At the beginning of October I decided to do a little weekend trip down to Savannah to see some friends. This was a first time adventure for me and from what I’ve heard about other people is that it is all about the southern cuisine. If you don’t treat yourself here, you are not experiencing Savannah to its fullest.
I had to prep daily for my dinner adventures. You could definitely pack on a lot of weight in a weekend in Savannah if you aren’t careful. The food is so rich and has a lot of salt. I would have a protein shake for breakfast and a salad for lunch. When it came to dinner, all bets were off!
Night #1-The Olde Pink House (Fried Porkchop, Mac n Cheese and Collard Greens)
This was the epitome of southern comfort. I could definitely feel the salt later one but it was so worth it. This was my first time eating collard greens and it was amazing. It was so much food and I couldn’t finish all of it. This was an amazing stop and an amazing dish. The restaurant is in an old historic home. It is just so beautiful.
Night #2-Fiddler’s Crab House (Fried Seafood Platter and Oysters Rockefeller
So overall the seafood platter I got was ok. They oysters though were really good. This place also had really great cocktails and an amazing view right down on river street.
Night #3-Vic’s on the River (Fried Green Tomatoes and Shrimp & Grits)
Everything here was amazing. The fried green tomatoes with goat cheese was amazing. This was my first experience with fried green tomatoes and I was pleasantly surprised. The shrimp and grits were an absolute showstopper. The shrimp were so sweet and the sauce was so savory. I took a long time to eat this because I didn’t want it to end.
Bonus Treat-Lulu’s (Pecan Pie and Dessert Martinis)
I never thought in a million years that I could find a place that specifically specializes in dessert cocktails while serving actual desserts too. This is a bar that is open late night and it is magical. The Reeses Peanut Butter Cup Martini is so delightful. I’m pretty sure that I heard angels sing while I ate it.
Above is my night vlog from Savannah. I did a walk through the historic district and took some video of River Street. I hope to catch you all on the next adventure. Thank you for following along!
