207 Rutledge Ave., Cannonborough
A local favorite, Hominy Grill is slightly off the beaten path, but still walking distance from King Street. Not surprisingly, it's situated in a historic building (previously a single family home). A James Beard Award-winning chef opened Hominy in 1996, and it's since become known for its delicious Low Country-inspired cuisine—jalapeño hushpuppies, catfish po-boys, tomato pudding, stewed okra, cornmeal fried catfish, and the Charleston Nasty Biscuit (fried chicken breast, cheddar cheese, sausage gravy).
Xiao Bao Biscuit
224 Rutledge Ave., Cannonborough
This adorable cafe-style restaurant serves the best Asian comfort food in Charleston. Xiao Bao is a perfect, casual lunch spot (although they also do dinner Monday through Saturday)—the menu is small and unfussy, but seriously satisfying.
