With Caribbean inspired cuisine, this casual and comfortable restaurant is a real gem in Asheville. If you live in the area and have never been or are considering a trip to the mountains of Western North Carolina, make sure you hit up this fantastic restaurant. Nine Mile is nestled in the heart of the historic Montford, one of the most beautiful neighborhoods in Asheville.
Not only are they are vegetarian and meat-eater friendly, but they are also gluten free friendly. The menu offers a lot of pasta and rice dishes (some with very clever names like More Fyah!), but if you’re feeling a little less hardy you can substitute your heavier pasta for their raw zucchini pasta substitute. The zucchini pasta is so thin that it cooks quickly with whatever else is in your requested dish, making it just like pasta – only zucchini. Pretty cool huh? And if you do want something hardy but gluten free there’s always the elbow quinoa pasta substitute. Yum yum.
If you are there for dinner, a very generous house salad comes with your meal. Their friendly staff, easy parking, clean, convenient location, everything is made fresh to order, fairly priced and practical portion sizes are just some of the many reasons why Nine Mile is a great dining out experience.
