Charleston’s Tasty Black Sheep Burrito
Why We Went: A group of friends and I went to Black Sheep Burrito & Brews to have their awesome brunch, which is available both Saturday and Sunday. In fact, I extended my trip to Charleston, West Virginia, just to have brunch here.
What We Had: The dishes we chose were Shrimp & Grits, Chicken & Waffles, Pancakes & Bacon, and a Biscuit with Gravy. All of them were plated beautifully and looked visually appealing.
Something Special: Black Sheep Burrito knows a thing to two about making amazing Chicken & Waffles. The huge Belgian Waffle is topped with crispy honey-nut breaded fried chicken, then drizzled with luscious sage infused maple syrup.
The waffle is then topped with candied pecans, fried onion straws, and candied jalapeños. A flavorful combination if I’ve ever tried one. Just look at that heaven on a plate!
Noteworthy: Black Sheep’s menu has an eclectic choice of foods; one that is certain to dazzle any foodie. I have not yet tried the lunch/dinner choices, but I love everything on the menu and feel quite sure it is done with flair and tastes wonderful.
Best Part of the Meal: My friend Kim ordered the Biscuit and Gravy and it was scrumptious! Not a typical country version by any means. The green onion buttered biscuit is paired with honey-nut chicken tenders and drizzled with sausage gravy. The meal is accompanied by fried potatoes. Wow, is all I can say!
Bonus: I will definitely try the Bombay Curry Benedict on my next trip, as I love anything Vindaloo. The waitress recommended it on this visit, but I had my heart set on the Chicken & Waffles.
Be Sure to Know: Black Sheep Burrito has an awesome drink and cocktail menu. Take a look at their awesome list of mules, margaritas, and sangrias. Black Sheep also has flights of beer so you can try several different ones since they are known for their impressive craft beer selection.
What Needs Improvement: The only thing I see is that Black Sheep Burrito is an entirely hipster restaurant and for some people that might be very intimidating. I found it welcoming and friendly, but for those more conservative diners, they may feel like a fish-out-of-water here.
