Just got back from some time in Savannah and wanted to report in on my eatings. As I found out about everyplace we went in Savannah from CHOWHOUND!!
Mrs. Wilkes Boarding house - great - this is one of those places that is a bit hard to explain to people why it is great. I didn't feel that most of the entrees were mindblowing - the meatloaf was good - the friend chicken was good but I have certainly had better - but both were very good - the sides were amazing and i really found myself just craving plates full of the sides. I have never enjoyed Lima Beans or Black Eyed Pees so much. Also the Banana Pudding was amazing
slice of pizza at Vinnie Van Gogh's (decent pizza) great local dive environment
the rail pub - awesome pub - i wish i lived in this neighborhood to hang out there more often for a pint
Bistro Savannah - A nice meal experience. Definitely not out of this world for the price but good. I ordered a porkloin meal that was 24 and my wife got a shrimp meal that was 19 I believe. Apetizer - Shrimp & Grits - good - not mind blowing - a bit too much gunk on top - by gunk i mean garnish - i believer it was some form of fried pepper/scallion.The shrimp were White shrimp which for my money is the best shrimp around. The pork loin was seasoned perfectly but was a bit overcooked and wasn't "piping hot" but was an excellently conceived dish - just maybe not the house's best execution. The Creme Brule was good too. All and all we enjoyed the meal - i forgot to mention - the bread they brought out at the meals beginning was excellet - definitely worth taking note of
on the drive to and from orlando - which is home - we stopped in at brunswick ga to eat at the Georgia Pig or as the GA Pig - it was great - the chopped pork plate was great - the chopped pork sandwich was great - the sauce .... ehh - but who cares - when the pork is that great - who needs the sauce - i really liked this place - i would highly recomend it!!
The last night we were going to go to sixpence pub but instead decided to just eat the waffle house by the hotel because we were totally beat
we didn't stay in savannah long - it was a beautiful city -i can say charleston makes a better vacation spot however savannah may be a cooler place to live if for no other reason than the great flair that SCAD brings to the town - art everywhere!!
