Pork & Pie in Marshall, NC (outside Asheville, NC)

Set in a historical building in the ghost town of Marshall, NC, Pork and Pie has a great atmosphere -in A Democratic Party environment
We arrived around 7 PM on a Friday night in early November(11/1}
to basically an empty restaurant -two tables were taken. It got a "little busier, later on)
They start the diner out with a complimentary basket of Pork Rinds
This maybe the worst food I have ever tasted in my meager 68 years of existence.
We both ordered the specials. Wife number 3 ordered Fried Catfish($16) served with aside of shrimp entonfte
(spelling) It was basically shrimp and rice- Excellent and loved
Dr Foodstein ordered Beef Short Ribs served with thin fries and a fabulous spinach saute EXCELLENT also $16 Both specials were the most expensive items on the menu and very ample portions to boot
The menu consists of Cajun dishes:Red Rice and Beans($8), Oysters ($10)
Osso Bucco , and some other Pasta dishes. The other side had very different and special choices of Pizza - which looked good- thin crust style
Great reasonably priced wine choices
The highlight for wife #3 was the white chocolate Bread Pudding
For whatever the reason NO BREAD PUDDING CAN BE FOUND in AVL
The Bill, with tip, came to $65( three glasses of wine @$6 per)
A little pricey, but well worth it, especially compared to downtown AVL
Service was enthusiastic. They want to exceed
Will return . This is a good restaurant choice for a difficult and demanding patron
Give it a try
The drive to Marshall is Fabulous Mountains and great light

Trader Joe's Yay/Nay Thread - October 2013 [old]

The town is ecstatic=Long lines opened Friday Been there 3 times
I came from North Cal - Bay Area
Two products I hate Tuna Fish And wine country chicken salad
Really Sucks
I have been shopping at Tj's since the day they went to Bay Area ( San Rafael) in 1990
These two items have been the only in my 23 years that I found distasteful

Asheville, one dinner:Admiral or Seven sows?

Admiral Hands Down
I think Seven Sows is too heavy on fatty meats and pork and anything unhealthy in this trend to crap
Just a take from a retired Cardiologist

just heard Asheville

just returned about an hour ago:
Harris had some good sales but those were opening week specials

Good salad ,hot and Asian bar

Deli section below par- no good salads (same Boars Head meats and cheeses as Ingles)and stuff like Fresh Market and Greenlife

15-20% higher prices than Ingels and not any where good a selection-especially general grocery
Wine prices much higher than Ingles and
Greenlife
Great Fish dept- even outshines Fresh Market
The Best part -they carry Beaver Cranberry Mustard which I have not seen since SF Bay Area

Pizza Pura VS. All Souls Pizza-Asheville

I understand that All Souls Pizza just opened on Clingman
Menu looks interesting . Seems the Pizza tends toward the Thin Crust(which I prefer)
Anybody tried both establishments?
Comparisons? and Preferences?
This may start the Pizza Wars
