The Swoon List compiles our latest food-and-drink favorites. They’re not ranked, just delicious.
Delicia’s (5215 N. College Ave., 317-925-0677) aji de gallina: a mound of shredded chicken and white rice atop a pool of creamy, spicy chili-walnut sauce, topped with slices of hardboiled egg and olives.
One bite into the glittered exterior of a salted-caramel macaron at Cake Bake Shop (6515 Carrollton Ave., 317-257-2253) reveals a heavenly, rich caramel filling—it’s a treat that’s as pretty as it is delicious.
Perfectly tender veal meatballs at Mama Carolla’s (1031 E. 54th St., 317-259-9412), perched on a pile of pappardelle pasta that’s tossed in a savory vodka-tomato cream sauce with spinach and mushrooms.
The hearty, slightly spicy chili-cheese etouffee at Yats (see yatscajuncreole.com for locations), strewn with crawfish.
Repeal’s (630 Virginia Ave., 317-672-7514) egg-wrapped Szechwan Pork Burger, topped with fiery chili sauce, mozzarella, and grilled green onion. Upgrade your chips to a side of lightly battered, perfectly crispy onion rings.
