Unknown Hinson - March 15, 2014

Don't beware of the ides of March, because Unknown Hinson is in town. Headed over to Asheville with Masa. We dined at a place called Blue Kudzu Sake Company. To my understanding, one of the few places in the states that brews sake.

I ordered shrimp and grits. From the menu: "Steamed shrimp with crispy pork belly and fresh pico de gallo over dashi grits with a hint of wasabi for a little kick of spice, finished with green onions." Yo can see Masa's sake sampler in the background.

Masa and also shared a blue fin tuna carpaccio

Manhole Covers

I am almost surprised that I remembered the (funny) term to refer to these things.

This one, in Cullowhee, NC, was made just up the road from my hometown, in East Jordan, MI.

This one, also in Cullowhee, was imported all the way from India.


This one's local; made in Asheville.

"Telephone." Nice design
