When in Asheville, NC, eat downtown and outside! This past weekend, the Practical Cook went on location to the mountains. Not only was she able to enjoy a picnic by a waterfall (score!), she ate a lot of great food around a town that is known for fantastic breweries every few feet. Today’s review is of Salsas.
The food was fantastic, the server was very helpful in helping us navigate our choices, and the beer was the size of the average bottle of wine. Yes, please. For the complete video account, roll the tape.
Why can’t I resist ordering something dramatic? And involving the word “shank?” One never knows. I would not recommend ordering this if you have a rambunctious toddler nearby. This dish was hot and a bit precarious. The kid at the next table was totally jealous of my goblet of fire.
And for the grand conclusion, my dinner:
What did my field research teach me? Don’t fear the heat, pair pork with fruit and peppers, and eat outside whenever possible. Most importantly, share food with friends, and it will always taste better. And I’m pretty sure a molcajete just made the Kitchen Tool Talk Wish List.
Overall, a great experience, highly recommended.
