|Buffalo Fried Brussels Sprouts ($6.95) at Highland Kitchen.|
This innovative twist on buffalo chicken bites is incredibly addictive. I happen to love both Brussels sprouts and buffalo sauce, but even those who aren't fans of the bite-sized cabbages can enjoy this dish. The crispy, saucy exterior complements the soft, "meaty" interior surprisingly well. Dunked in creamy, blue cheese dressing, these spicy bites of heaven are worth the wait for a table at this consistently popular Somerville joint.
