Swoon List: 5 Things We Adore Right Now

  1. The cool, refreshing prawn salad called goi tom thit at Sizzling Wok Thien Huong (7280 Michigan Rd., 317-298-9001), in which shrimp and slivered veggies wilted in a sweet marinade are topped with crushed peanuts and rice crackers for scooping.
  2. Fountain Square new arrival Bluebeard’s (653 Virginia Ave., 317-686-1580) Sanctuary cocktail, a pretty-in-pink shaken mixture of scotch and spirits with a kick—and a lingering essence of ginger, lime, and hibiscus. Suitable for hipsters and hummingbirds.
  3. The berry-laden Gingham Salad (basically a fruit salad on lettuce) at The End of the Line Public House (1105 Shelby St., 317-687-4857)
  4. Biscuits and Gravy from Uptown Cafe (809 Conner St., Noblesville, 317-674-8668).  It comes in a cup of steaming sausage gravy over a giant flaky biscuit.
  5. The B.A.L.T. (Bacon, Avocado, Lettuce, and Tomato) at Duos Kitchen (2960 N Meridian St., 317-508-8614). Crunchy French bread cradles all that goodness.
