I find few things as gustatorily magical as fresh guacamole. This is the make-it-at-your-table guacamole at Cantina Laredo.

Cantina Laredo’s Top Shelf Guacamole, with charred jalapeno, red onion, and fresh lime, among other things. Marvelous! (Click for larger.)

I think it is the best in town, which triggers a little hey-man-that’s-a-chain guilt in me (though in my defense, it’s a small chain). I think Las Trojas is close. Haven’t been to Chuy’s yet, though I understand their guac game is strong too.

Where is your favorite guacamole in northern Alabama?

One of my favorite things about Huntsville Restaurant Week is participant diversity. Whatever you like, you’ll find something to please you.

Longtime readers know that I would be just fine eating Thai, Vietnamese, or Japanese every day for the rest of my life. So I was delighted to find Phuket on the list of participants this year. This is a favorite place for me to go and relax at lunch, and the green curry I had yesterday was spot-on.

This comes with a spring roll appetizer and a cup of the soup of the day for $10. Other entree options include Pad Thai and Phuket orange peel chicken.

Today I met Saintseester at Fresko Grille, at the Stovehouse development. It’s a Levantine joint, and frankly, that’s a highly rated cuisine for me too. The special includes a tabouli salad, shawarma delight (I got beef, but chicken is also available), and pita.

Excellent eats from the cradle of civilization. (Click for larger.)

This is a truly phenomenal town in which to eat. Check out Huntsville Restaurant Week for participants and specials running through this weekend!
