Food writer Jonathan Ammons lets us in on his favorite dish du jour.
The ramen at Heiwa Shokudo in downtown Asheville: Holy crap, what a great bowl of absolutely slurpful goodness! A dense dashi stock lays the base for a ridiculously good ramen that in no way resembles the packaged trash you drunkenly devoured in college. An insanely dense pork belly is the icing on the cake and makes Heiwa’s ramen a perfect munchie. I still love you Heiwa, no matter what Stu Helm says.
