Eat Indy

Here's a quick list of my favorite eateries around town in Indianapolis, IN.
  1. India Garden, the buffet is amazingly varied and the staff is excellent. The decor is very pretty also.
  2. Brugge Brassierie, the location and ambiance is authentic Belgian-pub style atmosphere. The beers and mussels and fries are scrumptious. My kids love the food too.
  3. Thai Spice on the border of Greenwood, they make a wonderful ginger-spiced goong-ob with the freshest shrimp in Indy. This is complimented well by their ginger tea.
  4. Yats. Cajuny goodness, and the best place for crawfish in town. The red beans and rice is a kid-friendly favorite.
  5. Le Peep for breakfast. The granola blues for rich carb satisfaction. The coffee is well brewed, and flows as freely as the wi-fi. FYI Chicago has Le Peep locations too.
  6. Jockamo pizza in Irvington. Exotic pizzas, spacious tables and quick service. The BBQ Chicken pizza is great.
  7. Cafe Patachou, the sandwiches are fresh fresh fresh and delicious.
  8. Hisago Japanese restaurant, fresh tasty sushi ad a dinner special makes it economical.
  9. St Elmo's, get the shrimp cocktail. Twice. It is world famous, and unlike most things that claim that distiction, this one is deserved. Scrumptious. A nice before-show date stop for a quick appetizer and drink.
  10. Bosphorous cafe. I traveled in Turkey, and attest that the food is authentic. The owner is a gentleman who oversees the restaurant personally and knows regular customers well. The hummus is tasty, the bread is fresh-made, and the vegetarian dishes are delightful for those restricting their diet or not. The lamb is good too.
  11. Claddagh Irish Pub has tasty fish and chips, and the mussel appetizer is great. Again, they have Illinois locations too.
  12. Bub's burgers and ice cream. Good old-fashioned generous burgers and hand-dipped shakes. Unusual options such as Elk burgers available too.
Thanks David Mark for the inspiration for this post.
