was pretty good, and all together was complete harmony.

Great food in a great place as Charleston. 

Gumbo time
By know I'm sure you know what Shrimp reminds me, yes the Seinfeld episode “The Comeback” 

Bill: Well, if the big man wants a new scoreboard, I don't want to be the one to tell him no 
Reilly: No one in the park is going to be able to see it from there 
George: Well, why don't we just put a monitor in his skybox? 
Reilly: Hey George, the ocean called. They're running outta shrimp
