Where to Eat in Charleston Right Now
The gist: From the team that created the much loved Chez Nous, comes this intimate, Spanish-style market and tapas bar helmed by chef Juan Cassalett. Malagón provides a truly unique experience, choosing to forego a website and frowning upon social media use inside the restaurant -- in favor of a more personal meal in which you’re connected to the food and the people around you (basically how we used to eat before smartphones).
The food: As with a lot of Spanish cuisine, pork plays a huge part, like in the bechamel croquettes or almond-stuffed dates wrapped in serrano ham. But even if you don’t eat pork, the menu has something for everyone, like the tortilla española or the fresh grilled whole flounder with garlic.
The cost: Tapas range from $7-17 each.
