During one of our trips to the South Carolina coast, the wait was too long at Poogan’s Porch so we decided to try the original Husk restaurant. The light yellow facade exterior of the restaurant paired with the haint blue porch ceiling is quintessential Charleston.
We got reservations on Resy to avoid a long wait which was a good idea. The restaurant is a two story house. We were seated on the second floor. It was larger than it appeared from the exterior.
The service was excellent-helpful but not intrusive. It took a while for our food to come but the place was hopping. The sweet tea was perfect. Yes, I drink sweet tea for breakfast. #TrueSouthernGirl
The Main Event
I had the Wood Fired Brioche French Toast with Blueberries and Lemon Curd topped with Maple Syrup, Whipped Cream and Powdered Sugar. My only complaint was that there wasn’t more of it on my plate. It was the type of meal that you don’t want to end.
Pros and Cons
The cons of Husk are the wait times (it’s popular for good reason) and the prices. My inner cheapness couldn’t bring myself to order the overpriced but probably tasty bacon or another side when the entree was close to $20. It was tough to pay that for breakfast but it stood out as one of the tastiest in recent memory.
Husk is a classic Charleston eatery. Add it to your list but make sure you bring your wallet and make reservations. On to the next culinary adventure…
