Charleston - not the Same'ole

We get enough tourist mentions for the vast array of restaurants downtown that I don't need to add to the same'ole stuff that gets written about the same places over & over.

We rarely go to eat downtown these days. Living in Mount Pleasant we have a number of good spots to dine. We also go to North Charleston for more ethnic choices. we ate at a Colombian restaurant on Rivers Avenue in North Charleston.

El Sabor Latino

Wow. We had been in the insurance office next door when I pointed out this tiny building that had Spanish writing and an "OPEN" sign. It was lunch time and a few people were strolling in. We actually thought it was going to be a Mexican place, but we were wrong.

What a great decision we made to step in the door of El Sabor Latino!

Meat stuffed Yuca, pork belly, sausage, marinated beef, more pork belly, quail eggs, more yuca, plantains...and that was just OUR lunch. Two of us ate lunch for well under $20.

Much of the menu is in Spanish and the employees don't understand much English. But there is a good portion of the menu written in English and the lady who helped us wasn't offended by us pointing to our choices on the menu (while at the same time butchering the pronunciation).

Everything was good with 95% of it being absolutely excellent.

El Sabor Latino will see us gracing their doorway many more times in the future.
