What up my peeps!? Many people in town are curious and intrigued by Mayan culture in Asheville, but did you know there is a beautiful and delicious meal named COCHINITA PIBIL with Mayan roots and guess what?! I had it  a few, and sporadic times in Asheville, until I FOUND IT in the regular menu at LA RUMBA RESTAURANT LATINO YO!

Cochinita pibil tacos

Traditionally cooked for hours underground, and marinated for at least 24 hours, when you have this in the Peninsula of Yucatan it is an incredible experience.

Chef Mike from La Rumba is a very talented individual and he has adapted the recipe, because some ingredients are impossible to get in Asheville.  

So, next time you are in the East side and you are hungry or you would like to try kick ass Mexican food this is the place.

NY Cuisine in Downtown Asheville? Zella’s Deli!

Zella’s Deli is a great option for those visiting, or living in the South, and  crave NY style cuisine. Asheville is  known as a place with great restaurants, and for the longest time has needed a deli.

Well, not long ago Zella’s Deli opened in downtown Asheville. This place has a variety of NY classics, today I had the joy of trying 3 different sandwiches

I had the Meatball sub, and it is AWESOME! 

Bread was soft, the meatballs were delicious and what I think made it great was the SAUCE! I ate it in record time.

I also had the Italian and the Reuben,

My second favorite has to be the Reuben mmmm, BOMBASTIC. 

For this one they have two options?! How? Why? Well, if you have a big appetite and you want to feel like you are in the big city, you can have a NY STYLE UPGRADE ! This means you can have it with an extra 1/2 LB MEAT 🤩

Coming soon asheville multicultural blog

The Italian was also tasty and the one that took me the longest to eat because its cold, and by now I had already eaten two sandwiches,  that is going to slow down anyone 😉 

Zella’s Deli is located in downtown Asheville at 48 College St.
