The latest Indianapolis Monthly has a depressing cover for fans of local food. I haven’t talked much about local food or businesses lately, and this article has re-motivated me. Here’s a few places I’ve been recently that I recommend:
Taiwan Tea House. I have to say that it is the best Chinese place I’ve visited in Indy. I don’t get to Castleton much, but now if I happen to get stuck there I have a go-to place.
Zest. This gem is only a few blocks from my house, and do they ever serve some rocket fuel for coffee. Great breakfasts.
Brugge. Can’t go wrong with quality craft beer, crepes, and fries with 12 dipping sauces.
Sam’s Saloon. What a sweet atmosphere. Former brothel built in 1873 that has been beautifully preserved. Hope they get better beer, though.
Vaquero Chicano. Freshly made chips, right out of the frier. Tacos are the real deal.
And a place to keep an eye on in Fountain Square:
Brass Ring Lounge. Has anyone been there yet?
