Daily digest What one local ate over the course of a day

Marissa Edwards lives in North Charleston.

We went to IHOP for breakfast where we had 59-cent short stack pancakes. A short stack is three pancakes, and they’re like pretty good size. They’re thick. They’re good. IHOP’s usually expensive, so it was great. But it was just yesterday, because it was like their anniversary or something. That’s why we went. And then I had scrambled eggs as a side with it, and a coffee, and then I ate some of my husband’s hash browns.

And then for lunch, we went to Menkoi Ramen House downtown, and shared a bowl of miso ramen. It had a different name, but I can’t remember what it is right now. That was really good; it was a huge bowl, so that’s all we had.

Then for dinner, we went to Burger King. I had a crispy chicken junior sandwich, a Whopper Jr., a small fry, like three of the Mac n’ Cheetos (Editor’s note: Burger King last month introduced the fried mac-and-cheese snack, rolled in Cheeto seasoning) They’re OK. They’re OK. I had them once before; the reason we got them this time is because my husband hadn’t tried them yet, so I was like, they’re good enough to try. Usually we go in, but last night we went through the drive-thru and ended up eating in the parking lot, even though that’s why I didn’t want to go through the drive-thru. You know.
