Back on the west side with my friends Sacha and Scott, we decided to check out Guatelinda, another place that has been on my list forever (nothing makes me happier than checking things off my list). I’m forcing them to venture away from Spice Nation, at least every once in awhile.

Guatelinda is in the little strip mall on Lafayette Road where Saigon was originally if you are a west side frequenter. Side note, whenever I drive around over there, I am a hazard on the roads, looking everywhere for potential places to eat.

They bring you chips and salsa to start—can’t say there was anything really particularly interesting about these. I did like that they gave you a little carafe of salsa and your own little personal bowl, so you could double dip with impunity. But they were your basic chips (not warm or anything) and a very thin, slightly sweet, salsa. Of course I still ate some and even managed to spill some on my white sweater.

For lunch, I found myself perusing the last page of the menu where all the a la carte items are listed. They were all reasonably priced (everything I had was around $1-2 each) and if I ordered here I figured I could try several things and spend as much as I would on a meal (I don’t need the beans and rice).

My favorite thing was probably the sope—it is a little circle of corn-based pastry that is shaped like a mini piecrust and fried til it’s crisp outside. You can have it topped with any kind of meat –I went with the al pastor spicy pork (of course I did). The pork was topped with shredded lettuce, a very loose sour cream dressing and tomatoes and dry crumbly cheese (Cotija I am guessing) that’s almost like Parmesan. The crust had a nice crunch and a nice flavor and I liked the lettuce mix on top (and often I am not a fan of lettuce in my Mexican food) because the tanginess of the sour cream was good with the meat-which was in nice meaty chunks.

I also had a pupusa, which is a cornmeal type pancake that is stuffed with various fillings—in my case pork and cheese.  They serve this one with a side of nice acidic shredded cabbage that in my opinion was an absolute must with the pupusa. The pupusa alone was good but just kind of one-dimensional. With the bright “slaw” on top, it made it much more interesting.

The last thing I had was the empanada, which was a deep fried pastry that was stuffed with meat (in this case chicken) and cheese. I went with chicken for something different, and also because it was the first thing our server listed when she asked what I wanted in it. I was impressed with the large chunks of chicken inside the pastry, because they were nice and tender. There was A LOT of cheese, and again, while it was tasty, definitely benefited from some of the same shredded lettuce/sour cream/cheese garnish served on the side. And some of that lightly pickled cabbage from the pupusa didn’t hurt either. Heck, that stuff was good on everything, and I pretty much put it on everything.

The whole meal for me was $8 and some change and it was a ton of food. Even sharing bites with my lunch dates, I didn’t finish it all.  There is not a lot of English spoken here, but the menus are pretty well translated. The server was very nice and efficient. It was a good, economical, lunch place. 

I have several places on my list for the west side, but now that I've got locals over there to go with, what would be the top of your list in the Lafayette Square area? I would love to add to the options.

Castleton Grill - Revisit

In my family, if there’s an errand to run on the weekend, we usually end up planning a meal around it. The other day my son had saved his allowance and was desperate to go to Toys R Us to spend it, so we needed to be in Castleton. The age-old dilemma then comes about…where to eat in Castleton? There are so few options that aren’t chains and that we can agree on. So when he and hubby decided on Castleton Grill, I was fine with it because I had only been once and it was so long ago, and I knew they would have something on the menu to appease everyone.

I was surprised to find that they offer breakfast on the weekends, which is always a good thing to know about. They also offer Smoking Goose bacon, which is even better. It was the day of the time change when we went, so I was really torn between breakfast and lunch since my body clock hadn’t fully adjusted. We decided to get a little biscuit they offered on the breakfast menu to split and try, and then just order lunch.

The biscuit ($3) was called the “sec” because it was sausage, egg and cheese. Pretty straightforward—scrambled eggs, a sausage patty and cheese. You know, it was pretty good. Nothing fancy here, but the biscuit was light with a nice crisp exterior and the eggs were not overcooked. We just had a bite each and then my son devoured the rest. I think he will be getting that if we return for breakfast.

For my entrée, I had the club sandwich ($9). I’ll admit, I was completely lured in by the promise of the Smoking Goose bacon and avocado. Also, it was without ham, and I am not a huge deli ham fan anyway. It was a solid old-school club (ok, with avocado which isn’t so old school). I was disappointed in the amount of bacon on it (a couple of the wedges barely had any) but the ones I did eat (the ones with the most bacon) were pretty good. There was also mayo and shredded lettuce and turkey on it. The fries are total mediocre foodservice fries and I would pass on these. I tried to substitute a side salad (+$1.95), which they brought, but still brought the fries as well. The salad wasn’t bad. Lots of romaine hearts but I loved the super thin shaved red onions. Little things like that make me happy. And they have an old-fashioned blue cheese dressing that is super thick and chunky. Hubby loves it.

