Swoon List: 5 Things We Adore Right Now

  1. The old-school thin-crust pizzas—with that characteristic wafer-crisp crust under a layer of sweet house sauce—at Fountain Square’s Maria’s Original Pizza (1106 Prospect St., 317-786-9283).
  2. Tongue tacos at Guatelinda (3107 Lafayette Rd., 317-926-5754), tender hunks of meat tucked inside soft corn tortillas and topped with fresh cilantro and onion.
  3. Pearl Street Pizza’s (65 E. Pearl St., 317-638-3110) warm, cheesy breadsticks—really just naked pizza crust cut into planks that are soft inside and crispy around the edges.
  4. Velvety chicken korma, a basmati rice dish with a subtle spice tempered by coconut and slivered almonds, served exquisitely at Amber Indian Restaurant (12510 N. Meridian St., Carmel, 317-580-0828).
  5. The root beer float at Rock Cola Cafe (5730 Brookville Rd., 317-357-2233). A classic.
