Who doesn’t love a good milkshake? I know I do. I’m not talking about the watered down, artificially flavored, syrup laden mess you get from a fast food chain.
I’m talking about a real, honest-to-goodness shake. And that’s what you get at Farmhaus Burgers! (I don’t have enough time to talk about their locally sourced, beefy awesomeness. But if you haven’t tried it – believe me when I say you will not be disappointed. And what goes better with a shake than a burger?)
The two shakes you see before you are, in a word, epic. The shake to the right is the Shake of the Month: Titan Farms Peach & Caramel Milkshake. It’s made from local peaches and is sweet, a little salty from the caramel and has little bits of juicy peach that pop up and surprise you. It’s only available this August, so you have to plan a visit this month if you want to try it! The shake to the left is the Nana’s Pudding. It’s a boozy shake that magically tastes like the most legit liquid banana pudding you will ever try. It has Banana Rum, Irishman Irish Cream and little bites of crunchy vanilla wafer. The Nana’s Pudding shake is part of the regular drink/shake menu. If you’re craving a fun adult beverage you should definitely give this a try. Find them on Facebook at: Facebook.com/FarmhausBurger.

My friend and I were tired of eating at the same places. Not particularly being a fan of chain restaurants, we decided to try a new place called Taste. Taste is located in North Augusta in the beautiful neighborhood of Hammond’s Ferry, along the bank of the Savannah River.
Taste is a simple, quaint tapas restaurant and wine bar with a Southern feel. They use ingredients grown locally in both Georgia and South Carolina. They offer both inside and outside dining; it’s cute and welcoming and the staff is great!
On special was the white peach sangria, made at the restaurant. It tasted fresh, crisp and fantastic! They also serve a red sangria that looked very good. I’ll without a doubt be trying that on my next visit.
We ordered the smoked apple wood bacon pimento cheese with crackers and toast points to start. Now, I’ve grown up in the South my entire life and no one makes pimento cheese like my grandmama, but it was better than hers! Of course, I’d never tell her that.
Then we had the roasted pear wedge salad with feta cheese and a house-made vinaigrette. It was just right and hit the spot.
What did we have for dessert? Chocolate bread pudding. Yum. We had to wait a little while on this dish, but it was well worth the wait because it was baked fresh to order. It was heaven in a dish.
Taste is one of my new favorite spots and I will definitely be returning to try more of their dishes and weekly specials.
Taste is open Wednesday through Saturday for lunch (11:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m.) and dinner (5:30 p.m. – until).
Taste is located in Hammond’s Ferry at 465 Railroad Street, Suite 100 in North Augusta, SC 29841. Call today for more information or to make reservations (803) 341-9881 or visit their website: EatAtTaste.com
