We’re always finding new eats in Huntsville that are as out-of-the-box as they are delicious.

This February, we dined on some delicious eats (and drinks!) here in Huntsville—and these were the best.

1. Pollo Bowl (but make it veggie) at La Esquina

At La Esquina in downtown Huntsville, they have a Pollo Bowl that you wouldn’t think is vegetarian-friendly, right? But, if you look at the little text at the bottom, you’ll see that you can make it veggie. It was a perfectly balanced bowl with flavorful rice and beans, grilled veggies, a juicy portabello, guacamole and—my favorite part—bits of charred pineapple throughout.

2. Sweet Potato Hushpuppies at Farm Burger

“Served with a side of apple butter for dipping. Great as a side, an appetizer or as a meal itself.”

3. Leafly Pink Drink at Leafly Boba

“The grilled cheese at Sea Salt took the Adult Grilled Cheese game to the next level. The addition of delicious lump crab meat and the balance of spicy sriracha and sweet peach chutney made every bite a unique experience.”
