I had heard that the chicken salad at Nani’s Rotisserie Chicken was real good, and I’m telling you what, it was great! Maybe the best I’ve ever had. No exaggeration. Should we have a chicken salad throw-down in Asheville? Who’s got your fave? Who would you like to see competing?

Hi, WAX! I hope your week is off to a good start. I have a lunchtime suggestion. ? I had an EXCELLENT Philly from
Montford Deli / Montford Deli that I recommend 100% for Philly fans! The size, price, flavor, texture, and presentation were all on point, and I loved it! I also got a slaw dog, and some wings, which were likewise excellent. I’m becoming a huge fan on this little deli! So if you hungry, you’re a meat eater, and like this kind of food, I think you’ll become a fan too. I got mine delivered fresh, hot and delicious by Kickbackavl of course!

Beignets, Beigtches! I went to Bebettes Grove Arcade Asheville, NC today and got an order of their excellent confections, cut into “fingers.” Yum! Super recommend!

Alright, real talk time… Who’s been to Bebettes Grove Arcade Asheville, NC and how do you feel about the beignets? I’ve only had authentic beignets in NOLA once, at Café Du Monde, and I loved them! As far as I can tell, Bebettes beignets are excellent! But I wanna hear from those among you who really know your beignets. Any NOLA natives care to weigh in?

Here’s the latest episode of the Food Fans podcast, with Rick, Luis, and me in the producer’s seat for the first time, recording at WPVM 103.7 Community radio featuring the arts & culture of Asheville. We talk about all things food related, plus we veer into other subjects, related and tangential. Rick ate wings. Luis ate some gator legs. We discuss.
