Fat Hen

This year my trip to Charleston, SC came at the perfect time. I had spent the previous few weeks caring for a family member who had just had surgery. So, after taking care of my family member I was ready for some fun, good food and company, I wanted to try some new places in Charleston. The first stop was Fat Hen. This is just a few minutes from Charleston on Johns Island. The meal started with heirloom tomatoes over field greens with a friend poached egg. This had a smidgen too much salt, but I enjoyed the combination of the fresh tomato and the crispy outside of the egg. My dinning partner had the stuffed pork chop with gritts. I was a huge hunk of meal, suitable for any caveperson. I had the fish special grouper over vegetables. Oh my, it was so good. The grouper was cooked to perfection. The vegetables were so fresh, it was a real treat.

The service here was just outstanding! Our server was very knowledgeable and friendly.

There is no picture of the dessert as it was consumed before my camera made it out of my purse. It was a chocolate bread pudding.
