What a vegetarian ate at Magnolias, Charleston!

I went with a large group that was on the hunt for oysters and other seafood, and had resigned myself to a liquid diet of cocktails and some vegetarian sides. The evening started out well with an East Side Mojito, a nicely refreshing one with tangy lemon, tea and mint, consumed at the bar as we waited for a table.

At first glance there was little for a vegetarian to eat, but there were plenty of wonderful “sides” including potato chips with blue cheese, a housemade pimiento cheese with fried wafers. For my meal I chose the Fried Green Tomatoes, white cheddar and caramelized onion, grits, country ham, and tomato chutney (minus the ham!), and a special on the menu – spaghetti squash sliders. The chutney on the fried green tomatoes was delicious! The second Mojito was mysteriously devoid of lemons, but on request this omission was quickly rectified! In all a hugely satisfying meal, that left no room or desire for any dessert!
