Charleston's culinary scene is one of the great prides of the city, and new and varied restaurants are opening almost every day. The Park Circle area in particular has seen a boom recently. Lotus, owned by the proprietors of another Charleston restaurant called Basil, opened last week. The Vietnamese restaurant serves up staples like ginger chicken and crepes filled with shrimp, pickled carrots, pork, daikon, and lime dressing. If you're on the go and looking for a pick-me-up, former Starbucks baristas Sheri Johnson and Mike Berndt have gotten their wheeled coffee wagon, Espresso-A-Go-Go, up and running. The bicycle-powered stand is currently making appearances all over town, but you can track their location on Twitter. In Summerville, you can grab some Lowcountry cuisine at Low Country Fish Camp. The menu sticks to seafood staples like oyster po' boys and catfish platters, but you can also find land-based fare like beef tenderloin and a blackened porkchop. Finally, if you go a little further up the road you can find Rise Gourmet Goods and Bakeshop, which sells pastries in the morning and pre-packed family meals beginning at 4 PM. Perfect for those on the go still seeking a great meal! Read the full article here: From Vietnamese Food to Another Fish Camp, a Look at the Latest Restaurant Openings
