Swoon List 4.9.13

  1. Lick’s creamy root beer vanilla bean ice cream from Eggshell Bistro (51 W. City Center Dr., Carmel, 317-660-1616), served in an old-fashioned parfait glass with tiny, cute spoons. The vanilla beans give the treat a true flavor boost.

  2. Miso-marinated blackened tofu taco from La Chinita Poblana (927 E Westfield Blvd., 317-722-8108). The taco comes packed with carrot-habanero sauce, napa cabbage, mint, cilantro, and bean sprouts.

  3. Johnny salad from Bakersfield Mass Ave (334 Massachusetts Ave. 317-635-6962), with nubs of bacon, salty Cotija cheese, almonds, hearts of palm, and luscious avocado.

  4. Plate-sized lemony blueberry pancakes, stacked four high, at The Capital Grille (40 W. Washington St., 317-423-8790).

  5. The spicy-sweet and deceivingly potent tej (or honey wine) from Major Restaurant (1150 S. Mickley Ave., 317-240-2700). It arrives in a beaker-like carafe.
