Five #IMSwoon things we’re craving for carryout right now.

Boneless chicken in vibrant tikka spices marinated for over 24 hours then slow cooked in a creamy red sauce served over rice and with a side of garlic naan from Chapati (4930 Lafayette Rd., Suite G, 317-405-9874). 

Tender barbacoa beef served over dense tamal corn cakes with pico de gallo, lime crema, and queso fresco, with a side of green rice and black beans from Delicia (5215 N. College Ave., 317-925-067).

An umami-rich taste of spring from Beholder (1844 E. 10th St., 317-419-3471) in the guise of classic Chinese takeout fried rice with shrimp, the first local ramps of the season, sweet onions, and dark soy.

A generously filled pabellón arepa with perfectly seasoned shredded beef, sweet plantains, black beans, and queso fresco from Cumaco Arepa House (9646 Allisonville Rd., 317-288-0844).

Why not add some sweetness to quarantine? Order a whole 6″ cake, in this case vanilla cake with vanilla icing and rainbow sprinkles, available for delivery (within 12 miles) from Confectioneiress (80 Brendon Way, Zionsville, 317-873-0880) . Orders placed by the end of the day will be delivered between 11am and 5pm the next day (except Sundays and Mondays).
