Looking for the real deal? Cecilia's food delivers. The Cubano sandwich rocks it! Our family also enjoys very authentic empanadas and crepes!
My wife and I visited on a Saturday night. Luckily they have outside seating because the place was almost full. Everything we had was just wonderful and the service was good too. We have come to Asheville for years and this was one of the best discoveries yet. Great food, great folks, and extremely reasonable prices.
Cecilia's is one of the best under-the-radar restaurants in Asheville. It's about four miles north of downtown, and parking is a bit weird because of the configuration of the lot, But the food is amazing! Terrific stews and soups, wonderfully eclectic salads, and homemade tamales that you can't get outside of Mexico City! It's a great place to escape the... 更多
I am a local and go to Cecilias often. I almost always get two of the Berenja (eggplant) empanadas. Yum! Great every time. Today Ceclia was alone and was still able to serve everyone and get the food out in a timely fashion. The place is casual, comfortable and it feels like she is your Aunt who you are visiting... 更多
We're visiting town and wanted to go a bit off the beaten path. Cecilia's is worth the 5 minute drive north from central Asheville. It's a small restaurant run by its friendly owner, Cecelia. She's from Argentina and makes fresh authentic homemade empanadas, tamales and soups, along with crepes (she explained that her husband was French). Everything we ordered was... 更多
Another small epicurean gem easily overlooked on Merrimon Avenue. The mole sauce is the best I've ever eaten. Both the tamales and empenyada were delicious. Plenty of meat with excellent seasoning. Cordial counter service. This business also include a food truck which I haven't frequented but it's my understanding that the food is the same.
My favorite is the market crepe - it is so delicious!!! The empanadas are great, too, and I love that you can buy them frozen and take them home. If I were hungrier, I would've tried the lentil coconut curry soup. I'm sure it is delicious.
Actually, Cecelia’s Kitchen isn’t hidden, but its tiny location—just north of Ingles on Merrimon Avenue in North Asheville—is easy to miss. And, we missed it for quite some time. This, as we discovered, was a mistake on our part. Cecilia, the Argentinean owner, operates not only this small restaurant, but she also has a food truck as well as another... 更多
My wife and I stopped in for dinner on our way in from Tennessee to attend a conference. Very glad we did as the Nacatamale, Berenjena empanada and mushroom tamale was simple and very tasty. Finished it off with a delicious, well-crafted sweet, chocolate crepe. Well, we will on coming back here again. Well worth it.
Driving around and looking for a spot Even though it was October, it still was a bit hot Looked this way and that and caught me a sign Said "empanadas" and so I went in to dine. Ok, that wasn't that great. But, the food here is.
