We chose to evacuate from area due to potential flooding. What we didn't expect was a new restaurant in Kingstree owned by a familiar face.
Holly Cusack has taken what she's learned in Georgetown and opened High Cotton Cafe, located on 117 North Academy Street in Kingstree, S.C.
It's a semi-rustic menu and a work in progress from what Cusack has told me. The tastes, however, are explosive.
The King Burger is a grilled Angus patty on a brioche bun with lettuce, tomato, cheese, bacon, avocado and fried egg. I got mine hard fried. It was fresh, flavorful and tasted great.
The Southern Tacos come with your choice of steak, chicken or shrimp. We had the shrimp. They're topped with their spicy southern slaw and a drizzle of house sauce, which makes the dish!
The vegetable soup is about as comforting as you can picture. The portion was excellent. Just the right blend of meat to veggies.
There's also Twisted Club - a traditional club served on a croissant.
But we think you'll love the Chicken Club Pasta Salad the most! Hearty rotini pasta is tossed with shredded chicken, bacon, tomatoes, cheese and avocado. It is then served over mixed greens with crackers. So good!
Enjoy the photos. We enjoyed the meals!
