Asheville, NC recommendations?
loretta's on college. best sandwich in downtown, by far (especially npw that viva europe has been closed). its only open lunch monday- friday. get to 12 bones, please, in the river/arts district. only open for lunch monday -friday. over easy cafe on broadway for breakfast/lunch(get breakfast) only open wednesday-sunday. ali baba in grove arcade for mediterranean priced by the pound. little havana across from grove arcade for a cuban (mmmm).
While Rosetta's and City Bakery Cafe are the only places that qualify as "dirt cheap," these are my favorites at the lower end of the price scale:
Salsa on Patton Ave. for Caribbean-fusion
Doc Chey's on Biltmore Ave. for Asian-fusion
The Early Girl Eatery on Wall St. for breakfast
The Laughing Seed on Wall St. for vegetarian/vegan
Rosetta's Kitchen on Lexington for vegetarian "soul food"
Tomato Cuchina Latina on Patton for Salvadoran
City Bakery Cafe for sandwiches, salads, and baked goodies
