Swoon List: 5 Things We Adore Right Now


  1. The fresh No Name Salsa sold on Saturday mornings at the Greenwood Farmers Market. Go for the mild or medium version, which set off the peppers, onions, and garlic.
  2. The banana walnut French toast at Hoaglin To Go (448 Massachusetts Ave., 317-423-0300)—moist, dense banana-nut bread that’s sliced thick, fried, and dusted with powdered sugar. Suitable for breakfast or dessert.
  3. Spit-roasted pork tacos al pastor served in a double layer of mini crispy-edged corn tortillas, topped with a sweet-spicy salsa made with five types of chiles at the Taco Veloz truck stationed at 2475 W. Washington Street. Between bites, sip a cup of refreshing cucumber water.
  4. Chocolate tiramisu at Palomino (49 E. Maryland St., 317-974-0400), which replaces the lady fingers with brownie-like slabs of cake and adds a topping of crushed biscotti.
  5. Black Acre’s (5632 E. Washington St., 317-207-6266) charcuterie plate. The rotation of cured meats and cold cuts might include slivers of deliciously fatty, gamey duck prosciutto, fiery salami, or a silky mortadella.
