One of my very favorite episodes of 30 Rock is Sandwich Day, where Liz looks forward to her special sandwich and goes a little crazy when she's prevented from getting it. The line "WHERE'S MY SANDWICH?!!!!" is one that tends to come out of my mouth when I can't find something I really want. The passion that Liz Lemon feels for that sandwich came out in full force when I tried the banh mi sandwich at Butcher & Bee in Charleston.
Butcher & Bee welcomed us with open arms and warm sunshine through the front windows. It's so pretty inside, with arrangements of flowers on tables to just light up your day with a pop of color. Cute and cozy.
We split a pork belly banh mi along with a grilled cheese sandwich. The banh mi was incredibly flavorful with the juiciest slice of pork belly. I fell in love. We wrapped it up with a tasty piece of upside down apple cake. After we sat down a group of Charleston firemen filed in through the door and if you can't trust a fireman to lead you to some good grub, who can you trust?
I have so many stories and great places and wonderful people to share from my trip to Charleston. This is just a taste. There's much more to come in a special package, I can't wait to present it all to you! Lemon, out.
