A Walk to Remember… Enjoying The Sweetness Of Broadway at the Beach

Did you know July is National Ice Cream Month?

Did you know a lap around the interior of Broadway at the Beach is roughly one mile?

Did you know you can walk a mile around Broadway all while enjoying some sweet treats along the way from six different ice cream shops?

So put on your sneakers, sandals or flip flops, we are taking a tasty tour of Broadway at the Beach!

First Stop: The New Stop…

Our journey begins with the newest ice cream that has pulled into Broadway… Waffles & Cream. Located near Joe's Crab Shack, this ice cream truck delivers more than just a scoop of the good stuff, but they also serve it on top of a warm waffle with all the dessert fixins! Here you can create your own sundae, enjoy ice cream waffle nachos or try a signature bowl including the Broadway Bowl featuring a waffle bowl with a white chocolate and rainbow sprinkled rim and two scoops of strawberry ice cream, topped with bits of strawberry glazed donuts, strawberry sauce, rainbow sprinkled and whipped cream! One word… YUM!

Second Stop: Sweet Molly's

Next we head west to the other new ice cream destination to land at Broadway at the Beach, Sweet Molly's Creamery. Located across from Yamato's Japanese Steakhouse, this light bite eatery will have you waggin' your tail just like the shop's canine companion and namesake, Molly! This family-owned and operated ice cream shop creates more than 20 unique ice cream, frozen yogurt and sorbet flavors! Some of our favorite flavors include, Chocolate Pecan Stir, Cotton Candy Crazy and Cookie Dough Crumble!

As we make our way further west from Sweet Molly's, we continue our journey past some of our other sweet treat favorites including It'Sugar, The Fudgery and Wee R' Sweetz!

Ladies and Gentleman… Ben & Jerry's!

This legendary duo of ice cream creators have a double dose of goodness with two locations at Broadway. The first one on our tasty trek is Ben & Jerry's South near Liberty Brewery & Grill. Our favorites? Chunky Monkey, Cherry Garcia and the classic, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough.

Three down… three to go!

The Classics Of Kilwins

Now that we have sampled the sweetness and walked along the southern end of Broadway, it's time to cross the bridge near WonderWorks, and into the Mediterranean Village to the next stop, Kilwins!

From confectionary creations to fudge and candies, you can find everything to satisfy your sweet tooth, but we are on a mission for ice cream and that's one item you will not want to pass up on at this sweet shop! Our go-to at Kilwins has to be the Southern Praline Pecan in a waffle cone!

Two to go... we've got this!

After Kilwins, we will start our way down past The Avenue and Paula Deen's Family Kitchen to our second stop into a Ben & Jerry's, this one on the north side of Broadway. Same great tastes, but with a different view of Lake Broadway where you can enjoy the flavors of Cinnamon Buns, Chocolate Shake It and The Tonight Dough all while watching the Beach Rider Jet Boat go by!

Now that we are closing in on that mile around Broadway, we have one more ice cream stop and this one takes us to Heroes Harbor, home of Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville, River Street Sweets and Cold Stone Creamery where you mix in your own unique flavors or try one of their signature creations! From the Birthday Cake Remix, to the Cookie Minster to the Mud Pie Mojo, it is hard to top one of their signature selections, in their freshly baked waffle cones! In fact, the only thing you will want to top off their ice creams maybe a cherry!

So there you have it, a deliciously tasty tour of Broadway at the Beach, good not only during National Ice Cream month, but every day of the year!

​A Little Sweet... A Little Salty… And A Whole Lot Of Southern Living

Do you have one of those places that just makes you think of home? Or a certain dish that makes you think about Grandma's cooking? Or a piece of décor that makes you relive memories of a southern summer? During our recent visit to the Southern Living Store at Broadway at the Beach, we experienced all of the above, taking home something sweet, something salty and of course, something southern!

Some Southern Sweetness

Muffins… pancakes… and pound cakes… oh my! The sweetness of the south can be tasted through the many mixes, sweet jellies and the sweet teas of the Charleston Tea Plantations, all of which we found here.

