We are excited to announce our new culinary tour called Savor the Flavors of Upper King Street. This tour is part of our repertoire of magnificent culinary tours, including Savor the Flavors of Charleston, the Dessert Tour and the Chef’s Kitchen Tour.
This new Upper King Street Tour will incorporate eateries located in this popular area known for its delicious cuisine and varied selection of restaurants and bars. This tour focuses on the culinary history of the city with tastings at each location. Our other Savor the Flavors of Charleston tour focuses on the Market Street and East Bay Street areas.
The tour begins at Virginia’s on King with a tasting of chicken and dumplings and fried green tomatoes. The next stop is Smoke, a barbecue restaurant, where the guitars adorning the walls are basked in warm lighting accents. At Smoke, you can sample pulled pork Cuban-confit chicken wings and smoked potato salad.
Then it’s on to Victor’s Social Club, tucked away in Hudson Alley just down from Coast, where we’ll sample house-made bruschetta and collard greens. Of course the last stop is dessert: scrumptious cupcakes from Cupcake on King Street.
This tour is on Wednesdays and Thursdays from 3-5:30pm; meet at the Charleston Visitor Center, 375 Meeting St. The cost is $60 per person. Please call for reservations as space is limited to 12 people.
