Road Trippin to Asheville

 

 

ROAD TRIPPIN TO ASHEVILLE: So, December 8th was my fiance’s birthday and we wanted to take a roadie for the day to eat our hearts out and explore the city. I literally haven’t been to Asheville since like circa 2008, so ALOT has changed since. The city is still as beautiful as I remember it. Right when we got into the city our first stop on my list was Biscuithead. This breakfast was out of this world fantastic. From the nice peeps we met, to the service and the food, ALL were outstanding and I give this place 2 thumbs up. We started out with maple sriracha sausage, peach bacon, and smoked grits. Next, we had this amazing mimosa fried chicken biscuit. The highlight was ALL of it and also there was a homemade jam jelly bar. SAY WHAAAAAATTTT!!! Yeah, true story…. There were so many options I couldn’t chose a favorite. Loved them all. 2nd stop on my list was 12 Bones Smokehouse. I mean come on, being from Alabama, you GOTTA have bbq on a trip and I heard 12 Bones was the place to get the best! So, what better way to get my piggy fix on than getting Ribs smothered in a blueberry chipotle sauce, pickled okra, and some mac n cheese. Yep, I knew right when we walked in it was going to be amazing…. some of the best ribs I’ve had hands down in my whole entire life. Normally, at lunch time there is a line out the door, like 30 people deep….no joke…I’m still dreaming about those fall of the bone smokalicious st. louis ribs. Definitely a must if y’all head to Asheville. 3rd and final stop for the birthday boy’s dinner, was Korean House. Save the best for last…..I needed Korean BBQ  before the ride home. Of course I got my faves, the bulgogi, dumplings, and all the little dishes. Bulgogi is probably the most well known of Korean dishes and it was sooooooo good. So flavorful and cooked to perfection. It’s great because you get lettuce so you have the option to make bulgogi lettuce wraps with pickled daikon and other great veggies and kimchi. A Korean meal staple. Charlotte definitely needs a great Korean food joint, like not americanized, but an authentic Korean bbq spot. Living in NYC, there were sooooo many options, like there literally was a street called Korea Way that had the best of the best korean bbq spots in the city. Anywho, we had an amazing time and what a great way to end the night before our drive home.
