Respond to Review of Rosetta's Kitchen
Review: For years I wanted to visit this vegan mecca, so Rosetta's was the first place I stopped at when I first visited Asheville, and the food, overall, didn't disappoint. However, I live in the northern part of the U.S., so maybe this is normal for NC, but dining in Rosetta's was like sitting in an oven! There was a huge open window, with no screen, with limited seats that provide great street views ... but, there still didn't seem to be any air circulation in the joint. You order at the counter, seat yourself and bus your own tables, which can lead to you having to clean a table that the previous diner decided not to before being able to sit down; this is not a place for germaphobes. The portions were large; for one of the very few times in my life (maybe due to the heat, though) I couldn't finish what I ordered. The "soul food" was great, I really liked the vegan mac n cheese, but the item I was most looking forward to, the peanut butter fried tofu, is the only thing I've had here that I wasn't crazy about. It is very perplexing to me, that I didn't like it, since it sounded like something I'd go crazy over. Even more bizarre was that my omnivore companion who never, ever eats tofu happily devoured it when I didn't want it ... I must be the only person who just doesn't like it. My suggestion: if you are stopping by Rosetta's in the summer and aren't from the south, get a bunch of food (including dessert) from here to go.
