Selection of chocolates from The Chocolate Fetish.
The Chocolate Fetish is a neat shop in Asheville, NC. I love that they make their own truffles including one with cayenne pepper (dark and delicious) and another with chai tea flavors. They also have a vibrant selection of chocolate dipped fruits (above I have kiwi, plum, peach, ginger and orange peel) and the rounds they do (raspberry almond pictured, with bites already taken!) are also a great. If I lived nearby I would be tempted to come in for a different piece every day! They do ship their chocolates if you need your fix and can't get to the shop.
The sign out front - really you do not want to miss this place.
For lunch we grabbed a bite at Cafe Ello, as the more famous places (Early Girl, Tupelo Honey etc.) had long waits, as usual. Their simple menu highlights breakfast items, sandwiches and a huge selection of teas. I enjoyed the chicken salad sandwich with greens - something about having a sandwich on a fresh, toasted croissant make it extra delicious. Asheville has many wonderful restaurants, definitely a nice place for a foodie to take a vacation. Hopefully I'll have a chance to visit again soon and post about more Asheville eateries.
