In the Forest Village shopping area, off of River Oaks Drive, a new restaurant called Shawarma Co. Mediterranean Grill has the hopes of being open by the beginning of August.
The name should be a good indicator of what to expect from this new eatery, but for those unsure what to expect, they have a sample menu for viewing on their page, facebook.com/shawarmacompany. It looks like customers will be able to customize their meal with a base (pita, rice or salad), a protein (such as chicken or steak) and toppings.
Although they don’t have their website running yet, they have already provided a phone number, 236-3322, for potential customers to call. As they prepare to open their doors, keep checking their Facebook page for updates, such as the hours they intend on operating. In the meantime, gaze at their menu and plan your perfect Mediterranean meal.
Crave Italian Oven and Bar has announced its intention to open this month, with their Facebook page (facebook.com/cravethepiemb) chronicling the updates.
This new Italian restaurant is located at 5900 on North Kings Highway in Myrtle Beach and is looking forward to bringing some quality dining experience to the area.
Crave also has a website up and running already, with only a few links not being complete yet. At www.cravethepie.com, visitors can see the menu and the happy hour deals the restaurant plans on serving. It appears they also plan on having take-out available that can be made through a phone call or on the website once they open.
Thus far, Crave intends to be open from 11a.m. to roughly 11 p.m. daily, although a question mark for the closing time on their website seems to indicate a willingness to stay open later. This is also supported by the “Late Night” link, though there is no information provided by a click, so keep checking back.
A glance at their Facebook page shows the completion of their fire oven (lovingly named Eleanor) and their menu, so no doubt this new Italian restaurant will be open very soon. They can also be reached at 213-0500.
The building of what used to be Fibbers on the Water has now been reopened as McMahon’s Irish Pub in Little River on 4498 Waterfront Drive.
The owner of Fibbers on the Water closed the restaurant and opened a new one (Carbone’s) in a different location. Now the old location is up and running again as the new restaurant, which is sure to gain the attention of locals who had been regulars at Fibbers. McMahon’s doesn’t have an online presence yet, but that will hopefully change as they gain traction.
In the Wal-Mart shopping area of Conway on U.S. 501, Nina Hibachi has finally opened its doors. The small restaurant has yet to provide any information in the online forums.
From the looks of their exterior, they will have a lot of favorite Americanized Asian dishes, like steak and broccoli with fried rice, alongside hibachi and sushi entrees. There is even a sign for chicken wings, so it looks like Nina Hibachi hopes to entertain all sorts of palates.
The food truck ordinance that recently passed in Horry County has brought Scully’s New Orleans Style Sno-Balls to the streets of Murrells Inlet. This family-run dessert stop opened this month and makes a good addition to the beachy and relaxed atmosphere.
Though technically not a restaurant, Scully’s has an address (3974 U.S. 17) and a phone number (803-338-7725) for easy contact. Pictures of the location and menu can be found at facebook.com/ScullysNewOrleansStyleSnoBalls.
New Orleans style sno-balls are often compared to snow cones, but have subtle differences, according to a brief history the Scully’s have typed up on their menu. Sno-balls have ice that is shaved more finely as opposed to a snow cone which has coarser shaved ice. This difference allows for more flavor to be absorbed by the sweet liquid toppings in a sno-ball.
Scully’s has close to 30 different flavors to choose from, even a combination of all flavors in the Ultimate Suicide Sno-Ball. They also provide a few toppings, the most popular being sweetened condensed milk, and the newest being liquid marshmallow. For those overwhelmed by the amount of flavors to choose from, the back of their menu has brief descriptions on what to expect from each flavor.
For instance, they boast their fruit flavors taste very similar to the actual fruit (Granny Smith Apple has a capitalized warning that it is very tart, naturally). Some other liquid toppings are made up of combined flavors, such as the Red Velvet Cake which is created with vanilla, cocoa and coconut flavoring. With this hot summer still in full swing, a stop by Scully’s for some New Orleans style sno-balls sounds like a good idea.
