Swoon List: Turf Kitchen, Rebar Indy, and More

Five things we adore right now.

The massive Pete’s Pride sandwich from Turf Catering + Kitchen (8155 Castleway Court West, 317-288-0173). Five types of Hayden Farms pork—roasted pork, pulled pork, pork belly, butter-smoked bacon, and pork rillettes—fill a housemade roll, with sweet-tart pickles cutting through the meaty richness.

Thick, sturdy fried green tomatoes served with scoops of bright chow chow relish and a salad dressed with tomato vinaigrette at Rebar Indy (20 N. Delaware St., 317-685-5100).

Scratchtruck‘s Polenta & Black Bean Cake, packed with red peppers, onions, and jalapeño. It’s topped with avocado purée and pico and is at its best with a side of poutine fries tossed in housemade chicken gravy and mozzarella cheese curds.
