Good News for Asheville

March 25, 2010

Like we need any more reasons to wish for sunshine instead of snow, here’s yet another:  The Euromarket Cafe is set to open, but not until the absolute last snowflake has landed on these cold mountains.

If you already make it a regular practice to head over to the Euromarket for Tarragon soda, red caviar, and Polish chocolate bars, then you are aware of this thrilling new epicurean venture on the horizon.  Asheville’s premier Eastern European market is about to start serving food, at an incredibly low price too!

For years now, I have put Eastern European on the top of the list of “foods we can’t get here,” and I am totally psyched those dark days are coming to an end.  Slowly but surely, WNC is becoming the culinary tour d’ force I have long awaited.

Located on the corner of Patton Ave and Haywood Rd in West Asheville, the Euromarket Cafe plans on serving lunch and dinner, offering  such hearty menu items as Russian Borscht, Armenian eggplant stew, and Ukhafish soup.  They will offer all manner of blintzes stuffed with meat, chicken, cabbage, or sweet cheese, plus large meat dumplings called gutabs, caviar sandwiches, marinated platters, vegetarian plates, and Bosnian coffee.

Each of these dishes range in price from 5-$9!  Not to mention, of course, they will serve a variety of Eastern European beers and wines.  Grab any beer from the shelves and crack it open for $4.50.

Tonight, when you kneel for your daily prayer/affirmation/meditation for an end to the dreary white stuff, be sure to add a hail mary/light a candle/chant/sun salute for the Euromarket Cafe.  I’m ready to finally hear the famous Russian words    Priiatnogo appetita!*

*Bon Appetit in Russian.  Nobody in Russia really ever says that.

    Yay for Eastern European food! Now if we could only get a deli with decent bagels, reubens and pickles and some cheap street-style falafel we’ll be in business!
