On this Food Friday brought to you by the US Foods CHEF’STORE we kick off part two of our special "Best Food Fridays of 2017" segment where our Natalie Parsons highlights some of the very best foods we tasted this year...
Liberty Tap & Grill Room also known as "Liberty on the Lake" in Irmo, S.C. gets "Best Small Plate" for their Seared Atlantic Salmon which bursts with flavor and guarantees you leaving on a full stomach.
Next up, it's Cola's Restaurant in downtown Columbia, S.C. Their Scallops and Lobster feature dish scores "Best Entree" for its pretty as a picture presentation and out of this world taste.
Then there's Silver Fox Grill in Irmo, S.C. that we're deeming as "Best Burger in the Midlands." Everything from the toasted bun, very generous portioned pattie and multiple cheeses that will have you saying, "Get in my belly!"
Lastly, there's Za's Brick Oven Pizza also known as "Za's On Devine" in Columbia, S.C. Their Devine Pizza awards them "Best Pizza in the Midlands" for its crispy crust, unique sauces, toppings galore and a pie all made in a brick oven.
Some honorary mentions for our "Best Food Fridays of 2017": Kiki's Chicken & Waffles in Columbia, S.C. gets both "Best Southern Classic" for their incredible Shrimp & Grits and "Best Breakfast" for their super flavorful Red Velvet Waffle. Also, Capital City Club in Columbia, S.C. wins "Best Southern Twist" for their Chicken Churro which is a unique twist on Chicken & Waffles made with French Toast.
