When Zan and I passed through Asheville, North Carolina, during our Summer 2011 Road Trip, we decided to eat at Rosetta’s Kitchen. It sounds like a Southern Comfort-style place, but it’s actually a hippie, healthy restaurant that serves breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner and even late-night.
More than one person told us to check it out and it just so happened that we walked right past it one day. This is the view of the seating area from the street.
We of course went around the block and headed up into the restaurant, which was very cute, open and airy, with interesting free-form decorations. They serve creative dished made from fresh whole foods, with a focus on local and seasonal ingredients. Since we’d been on the road for days and days, eating in gas stations and State Fairs, we decided it was time for salads.
I had a small kale salad; sautéed with onions and I think miso, it was simple but very good.
Zan had a mixed salad with tempeh, fermented soy bean patty. She ate it all but I tried a bite and didn’t like it one bit. Ever since, I’ve steered clear of tempeh, but that’s just my personal preference. The restaurant was great, the type of place I would frequent if I lived in Asheville.
