Hannibal’s Kitchen isn’t one of those fancy restaurants with exquisite atmosphere and finery, but it serves some of the best soul food cuisines in the area. Owner L.J. Huger says the family-owned & operated restaurant has “been feeding the soul of the city” for more than 40 years because what the restaurant lacks in ambiance, they more than makeup for in taste. Sani Huger, LJ’s daughter, is now General Manager for the family-owned business.
This heritage is represented in the churches such as Emanuel AME, gravesites, Gullah-themed eateries, and other culturally and historically significant sites peppered throughout the neighborhood. There are many dedicated to preserving this heritage and the diversity it creates within the City of Charleston. Hannibal’s Kitchen does its part in preserving this rich culture by presenting authentic culinary dishes from the local Gullah culture for the world to enjoy.
