Swoon List 6.18.13

5 Things We Adore Right Now
  1. A double-decker BLT spilling over at the edges with crisp oven-cooked bacon—one of the specialties of the house at Just Judy’s (5018 E. 62 St., 317-254-8796).
  2. The hearty Balance Bowl from Duos Kitchen (2960 N. Meridian St., 317-508-8614), a better-than-salad melange of spinach, brown rice, black beans, farm-raised egg, red peppers, scallions, cilantro, and smoky chipotle aioli. We like to add tofu for $1.50 more.
  3. A glass of sweet, cold coconut juice with chunks of coconut meat floating in the crushed ice, at K&T Deli (3738 Lafayette Rd., 317-602-2416).
  4. A BLT embellished with chipotle mayo, banana peppers, and avocado—hot off the panini press at Bloomingfoods Market and Deli in Bloomington.
  5. The perfectly sweet fried plantains and well-spiced black-eyed pea cake, two side dishes at Nairaland (4718 Century Plaza Rd., 317-295-1019), part of the new Beautiful Shades soul food and event complex on the near Westside.
