What’s Wowing Me Now

Food writer Jonathan Ammons lets us in on his favorite dish du jour.

Fried chicken and ham sandwich at WALK: I have long ignored the standard offerings at West Asheville Lounge and Kitchen in favor of the constantly changing specials menu. But WALK’s recent special of a fried chicken sandwich topped with thick-cut slices of ham and smothered in Swiss cheese was a revelation. It almost made me forget about the screaming of the restaurant’s football fans in their moment of bliss-point revelatory glee. I even made it more gluttonous with a dip or two in some ranch dressing. — Jonathan Ammons
