Dining with Daphne // The Porch
Last week Daphne and I had a very delightful lunch at the new spot, The Porch. The Porch is owned by Claire Calvin of Dinners on the Porch fame and is definitely the new (only) Tex-Mex spot in town. Located at 840 Mill Works Street. It is a little hard to find. But with the help of the Journal’s article and some friends I was able to find this new jewel of a restaurant.
“I had the sliders. the low country shrimp and the zucchini slider. They were both wonderful. They both were in a patty type form and had a wonderful taste. I loved them!!! I have a hard time deciding which one was better because they were both so good! and the cheesy tater tots were awesome! the cheese had a good spice to it. I literally could not stop eating them.” When Daphne got the sliders I knew I had to try something different so I went with the Southwest Porch Pockets. Like Daphne I felt my pockets were delicious. It was almost like a delicious burrito lightly flash fried in an amazing pocket. I devoured mine. Also like Daphne, I couldn’t get over the Cheesy Tater Tots. I could have made a meal just out of them. — You can absolutely share the tater tots. We both chowed down on them and didn’t finish the side.
You pick up your food at a window and your name is called and the bell is rung. My name was quickly called by the owner herself, Claire.
I next asked Daphne her thoughts on the ambiance:
“My favorite part was the menu. There were several things I wanted to try. I had a hard time choosing what to eat. I want to go back and try other items. I loved it!!!”
