Surprised nobody has mentioned pizza.
I've lived in SC 54 of my 55 years, and I have never heard of Salmon stew. Salmon patties, maybe, but not salmon stew.I still think Salmon Stew is the most iconic...i've never seen it served anywhere else in the US...
I've mentioned it here in Tennessee over the years and no one has heard of it....
Hash may be iconic to SC...
How bout Pickled Peaches!!!!!
Chicken bog is a Pee Dee dish. My family is from Myrtle Beach/Marion area and it was served everywhere. Agreed about shrimp and grits. My grandma born and raised near Myrtle Beach has never had it or heard of it until I mentioned it. In that part of South Carolina near Myrtle, rice was the typical dish to be served with everything because of its roots in the rice industry.DNR? What's that? And I grew up in upstate SC to a very country family that's been in the state for 300 years. Never seen someone actually serve chicken bog. Had Frogmore Stew many times (though we call it low country boil). I will fight someone who says shrimp and grits are iconic. I never heard of them until I was visiting Charleston in college. I feel like they only blew up fairly recently, primarily when all the northerners started moving to the beach.
I feel like mustard BBQ, hash, or pimento cheese are much more South Carolina than these other dishes. Boiled peanuts are up there too. I think they're more distributed now, but nowhere are they as prevalent.
