Enjoying the cuisine of another country can inspire people to someday travel there, where they will undoubtedly eat a cheeseburger and immediately come home. Save yourself the trouble with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of American Fare at Funky Little Kitchen in Awendaw.
Helmed by restaurateur and veteran chef Andy Harris, Funky Little Kitchen presents diners with a menu of classic American fare made from fresh local ingredients. The restaurant's half-dozen eclectic burgers range from the succulent surf 'n' turf topped with fried shrimp and spicy thousand-island dressing ($11) to the ranch- and bacon-laden cowgirl burger ($10). The grilled beef selections are complemented by a variety of southern classics, such as biscuits with homemade sausage gravy ($7), a deep-fried fish sandwich ($9), and a bust of William Faulkner oozing cheese grits. All dishes are cooked to order by the skillful chefs and arrive embellished with homemade sauces and dressings.
Funky Little Kitchen's adjoining funky little dining area is quaintly decorated, with lime-hued walls adorned with the works of local artists and giant eating utensils to be used in the event of an emergency. In addition to supporting local farmers and artists, the restaurant also recycles whatever possible, providing an eco-friendly epicurean experience.
