The Laughing Seed invites you to experience our expanded winter menu. We have broadened our culinary scope to include even more of our favorite flavors from around the world and to utilize the ... Read more
seasonal organic products coming to us from various regional growers, such as winter squash from North Fork Farms and Treadway Farms mushrooms. We are pleased to be featuring some other fantastic local products as well, such as Smiling Hara Tempeh, Three Graces Cheeses, Annie's Natural and City Bakery Breads, Lusty Monk mustard, Buchi Kombucha, and Green Man Ales to name a few. Plus we're now baking our burger buns, focacccia, pita and specialty breads in house! Global fusion is very much alive at the Laughing Seed. Dine with us, and you can experience the deep, slow cooked tastes of Thailand as well as the simple, but intensely satisfying flavors of the Mediterranean and Caribbean. Sunflower seed pesto and cashew nut ricotta form a deliciously satisfying filling for our raw Spinach Pesto Manicotti. Our sushi offering changes nightly, along with our pasta special and authentic Indian thali plate. And nothing comforts like our classic Harmony Bowl, Tempeh Reuben, or Tico Burrito. Along with reworking some old favorites, we're adding an authentic Szechuan kung pao dish, Pecan Crusted Seitan, a Korean style Bahn Mi sandwich and a few American classics. Our winter dessert menu includes a five spice chocolate chestnut torte, apple walnut toffee cake, and a bourbon pumpkin cheesecake.

I'm so far not sold though I will return and try something else. Both my bloody mary and my vegan sausage had way too much seasoning of the italian variety and the sausage was so vinegary that I had to pass it off to my boyfriend. The asparagus was just steamed, no flavor or sauce and still rather hard and the grits were a bit mush. The sweet potatoes in my hash were pretty good, but the onions were a bit overcooked and resembled mushrooms.

For the vegetarian, vegan and just plain food lovers. This is among the best restaurants in Asheville. The ambiance is very relaxing and the service always excellent. My husband who is NOT a vegetarian does not miss an opportunity to have a meal at the Laughing Seed.

A vegetarian spot with a little bit of everything including vegan and raw options, hooray! I appreciate all farm to table restaurants and this little baby has an added International spin on their menu, making it one of my favorite's in Asheville. Undoubtedly the cleanest restaurant with the friendliest staff of all my scrumptious discoveries. My biggest problem with this restaurant is the daunting task of choosing a single item when everything is calling my name! Fan favorites include, but not limited to: raw manicotti, pistachio crusted tempeh, and sloppy jo.