Hubby had the reuben ($9) and wasn’t as thrilled. He loves a reuben but is particular about the proportions. This was too much corned beef to not enough other stuff for him. My daughter had a kid’s waffle ($3.50) (i.e. half a waffle) and my son the kids scrambled eggs and bacon ($3.50). Everyone was satisfied but no one was overly excited about anything we ate (well, my son really did like that biscuit and it probably was the best thing on the table).  It is good to have a family style restaurant in Castleton that isn’t a big chain though, and I am glad to know they have breakfast. We will likely go back and give a full on breakfast a try at some point. It’s all pretty straightforward food and I think they could probably pull it off pretty well.

House of Cheung

This may be one of the closest restaurants to my house, but I haven’t been since I was in high school. Weird. Although one of the reasons is because of my son’s nut allergies, we rarely eat at Chinese places as a family (so many peanuts and cashews). My son was at a birthday party and my daughter was excited to go out without him, so we gave it a go.

The first thing you notice about this place is how friendly everyone was. Our server and the manager/owner I’m guessing both asked if it was our first time and were excited to have us. They explained that everything is made from scratch and seemed quite proud of their product. We were excited to try it.

I like that the menu is a little more paired down than many Chinese restaurants. It is still big, but not so big that it is overwhelming. They also had several dinner options based on the size of your party. We figured they must think these things are some of their better dishes, so we went with the “dinner for 3” option at $36. The only thing we changed is the soup from wonton to hot and sour. And they were more than happy to oblige the change.

As for the hot and sour soup, it was very good. One of the better ones I have had in Indy. It had the requisite hot AND sour and lots of good stuff in it. It was maybe a tad thicker than I would normally like (cornstarch thickness kind of thing) but the flavor was really good. Lots of black pepper. Also, I finally found some freshly fried (even warm) fried wontons. It seems like so often they are stale. These were great.

Our meal came with a fried egg roll and a crab Rangoon as well. The eggroll was huge, but not really my thing. It was one of those really large old school egg rolls filled mainly with just shredded cabbage. It was certainly freshly made though and was steaming hot. The crab Rangoon was also really hot and was good. It was super fresh, and not overstuffed with cream cheese which I like.

The meal for three came with three entrées and fried rice (but I ordered some steamed too). It came with Szechuan beef, Moo Goo Gai Pan, and General's chicken. The table favorite was probably the General's chicken. Typically, I am not a big fan of the deep fried chicken pieces in Chinese restaurants. Often there is so little meat to them and so much greasy fried parts. But this was very lightly fried and you could really tell they had used larger pieces of chicken. It was different from any other General's I have had. The sauce was a bit sweet, but had a little heat and some vinegar to it too.

The Moo Goo Gai Pan was good too. This is a very mild dish that I used to like as a kid. Interestingly, they always had it in Chinese places in Indy, but I never saw it on menus in San Francisco. So maybe it’s regional to the Midwest? (Also, other random factoid I just learned, it was the favorite dish of Laura Petrie on the Dick Van Dyke Show.) I liked that the chicken isn’t deep fried and that it was very tender. It’s in a light slightly thickened sauce that mainly tastes like chicken broth and had lots of bright green veggies in it—broccoli, snow peas and cabbage. I like cooked cabbage and that was my favorite veggie part of the dish. It was an easy one to get my sometimes picky daughter to eat (although the General ended up being her favorite). It was fresh and cooked just right, even if it is a very mild dish.

Lastly, we had Szechuan Beef. I was impressed that the beef wasn’t cooked to death—some pieces were still even a bit pink. It was pretty tender, although a couple were a tad fatty. It had a little spicier soy-based sauce and some veggies as well—green peppers, onions, carrots, and cabbage.  They certainly don’t skimp on the meat or the portions here. Even though we ordered way too much food (we took a ton home), it was fun to try it all. And I liked that the Moo Goo Gai pan offered so many veggies since the other ones were more meat-centered.

This place has a great welcoming staff and atmosphere--it is straightforward, 70s style Chinese food (it opened in 1979!) and it’s fresh and done well. And we all liked it quite a bit. I have a feeling the carry out menu is going to start going into our regular carry out rotation.

