There is one more dining option on Snowshoe Mountain and this time it is a Fork You favorite. I was enjoying a Almost Heaven Amber in the pub at Mountain State Brewing Co. last Thursday and got the scoop the Taste of Asia is opening a location in the Snowshoe Village. MSB owner, Willie Lehmann, reported that they delivered a keg of Seneca Indian Pale Ale to their new location. You might of seen Willie on the Travel Channel’s Bizarre Foods chowing on some of his grandmother’s Swiss treats with Andrew Zimmern. He siad he has gotten exactly three perks from that TV appearance. The day affter the show aired he was able to the skip the line and got a free burger at Ray’s Hell Burger the day after Obama’s visit. He got a warning instead of a ticket from one of West Virginia’s finest. And in Morgantown he was treated to a drink. It seems you need to take advantage of that 15 minutes before it dries up.

On Tuesday night, May 5th, at 10 pm Eastern Time, be sure to watch “Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern” on The Travel Channel for the episode entitled “Appalachia”.
Andrew will visit two West Virginia locations in this episode: Ember at Snowshoe Mountain Resort and The Hutte Restaurant in Helvetia.
“The Hutte Restaurant”, pronounced hoottay, is located at 1 Main Street in Helvetia and serves authentic Swiss/German food. The interior is filled with Swiss & American antiques to give you plenty to look at while dining. It’s only 30 miles from Buckhannon, but takes about an hour to drive, given the curvy, two-lane road. On Sundays, a country buffet called “Bernerplatte” that features many Swiss delights is served and reservations are recommended by calling 304.924.6435.
At Ember, Andrew enjoys several different preparations of squirrel, including squirrel brains. Ember is located on top of Snowshoe Mountain and serves dinner daily starting at 5 pm. They are closed for a portion of the year – the restaurant will reopen May 22. Call 304.572.1111 for reservations.
Fork You reported on the taping of this episode back in November.
