Swoon List: 5 Things We Adore Right Now

  1. The tender carnitas in fresh corn tacos, served with a fiery red Diablo sauce at Tacos al Carbon, the kind of food truck that you’ll never see roaming Broad Ripple in the wee hours. This spotless restaurant on wheels parks in a rutted lot on East Washington Street, near Post Road.
  2. The humble graham crackers from The Measuring Cup (Get them at the Indy Winters Farmers Market.) The gluten- and dairy-free homemade brown squares have hints of honey, cinnamon, and clove.
  3. Danny’s Throw Down Breakfast at Zest (1134 E. 54th St., 317-466-1853), an a.m. feast of scrambled eggs, steaming sausage gravy loaded with pepper, and tender, flaky biscuits.
  4. The doughnuts at King David Dogs (135 N. Pennsylvania St., 317-632-364). The plain yeast has a perfectly sweet crackly glaze, but the bacon-chocolate-peanut butter version hits the salty, sweet, sweet jackpot.
  5. The new veggie soft tacos at Revolucion (1132 Prospect St., 317-423-9490), white corn tortillas folded around roasted potatoes, corn, and peppers. Best when finished with a squirt of Pink Death hot sauce.
