Notes: Hominy Grill on Rutledge Avenue, Charleston, SC. “Wehani rice and
avocado salad. Wehani rice is a hybrid of brown rices developed at Lundberg
Family Farms in California (www.lundberg.com). It’s a light clay color and
splits a little when cooked. ‘Wehani rice is nutty and unhulled, kind of
chewy, and it has some texture to it,’ Stehling says. It’s a nice pairing
with the smooth, cool avocado.” — AB
