Bacon donuts, hobby shopping and Graze

We couldn't hit Charleston without a doughnut run.  Joey himself was manning the counter at Joey's Bag a Donuts this weekend.  We ran in for a quick Maple Bacon doughnut fix before hobby shopping.  

I will drive crazy distances to do two things: eat and hobby shop. This weekend we some driving around for both.  After a trip to Summerville to check out the AMAZING scrapbook paper selection at Scrappily Ever After, we hit The Green Dragon (aka nerd heaven) in North Charleston.  Seriously, if you're into comic books or gaming, this is a must for your next trip to Chucktown. My husband is a huge fan of the place.

While he browsed, I flipped through Urban Spoon to locate our next foodie adventure.  I found this place called Graze next to Whole Foods on Mount Pleasant. I read up on the place.  It nailed reviews across the board, so off we went to check it out for ourselves. Supposedly there can be a line out the door, but we walked right in with no problems. 

I ordered the Pulled Pork Tacos with Apple Blue Cheese Slaw and Carolina Gold BBQ Sauce with a side of Pomme Frites (hand cut fries sprinkled with truffle oil and parmesan cheese with a side of roasted garlic aioli for dipping). The flavors in the tacos were fantastic together: sweet, tart, savory... and the fries were near perfection. 

The husband ordered the special, a Cheese Steak Sandwich made from sliced, melt in your mouth tender cut beef, rich cheese and peppers and onions.

Both of our dishes were absolutely delicious.  It's definitely on our list for a return visit for their signature Pulled Pork and Collard Green Mac N Cheese. It's the kind of place you should take a crowd of people so you can sample everyone's food. I'm betting there won't be a disappointed person at your table. 

We seriously ate our way around Charleston, so I have many posts including a return to Husk for you.   In the meantime, I'm hosting a Flat Stanley for a couple of weeks and taking him around on my adventures, so here's a random beach pic:
