Chowish, Veg Friendly in Myrtle Beach

invinotheresverde Apr 6, 2010 11:44 AM

We'll be in Central MB at the end of April. Our condo has a kitchen, and we'll probably cook every breakfast there, as well as a few lunches, so we're mostly looking for dinner spots.
Criteria:

Any ethnicity
Any price
Vegetarian friendly (VERY important, as 4/7 of us are lacto-ovo veggies)
Any reasonable area, as we'll have a car
Decent wine list is a bonus
No chains

We're also interested in everyone's favorite Happy Hour spots. We don't have HH in puritanical MA, so we're super pumped!

Thanks in advance, and yes, I'll report back!

    Here is a link to a website I follow for Happy Hour reviews. So far, it's the most detailed and up-to-date info I've found for HH info. Hope it helps!

      Hi, I thought I recognized your name from the New england board! I'm headed to Myrtle Beach the 2nd week in May.
      Do us a huge favor and post your trip report when you get back? I would love to hear what you really liked and not so much.
      I've saved the Happy Hour list to my docs as well!
      Have a wonderful time!!!!

        Myrtle Beach has a lot of shitty food. I've never eaten so much fried crap in my life.

        -El Cerro Grande: awesome beans, gross "guac", bland
        -Bombay at the Beach: really awful Indian, small, boring buffet, nothing tasted very good
        -PF Changs: veg lettuce wraps had no flavor, small portions and high price, broke my chain rule for nothing, although my dad liked his honey shrimp

        I can't remember much else other than lots of happy hours, complete requisite spinach and artichoke dip, grease and cheap beer.

        Oh, my stomach.

          I very rarely eat fried food but seem to eat pretty darn good here in the Myrtle Beach area.
          Redi-et Ethiopian Cuisine is great for veggies and non.....very good food.
          Habibi's Cafe and Market is very good...I see lots of local chefs eating there.
          Salt Creek Cafe , High Hammock and Black River Grill both have lovely veg options.
          And although a chain I love the veggie sub at Jimmy Johns!

            I forgot to add that the new chef at Crady's Restaurant in Conway offers quite a bit of options for vegs.

              We were going to do Redi-et, but my family hates injera.

              Well, at first read it sounds dismal, but if you really hit all those happy hours places I guess you get what you get.
              Bar food isn't my thing at all.
              I think you'd have been much happier at one of the 2 recommended Thai places rather than PF Changs.
              And we're not going to miss Salt Creek.
              It's always a challenge travelling with family.
              I will keep positive and report back after my trip next week.

            I'm a lacto-ovo and eat at E Noodle on a regular basis.

            PF Changs also has an excellent vegatarian menu.
