Hey foodies! I have been busy getting Scott's horse prepared for the 1st and 2nd go rounds of the NCHA Summer Spectacular so I have been a little late on regular posting... I have a free moment so year I am! We were feeling like something light so a seafood joint close to out hotel on Hulen was a nice choice... Charleston's.
It has been roasty, toasty so Scott ordered a refreshing Sangria and let it borrow his shades to stay cool. I personally am not a fan of sangrias made with red wine, I prefer white with tons of fruit. It started off strong but as the ice cooled it down and melted it muddled the strong flavor.
I knew exactly what I wanted: Salmon, Mashed Potatoes, and Sauteed Spinach. The wild Atlantic fish came on a bed of rice which I did not eat as well as a sauce I did not care for. The mixture of salmon, potato and spinach on each fork full is just like my heaven. Yum!
Scott too went for Salmon and I was surprised he usually like white fish. His was Coho Salmon which is much more orange in color versus my choice. His plate was rounded out with asparagus and whipped sweet potatoes. What a bright plate!
We shared a Blueberry Creme Brulee just because... It was ok, we polished it off so it must have not been too bad. I liked he addition of blueberries I have not had that combination and think it is a keeper!
Charleston's is an excellent choice when you want a affordable, healthy meal. I like that they give you the option of choosing your protein, sides and vegetables. It makes you really happy when your dinner plate is set in front of you. I know I was!
