Ok sushi lovers, a new spot is coming to town named Mr. Sushi, so get ready to try it out and let us know how it is. Now there are lots of places all around the world named Mr. Sushi, but as far as we know, this is a local spot that stands on its own. They are located in the Market Center gas station, where Bojangles used to be, but don’t go just yet as they are currently under construction. But as soon as they open, you know we will be one of the first people to have a taste.
Dr. Greene and the folks over at Asheville Vision Associates in Biltmore Park have launched a Date Night for 2 Giveaway on Facebook that is going pretty viral. You can win dinner for 2 at Luella’s, dessert for 2 at YaYa’s, and a movie at the Regal Grande. After reading the hundreds of comments, it seems like everyone needs a break, a date, a night out; and if possible with the person they love. The contest goes on until November 21, 2016 so you still have time to enter. See the Asheville Vision Associates – Biltmore Park Facebook Page for more info!
There are times we go for weeks at a time without a burger. Asheville has such a variety of food options that the choices are sometimes overwhelming. The past few days have not been one of those times. We actually stopped by two places and ordered a cheeseburger that made us very happy that we did.
The first was Farm Burger in south Asheville. I ordered a burger with cheese, a fried egg, pork belly, tomatoes, onions, ketchup and mayo. And this burger tasted incredible.
The second was The Social in east Asheville. I ordered a simple cheeseburger with lettuce, tomatoes, onions, ketchup and mayo. And again, I was brought to a very tasteful place in my mouth and life.
I do not know who makes your favorite burger, but these are two spots that are definitely worth checking out. And both of these places have different personalities. Farm Burger is very burger-centric, while The Social is like a family friendly dive bar with pool tables, dart boards, and entertainment just about every night of the week. And both have have their place in the Asheville Foodie Community. Thank you for making some great burgers!
So I was working today, and stuck doing so. That was until a tweet came across the screen from Sweeten Creek Brewing in South Asheville talking about their lunch specials. One was a ham with double Swiss cheese, and the other was hot shaved beef sub. So I abandoned ship and headed that way. I had been here before, but this was the first time I was here when they were open. The two previous times I was invited here by someone who did not check the hours, so was glad to finally enter the doors.
Upon arrival, I ordered a Brown Ale, because I was at a brewery. Now they had some non-beer non-alcoholic drinks, but I that’s for the kiddos.
I got my sandwich and it was so delicious. The macaroni salad was pretty good too. This place could easily stand with any sandwich shop in the Asheville area.
Great spot with a nice beer bar, indoor space, and lots of outdoor space. It is a little hard to find, but once you get here, you will definitely enjoy!
