Inside The Pizitz Food Hall "A Visit With Tropicaleo"

 The Pizitz Food Hall is a multi-tenant food court style establishment right in the heart of the Magic City. Inside you will find something for everyone. Everything from gourmet waffle dishes to Israeli cuisine. You can stick with your tried & true or try something new. There is something inside the Food Hall for you!

Having transitioned from pop-up dinners around the city, one of my favorite local businesses has a highly coveted spot inside of the new Pizitz Food Hall.
I stopped in to visit the winner of  Rev Birmingham's 2016 Big Pitch , Tropicaleo at the REVEAL Kitchen inside of the Food Hall.

Tropicaleo is the only restaurant that features authentic Puerto Rican cuisine at this location. The menu is simple but packed with several delicious options to choose from.

We started out with an order of their house made fried plantain chips. If you like plantains as much as I do, you will absolutely love these.

Next on the list,  their infamous Cuban sandwiches. I tried the Pulled Pork: slow cooked, moist pork tossed in a Sweet Guava BBQ sauce. Mmmmm. Heaven in your mouth. 😋😋
 My dinner companion had the Pollo Cuban sandwich: Chicken breast, hot, melted provolone cheese, topped with their "house sauce". Folks, these sandwiches are everything!

In addition to these amazing sandwiches, we could not resist the urge to try the Mofongo, a traditional Puerto Rican dish with an amazing flavor. This dish comes with a side of fragrant & flavorful Cilantro rice. The flavors of the Mofongo & rice blended perfectly.

For dessert, we each tried the flan topped with fresh strawberries. If you have never had flan, I suggest you put it on your bucket list of foods to try.

Not interested in trying the chicken or pork? You can always opt for one of their popular vegan menu items.

Stop in to Tropicaleo to experience some of the best that Birmingham has to offer.

Keep an eye out for their new Avondale/ Crestwood location coming in July 2017!
They will be located at 4426 4th Avenue South.
