Swoon List: Mikado, Elena Ruz, And More

Pork dumplings by Mikado

Suzanne Krowiak

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

Pork wonton dumplings with chili oil, ordered on Market Wagon, made by Mikado Japanese Restaurant (148 S. Illinois St., 317-972-4180).

A collection of Cuban culinary delights including chicken croquettes, beef-chicken-and-Wisconsin-cheese-curds empanadas, delicately crispy mariquitas (fried plantain strips), and super flavorful Miami garlic fries at Elena Ruz at Black Circle Brewing Co. (2201 E. 46th Street, 317-828-7068), which reopened for curbside carryout this weekend.

The make-and-take dinner for two by Brugge Brasserie (1011 E. Westfield Ave., 317-255-0978), which includes two pounds of PEI mussels in a broth of your choice, a side salad, and crusty baguette. A bottle of wine or housemade beer completes the meal for an additional cost.

Spent-grain crackers made with Sun King Wee Mac beer by 4 Birds Bakery, paired with homemade compound butter with pickled and roasted ramps.

Speaking of Sun King, the brewery’s popular Sunlight Cream Ale, which gets a citrus-y upgrade with the new Orange Vanilla flavor, the perfect post–lawn mowing brew. Four-, six-, and 12-packs, crowlers, and growlers can be ordered online or over the phone from any of Sun King’s four locations. Call when you arrive, and they’ll deliver the goods right to your trunk.
