The Man Behind the Mix

If you are a regular in the truly ‘Southern’ town of Charleston, South Carolina, then you are no stranger to the ‘ever so’ hip and elegant ambiance of the restaurant to see and be seen at; Tabbuli.  If you are just stopping by Charleston for a visit then Tabbuli, at 6 North Market Street, is where you’re going to want to pull-up-a-seat and have the best drinks and Mediterranean American cuisine in town.

Tabbuli’s environment has charm, distinction, hospitality, and a handsome Mixologist/General Manager to boot, Jay Witkowski!  As a seasoned bartender and a favorite on the Board of Mixology for BR Guest, Jay, has personally handcrafted the cocktails at Tabbuli to make sure your drink experience is as unique and exciting as Tabbuli.

Tabbuli General Manager Jay Witkowski

Famous Jay’s philosophy for Tabbuli Specialty Cocktails is, “I like putting flavors together, and I love to muddle. Basil, Mint, and Rosemary – those are all items we keep around for the cocktails. And we make our hibiscus simple syrup in-house. Without these pure ingredients, you can’t have exceptional drinks.”

Tabbuli Mojitios

One of Jay’s Simply Favorites is the Mojito.  “I’m a big mojito guy,” with a wink and smile he exclaims. “I’ve created probably around 25 specialty drink lists, but I come back to the mojito.”

Fresh ingredients, unparalleled taste, flavorful and delightfully distinct describe what you can expect when it comes to the cocktails Jay creates for Tabbuli’s Specialty Cocktails and Simply Favorites, not to mention the Cuisine!!

Breeze on into the patio, take a seat, check your Facebook and/or Twitter; order a Jay inspired, handcrafted cocktail at Tabbuli’s today, you’ll be glad you did!

 

Have you tried the hookah bar at Tabbuli Grill?

Did you know Tabbuli Grill features an authentic hookah bar? Maybe you haven’t tried it because it looks intimidating or you are unsure about it. Hookahs and shisha at Tabbuli GrillHere is an overview about hookahs and how they work.

The photo at the right shows some of the hookahs we have at Tabbuli Grill. Generally there is a jar at the bottom of the hookah that is filled with enough water to submerge a few centimeters of the body tube, which is sealed tightly to it. You do not want to overfill the jar  since it will increase the inhalation force needed to use it. Tobacco – or shisha – is placed inside the bowl at the top of the hookah and then a foil or charcoal screen with a burning charcoal is placed on top. In some countries, the bowl is covered with perforated tin foil or a metal screen to separate the coal and the shisha. This minimizes inhalation of any coal ash with the smoke. Adding the foil may reduce the temperature the tobacco is exposed to, preventing it from burning directly.

To smoke using a hookah you inhale through the mouthpiece at the end of the tube. The air is pulled through the charcoal and into the bowl holding the tobacco. The hot air heats, but does not burn the tobacco, and produces smoke. The smoke is passed down through the body tube that extends into the water in the jar and cools the smoke. The smoke bubbles up through the water, loses heat, and fills the top part of the jar. When a smoker inhales through the hose, smoke passes into the lungs, and the change in pressure in the jar pulls more air through the charcoal, continuing the process.

A typical hookah session lasts about 45 minutes and can be shared with another person, or a small group of friends. Tabbuli offers the following flavors of shisha to choose from: cherry, double apple, mint, strawberry, orange, grape, energy drink, plum, cappuccino, melon, watermelon, grape & mint cocktail, pineapple, honey, apricot, mango, coconut, peach and the Tabbuli special blend.
