Eat well, travel often they say!

The week before Christmas, Stacey, Morgan and I took a short trip to Asheville, North Carolina. We stayed in the cutest cabin in Black Mountain (compliments of Morgan’s family friend – thank you, Ms. Lisa!), ate a lot of delicious food and drank an excessive amount of craft beer. When in Asheville, amiright?
I love a mountain town (much preferred over a beach) and instantly fell in love the “San Fran of the South.” Here’s a little photo diary of how we (quite literally) ate our way through Asheville in 36 hours.
Not to sound dramatic, but our meal at Cúrate (coo-rah-tay) was one of the best meals I’ve ever had. If you find yourself in Asheville, I highly recommend making a dinner reservation. Our server guided us through their vast, yet thoughtful, tapas menu and made suggestions on what to order and when. Who knew fried eggplant (berenjenas la taberna) pairs perfectly with rosemary ice cream? Our waiter knew, that’s who – God bless him. They have an extensive wine list but I set my sights on a gin + tonic … naturally. They serve you a generous pour of gin over ice with a cucumber slice and juniper berries then give you a Fevertree Tonic to add to your liking.
Saturday was spent hopping from brewery to brewery. I was pleasantly surprised on how affordable beer flights were. Asheville is definitely one of the more cost-friendly destinations I’ve visited lately. (Looking at you, San Francisco…breaking my bank!) First stop was Wicked Weed, then Green Man, and lastly Burial Beer Co. Not sure if it was a blessing or a curse that my phone died before our last stop. 😉