Some Southern Saltiness

No, we're not talking about that southern sass you may experience when someone becomes a little "hangry." Rather, the saltiness we are talking about comes in the form of peppered relish, dilly beans and spices! Whether you enjoy them as a stand-alone snack or add them to your own recipe, these tasty treats will add a little zip to your dips, dinners and everything in between.

Speaking of recipes, need to impress the neighbors, friends or the in-laws when they make those unannounced visits? You can always get in the kitchen and whip up something sweet or savory with the help of a cook book, and at the Southern Living Store you'll find a plethora of palatable options to aid you in filling the bellies of those you love!

Home Sweet Southern Home

From pillows, to flowers, to signs and more, you can add just a touch of southern chic or redecorate your home with the finds in this store! One of our favorites? The wall of signs!

You can also find dishware…

Napkins…

Mugs…

Furniture…

Candles…

Pillows...

And even fashion!

So the next time you need to find some sweet (and salty) southern charm, just visit the Southern Living Store at Broadway at the Beach!

Let's Eat! We’re On A (Sushi) Roll… and on Hibachi… And on Appetizers At Broadway’s King Kong Sushi

Celebrity chef, Nobu Matsuhisa once said, "Making sushi is an art and experience is everything."

Well, we are pretty sure the world famous chef would be totally culinary captivated at King Kong Sushi at Broadway at the Beach. On our recent visit, his quote proved true as the vibrant colors and configurations of sushi, tempura, hibachi and everything in between was delicately created and even more important, they were deliciously enjoyed. This local's favorite opened it's doors in 2009 and has been named best sushi at the beach since 2012 and from our recent visit, we can see and taste why!

As you can tell, it's easy to see why the making of sushi is an art.

But also these creations, including pork belly…



(Smoked pork belly with a touch of teriyaki sauce, topped with a special sauce)

Gyoza...


(Pork, chicken and vegetable pan fried dumplings)

And shrimp tempura...


(Shrimp and vegetables lightly battered and deep fried)

Are also appealing not only to our taste buds, but our eyes as well!

Believe it or not… these are all considered appetizers and small plates... but each could very easily pass as a very filling meal!

Want to scroll back up and be tempted by the perfectly plated pictures? Go ahead, we will wait.

Okay, now back to the deliciousness of our visit.

Our girls mid-day getaway included three different sushi rolls and if that wasn't enough (which it was), we also split a lunch portion of the chicken hibachi!

For our trio of rolls, we went with the OMG Roll and it's very easy to see where this roll gets it's name because O-M-G was it good! This roll features garlic marinated fried chicken, crab, cucumber and lettuce, topped with tempura flakes, spicy mayo, teriyaki and apple chili sauce! Again, no words are needed to describe this creation… just three little letters... O-M-G!

For the sushi selection, we enjoyed the Hurricane Roll which includes crab, cream cheese and cucumber, topped with spicy grilled crab and scallop, teriyaki sauce and sesame seeds. Then last but certainly not least, we selected the Spider Roll which features soft shell crab tempura, cucumber, avocado, smelt roe and teriyaki sauce.

We were certainly on a roll or actually a trio of sushi rolls as we were also enjoying a lunch portion of chicken hibachi! Not only did our hibachi include a big portion of freshly made chicken, rice and veggies but also miso soup and a salad with their own homemade ginger dressing.

Now, it is safe to say, our trio lunch tribe may have blown our low carb diets for the mid-day date, but it was worth every delicious bite, every carb and every calorie! But be rest assured, we ate around 1pm and that was it for the rest of the day as we were filled to our belly brim with King Kong's finest!

A visit to King Kong Sushi goes beyond the plated perfection, but also the experience of the newly renovated restaurant both inside and outside on their beautiful new patio overlooking Lake Broadway, perfect for watching fireworks at night or the jetboat by day!

And we can't forget about the beautiful bar offering cocktails, martinis, Moscow mules and everything in between!

That's not all King Kong Sushi has to offer, they even offer catering for your events.

Case and point, how cool would your next event be if you served this…

So as our quick trip to Northeast Asia came to a close in the Southeast coastal city of Myrtle Beach, we filled up and set out on a walk around Broadway at the Beach and of course, already started planning our next visit to King Kong Sushi!
