Cute, casual, and classy, The Laughing Seed Café is the perfect spot to grab lunch or have a nice night out. The staff is super friendly and I was greeted as soon as I walked in. A nature inspired color scheme and plenty of natural light instantly makes you relax and feel at home.
As always, it took me awhile to decide what to order. The menu includes vegan, vegetarian, raw, and/or gluten-free options. To start, I ordered the Jalapeño-Onion Fries ($6.00). Super crispy and well-done, these fries were exactly what fries should be. Served up with creamy and slightly spicy Chipotle Ranch dip, these were pretty addicting. As far as the jalapeño peppers and onions go… Well there were a few in there, but based on the name, I expected them to be a bigger component of the app, but I’m glad they weren’t. These were perfect as they were.
For my meal, I order the Asian Fusion Salad, and what I ended up getting was a massive mountain of vegan deliciousness. A slightly sweet peanut sauce covered udon noodles, carrots, onions, sprouts, broccoli, radish, cabbage, which was all topped with sunflower and pumpkin seeds. This thing was so fresh and flavorful it was well worth the $13.00 they charged for it. I ate some there, and actually got two more meals out of it when I took it home.
Dig it! The creative menu and fresh ingredients makes this the place to be in downtown Asheville. With so many options, I will be back for sure! If you go, let me know what you try!
