Charleston Eats: Halo (again)

Halo was good enough to warrant another visit for lunch today, this time with my good camera.

Today I went for the Maryland Crab Cake sandwich. This is now my new favourite sandwich.

Almost all crab, with just enough filler to hold things together and carry the seasonings. For $8 you probably aren't going to find a better crab cake in the Charleston area (I haven't encountered one yet). Comes with house-made potato chips, pickle and topped with a pickled okra. The crab cake comes in a large round pretzel roll which makes eating it sandwich style kind of tricky without having crab cake smoosh out the sides. I just ate it piece by piece, starting with the top part. The crab cake is delicious, and something you'll want to take your time savouring. The relish and crab bits that fell out were wrapped up in the lettuce burrito style. Then polished off the bottom half of the roll.

If you're in the area, it's a great place to stop for lunch. It gets pretty busy around noon for the lunch rush, but you can always call ahead and place your order. There's plenty of seating upstairs where it's a lot quieter.
