Fresh fish Yes .....but no waffles.
Case in point: I have driven by this corner location for about 14 years. It's on Remount Road in North Charleston, on the edge of Hanahan.
For most of that time it was a paint & body shop.
Then that closed. For a long, long time.
Saw some workers there recently and some equipment being hauled inside.
Ta-Da. Fulford Fish is now open for business.
Fresh seafood in one door and take-away plates and sandwiches in the other.
Spoke with A.J. Fulford, the owner (he also had the auto repair business there) and he suggested I try the very, very fresh scallops.
Or the local shrimp.
Crab legs too.
Did I mention the Blue Claw Crabs?
When I'm out dining, I usually ask if the shrimp are "local" and I've heard various answers.
I like YES, they are! None of that "Well, sure.....from the Gulf."
Apparently I have not been paying close attention when I'm driving on Savannah Highway/
How could I have missed Boxcar Betty's.
As their site says, they offer high end chicken sandwiches. Check out the menu.
I was embarrassed to find they've been open about 8 months. In my defense, I have been on a diet that is not too excited about "fried."
Close by is Early Bird Diner where I had my first chicken & waffles.
So I asked and the young lady at the register pointed to the large menu printed on a wall.
Looks like they had sized up the competition and were staying with their target of high-end fried chickens on an array of sandwiches.
Don't think they would make me one with grilled chicken.
And at Bay Street Biergarten.
Hmm. You'd think you could get that interesting combo at Waffle House or Huddle House?
(Click on the photos for more details.)
Before I started the diet, I was getting into craft beers.
Plenty of THAT going on around here. And, of course, my heritage of fried, fried, fried.
Well I like the weight loss and being able to keep it off.
Mmmm. A golden waffle, melted butter and syrup.
I miss fried.
