Why do you go on vacation? Is it for relaxation, to see sights, to get away from the business of life? Personally, I go for the food. Okay, not only for the food, but that’s about 85% of the reason I want to go. We had heard the food in Asheville was good, but it was better than good, it was amazing.
After our mile long hike in the Pisgah National Forest we were all ravenously hungry and stopped to eat some Hawg Wild BBQ. I scarfed down my sandwich before I could get a picture of it. Sorry.
The neat thing about this place is that they serve both Eastern and Western BBQ.
We went with the Italiano (of course). What we received were Kettle Style Potato Chips covered in Sun-Dried Tomatoes, Pecorino Romano, Fresh Basil, Balsamic Vinegar and Sea Salt. Scrumptous.
On Wednesday morning we had breakfast where else, at the Bed and Breakfast. It was my first time to have a three course breakfast.
We started with fresh fruit.
For lunch we ate at The Cantina and had the most amazing…tacos…ever. We both had one shrimp and one steak taco. I had hard shells, but Paul had corn tortillas. I think he made the better selection on shells. But hard or soft, these things were incredible. The steak was tender, the shrimp succulent. The veggies were grilled to perfection. And the FLAVOR! Powerful flavor in every bite.
Thanks Asheville for the good times…and the food. Oh, the food.
