I had the fried tofu and mac n cheese. Both were greatly disappointing. The tofu was fried but neither it nor it's batter was seasoned. I couldn't even finish the mac n cheese because it was so bad. We tried to add stuff to make it better but nothing could save it. I had tried someone's tater tot casserole and didn't care for it either. We had a group of 12 and most everyone seemed disappointed or at least not wowed. Someone who got the burger said it was 'it's ok, it's a burger'. My husband seemed to be the only one who thought his was good. My biggest regret is that we didn't go to Rosetta's instead :)

I agree with you. The southern fried tofu is plain unless you ask for it buffalo style or bbq style. Then it has a sauce. Their mac and cheese is bland as is their tt casserole. They have amazing other sides. All of their veggie sides are great and their mashed potatoes and gravy are too.

I thought the mac and cheese was pretty good! Nothing compared to homemade- not to be a braggart, but my mac and cheese is amazing-, but better than any other restaurant mac and cheese I've had, and apparently the mac and yease at Plum in Seattle is considered some of the best restaurant mac and cheese, but I've had that, too, and I'd rather have Bean's again.
Also had the fish sandwich and it was awesome! And those fried pickles... okay, I'm not missing Asheville at all. ......at all...

I usually try the mac n cheese at restaurants if it is available and it definitely was the worst. Really, I'm not one to turn down food that I paid for so I'll say that. Rosetta's, when they had mac n cheese was awesome. There are a couple soul food places in DC that have awesome mac n cheese (best I've had). I don't make it myself.

I know! I never got to meet you when you were here, or when I was in Seattle last year!

sniff! Aw, guys. I really, really miss Asheville. If I can manage to get over my shiitake, it's on the shortlist of places to move once I get my life back together. Hoping soon (like in the next year) to visit NC again and check out the coast, Charlotte, and Raleigh, as well as return to Asheville.

I LOVE Bean too...I actually like the plain fried tofu, but I do smother it in the dressing. I also LOVE the fried squash...I basically burn my mouth on it every time because I can't wait for it to cool. I liked the fried pickles too (my first time with fried pickles) and the pumpkin chocolate chip cheezecake was awesome. I've actually driven to Asheville (~45 minute drive one-way) numerous times just to eat there. I personally don't like Rosetta's (though I only ate there once about 10 years ago), so I guess that shows that taste varies.

Oh I dream about Rosetta's PB tofu and their gravy, and I don't even like gravy.

I love the fried squash too. So good. Their grilled zucchini is so yummy too. I had that pumpkin cheesecake for the first time yesterday and it was delicious. Not as delicious as the kit kat cake but I can't eat peanuts anymore. I could sing praises all day for bean. I love Rosetta's too but Bean is right down the street from my house and work and I feel much better about supporting a vegan business and their staff is WAY more pleasant. Not that I won't go to Rosetta's or anything but since being in Asheville for such a long time it has lost its excitement for me.

what's the weather like in Asheville in January?
we will be back in NC in January because my SIL is having a baby this month.
since they will have a newborn we dont want to be on top of them the whole time and i already forget everything that was there from our visit a little over a year ago.

im guessing not much hiking to be done in January?

There could be some hiking, it just may not be high elevation hiking.
