A Taste of Paris in Downtown AVL

Macaroons or macarons...ūüßźdo you know the difference? Macaroons have a¬†shredded coconut base, while macarons consist of mostly almond flour (#glutenfree)!¬†¬†We recently felt transported to Paris with¬†‚ėēÔłŹ lattes and¬†macarons from Old Europe.¬†There's a reason they've been in business in downtown Asheville for¬†a quarter of a century, y'all.¬†We dig it!

Pork Belly skewers for lunch? 

Or perhaps unagi skewers, chicken thigh skewers or sea bass skewers... they're ALL delicious at Ukiah Japanese Smokehouse! We were psyched to get the heads up from Lizzy that in addition to dinner, Ukiah is now serving lunch 6 days a week from 12 pm to 2:30 pm. This place definitely deserves the buzz it has created around town.
