Traditional Charleston foods help: Huguenot torte, hobotee, chicken bog

Hi there,
Heading to Charleston this weekend to track down some local/traditional Charleston dishes for my website, Eat Your World. Some of the dishes on our list seem quite readily available while others are nearly nonexistent! I can only find Huguenot torte available at one restaurant, Middletown Place, as well as chicken bog (Mamma Brown’s in Mt Pleasant). Hobotee doesn't seem to be on any menus, so we might have to give that one up...

So, do any of you locals know of other (or any) places preparing these dishes? Also, how similar is shrimp bog to chicken bog? I see that Hominy Grill does a shrimp version...

Many thanks
