Heyy Kab Kitchen followers! Kab Kitch mom here, filling in for a very sick Kab Kitchen. (She’s on the mend…so no worries!) Actually, I’m probably more like her partner in crime since we are such kindred foodies; and yes, that often spells trouble! So here goes….reviewing our recent food trip to South Carolina! Don’t worry…no segments from “As the Stomach churns”!
Greenville, South Carolina is a must go for foodies. They have so many options in the downtown area…where to start?! Well, we started at Spill the Beans, for a wonderful cup of java. Insider tip: Take your cup outside for a stroll in the Reedy Falls Park down below. Simply beautiful! Next stop, hit Rick’s Deli for a salad and sandwich…and while you’re in the area, why not hit up the west end of the shopping district for some fab one of a kind items. After power shopping, you probably could use a pick me up? Sounds nice, doesn’t it? Try the Lazy Goat for a glass of vino outside by the river. You get a great view of the city and a fine glass of whatever works for you. I ask you: what really could be better? Ah, Refreshed?… head into the heart of downtown and you will find a plethora of restaurants and shops….oh and I almost forgot, if you follow a healthy lifestyle like most Kab Kitchen followers, you cannot miss the Lulemon across from the Goat. (Wow…shouldn’t have gone in there…if you know what I mean!!!) Where to for dinner? Oh my I knew it would come to this sooner than later and there were just too many choices…..compounded by the fact that I didn’t have any reservations and it was a balmy 80 degree evening—two factors that would, however, decide it for me. I had to sit outside and there had to be availability. Soby’s it is! I was not disappointed!! Pre-sick Kab had shrimp and grits…I had scallops. So good! But wait for it….the desserts were perhaps even better. Ever had a fine pavlova? If not, you’ll find it here. Crusty, creamy>>>pavlova lovers, you know what I’m talking about here. Kab had the creme brulee…it was a stunner.
The day is fast coming to a close but I’m not yet ready to call it a day. The sun is down and all of the trees are sparkling with little white lights all along main street downtown….breathtaking! I’ve seen many a downtown area; and trust me, Greenville is one of the cleanest and most aesthetically pleasing. It does not disappoint. Such a wonderful experience today, maybe a night cap to finish it off is in order…so slipped into Sip! You take the elevator up one floor and it opens to a wine emporium! Wines available for dispensing via self-serve …wow! You decide what and how much…no waiting for a bartender here. I like that idea, don’t you? Around the corner, they have a terrace on the roof top that is filled with sofas and lounge chairs and more lights. Kab kitch would’ve loved it! This is an experience I can highly recommend. Finally…time to call it a night. All in all, a great day in SC! Thanks for coming along. Kab will be returning Tuesday…it’s been fun filling in! Happy eats where ever you are! :)
