Charleston Edition: Sokolata

By Candace Nelson - 10:00 AM

Sokolata

Sokolata is a fairly new restaurant in the Charleston food scene and it's known for its amazing Greek desserts.

And recently, it made a move to the building across the way and expanded into entrees, like pasta, pizza, calzones and sandwiches.

Right when it opened, I went to check it out with my friend Meghan. It's clear they were experiencing some opening week kinks, but nothing too extreme.

It was a former fast food restaurant - Shlotzskys - and there are giant exterior windows, which brings in some nice light.

It feels more fast-casual concept. We were able to sit wherever we wanted, and after a while, we had a waitress serve us.

The menu has items like hummus, gyro, philly cheesesteaks, lasagna and salads.

We started with some gouda macaroni & cheese bites. These were a bit elevated from the tip fried app you'd expect. I could taste the smoky gouda.

Meghan went with a calzone, which she seemed to enjoy.

I started off with a Greek salad, which had a generous helping of fresh veggies and feta.

The Mykonos Spaghetti popped out to me - sauteed shrimp, onion, mushroom, mozzarella and marinara. Spaghetti isn't usually my go-to pasta (I prefer more pasta to sauce ratio), but I did appreciate the mushrooms and shrimp in here. A nice little twist on what I'm used to.

For dessert, I took home a piece of mille-feuille, which was divine.

Light, crispy layers with mousse and fresh fruit. It was really, really good.

Overall, I'd love to see how they move forward and add more dishes.
