Guess who’s coming to Asheville today?!! I’m headed into town to do some shopping and have lunch with a friend, so I’m hoping to see him 🙂 I’ll let you know!
When Nathan’s parents Alex and Mary Jo were here, we spent some time exploring downtown Asheville. We stopped at a great restaurant that’s been featured in the blog world (Kath and Jenna) before…Laughing Seed Cafe! It is a great vegetarian restaurant that serves lots of global dishes as well as twists on comfort food. We had never been there before but of course had heard great things and we knew it was dog friendly 🙂 Asher came along and we were able to get a seat on the patio.
We had a great view of a wall climbing gym across the street…
I wasn’t sure what to order…
But ended up going with the Crispy Asian Dumplings…”A vegan wonton wrapper filled with organic cabbage, organic carrot, ground organic tempeh, fresh garlic, and fresh ground ginger root, fried light until crispy. Served with papaya ponzu sauce and a balsamic/soy drizzle.” YUMMY!
Alex got a glass of local Kombucha (fermented tea) that was on draught…. (Hi Asher!)
We were a bit unsure of how it would taste but it was quite good! I found some great information about the drink here.
I had trouble posing for a picture 🙂 Couldn’t get rid of the nose/black teeth shadow!
