Paddy and I went on a Asheville Food Tours lunch junket to the new Bold Rock Hard Cider brewery Downtown on Lexington Ave. I had a very tasty cheesesteak, a side salad, and some yummy fried okra. Paddy had a fried chicken sandwich.

I went on another food adventure, with my friends Luis & Rick, to Smiley’s Flea Market, where we ate awesome food from Fiesta Foods and then walked around for a bit. The market was closing down, but I took a few pics, and we’ll have to go earlier next time. And YES to a next time for sure! ?

I went on a fun food adventure with my friend Mark, who picked me up and drove me out to the Asheville Outlets to eat at the The Spotted Banana Asheville! It was delish! We had smoothies, a smoothie bowl, and two sandwiches, all of which were super-tasty! The chicken salad on croissant was classic, and totally on point, the smoothies are 100% bomb, and  the smoothie bowl was something special, as you can tell from the pictures. High recommends for this food cart! Thanks, Mark, and owner Tasha, and her helper that day, Kyle for this fun food adventure! ❤️

This strawberry smoothie was a highlight. Worth a trip to the Outlet Mall

I had a very tasty and enjoyable meal with my dear friends Jill & Jimmy at The Madness – Sushi, Burger & Bar! There were at least three standout dishes, including the “rice crispies,” fried jalapeños, and Madness fries. The sushi and burgers were also bangin’! This place is a winner for the people of West Asheville.

I took a road trip to, and a guided tour of Brevard today, with my friend and partner on the food pod, Josh. I started with a piece of rugelach from Well-Bred Bakery and Cafe in the Grove Arcade, where Josh picked me up in his Jeep.

The drive was pretty and we saw some food trucks along the way. We stopped to eat at a cute little restaurant called Marco Trattoria, where we had some pretty amazing mussels, Josh got some seafood pasta that he let me taste, and it was great. I got the house burger, which was fine, but I feel like I should have ordered Italian food. LOL I’m a dumb ass. There’s a bakery next to Marco‘s that looked incredibly interesting — like almost weird-interesting — but they are closed on Tuesdays, so I’ll have to go back! From there, we hit the road again and Josh showed me the Brevard Lumber Arts District, and a bunch of his other bad-ass properties in Brevard, which I’ll post pictures of next. Today was a very fun day!

On my day-long tour of Brevard with my friend and Food Pod partner, Josh, he showed me the Brevard Lumber Arts District, and a bunch of other really frickin’ cool buildings and spaces that he owns. Some are occupied by cool businesses already. Some are spoken for and about to be occupied. Others are empty but ready for occupants. And some are in the process of being made ready for occupants. In my mind, I see restaurants, breweries, distilleries, food trucks, art galleries, and comic book shops. Aaaaand that’s pretty much what Josh is interested in too. He straight up told me that he wants me to find people to fill these spaces. I told him I’ll do what I can, because I can totally imagine super cool shit happening in them. Anyhoo, I’m looking forward to my next road trip to Brevard! I wanna try allll of the restaurants! And I gotta go back to Marco Trattoria to order pasta. ?❤️
