Swoon List: Festiva, The Tamale Place, And More
Five things we’re craving right now.
The jumbo wedge salad served with bacon, diced tomatoes, and chunks of bleu in both dressing and cheese form at McCormick & Schmick’s (110 N. Illinois St., 317-631-9500).
The Smack & Cheese from BurgerFuel (6320 Guilford Ave., 317-405-8362) is 100 percent
A chunky steak taco, traditionally topped with chopped onion and cilantro, from The Tamale Place (222 E. Market St., 317-423-2203) in City Market.
The meaty and tender mole short rib at Festiva (1217 E. 16th St., 317-635-4444), whose smoky, rich sauce with a restrained sweetness balances perfectly against a creamy sweet-potato purée.
The tangy, hearty, totally vegetarian samosa chaat from Noor Indian Grocery & Kitchen (8028 S. Emerson Ave., 317-559-6624), which features a whole range of Northern and Southern Indian street foods and curries from a surprisingly affordable counter menu board.
