What up my peeps!? Many people in town are curious and intrigued by Mayan culture in Asheville, but did you know there is a beautiful and delicious meal named COCHINITA PIBIL with Mayan roots and guess what?! I had it a few, and sporadic times in Asheville, until I FOUND IT in the regular menu at LA RUMBA RESTAURANT LATINO YO!
Traditionally cooked for hours underground, and marinated for at least 24 hours, when you have this in the Peninsula of Yucatan it is an incredible experience.
Chef Mike from La Rumba is a very talented individual and he has adapted the recipe, because some ingredients are impossible to get in Asheville.
So, next time you are in the East side and you are hungry or you would like to try kick ass Mexican food this is the place.