Tacos 46

I finally have someone who lives west to meet up on west side with me on a regular basis. I met my friend @zigged at Tacos 46 the other day for lunch. Apparently, this place has recently located into a new space from a very small place it was in before.  The new digs are pretty spacious, if not overly orange. You order at the front counter and they bring your food out to you. 

We kind of shared everything so we could get a taste of many things (all tacos), and I would say in general we ordered too much food (we ordered 6).  But I was really glad we tried a bunch of them. All the basic tacos are $2 each, with the exception of a couple of the “deluxe” ones we ordered, which were $2.50 each. Honestly, I could be finished after two of them, so it’s a pretty cheap place to eat lunch if you want it to be.

My favorite taco was probably the al pastor (which seems to usually be my favorite). The pork had nice crisp edges-the tacos are simply topped with cilantro and onions unless you ask otherwise. The pork had a great flavor and topped with all the little freebie accompaniments (more on that later), it was really good.

We also had some cheesy ones—the choriqueso, the asada con queso and the alambre con queso. These are done in flour tortillas and are slightly bigger than the others. They are tasty, but almost remind you more of a quesadilla than a taco because they are full of melty cheese. Of these, I liked the choriqueso the best (which is a good deal because it is still just $2)—it was simple and had bits of chorizo in it giving it some saltiness.  The asada con queso was similar but the beef wasn’t quite as flavorful. The alambre con queso had lots of stuff going on in it—besides the meat; there was cheese, peppers and onions.  

We also had a straight chicken one with a sprinkle of cheese added.  This one was just ok, as is often the case with chicken tacos. The chicken was just too dry. You needed a lot of the accompaniments to make this one work. (If you added a lot of salsa, etc., you could make it more moist and more palatable). The lengua taco was slightly less dry, but still a bit too dry for me. Again, once you doctored it up, it was better. Also, a couple of the pieces looked a bit TOO much like a piece of a tongue and made it a little freaky.

So my favorite part about this place for sure? All those accompaniments I have alluded too. They give you a plate with sliced radishes and juicy lime wedges, a bowl of lightly pickled white onions, a bowl of pico de gallo, a mild flavorful green sauce, and a spicier, heat building orange sauce. All of it was really good and I really loved doctoring them up with all this stuff. My favorite was the pickled onions and limes because you know me; I love that extra dash of acidity with food like this. Most places will give you the limes, but the onions were a nice extra touch. The pico was very fresh and flavorful as well and I really liked the green sauce—lots of cilantro flavor and not too much heat. The orange one was very good as well, and didn’t assault your mouth with heat, but it definitely builds over time. All of these things are what made this place special for me. The tacos aren’t bad, and some were good, but all these extras took them to the next level.

I also had a mango aqua fresca that was a little overly sweet, but I liked that they 4-5 different flavor options. Overall, it’s a cheap lunch option, and one that quite a few people were taking advantage of when we where there. The service is fast and efficient and the people are also efficient, although not the friendliest bunch (not unfriendly, just very business-like).  Would love to hear if any of you guys have been here.

Shoefly Public House

This is a place that I have been hearing a lot about. I was excited to try it, but as always, wanted to give it a couple of weeks before I ventured in. I met my friend @wibia there one day because he was wanted to try it as well, and then when another friend asked to go a week or so later, I went again. 

The menu is actually pretty appealing to me—lots of things that sound interesting—I had a hard time making up my mind. On my first visit, the server recommended the walleye fish and chips (lunch portion is $11), so that’s what I went with. Wibia had the Cuban pretzel flatbread ($9) and we shared an appetizer of the Boursin mac and cheese ($7).

I really liked the fish and chips. The walleye was very fresh and was done in a beer batter. It was a thick, very crisp, batter and you could distinctly taste the beer in it. It also came with plenty of housemade fries, which were tasty as well, although could have been maybe a tad crisper. My favorite part of my meal was the house tartar sauce they served along with the fish. It was great. It was a little thinner than the traditional mayo mixed with relish stuff and had way more flavor. It tasted like there were capers and some mustard in there. I dipped everything in it. There was also some slaw alongside that had a very sharp acidic flavor to it that made it a little much for me to eat just by itself. But I am kind of weird about slaw.

I had a piece of the Cuban flatbread as well. It was interesting. I think people will either really like this pretzel-based crust or hate it. Imagine if you took a soft pretzel and made it into a flatbread. It had the pretzel taste and was chewy like a soft pretzel is, but thin. It was topped with pork, capocollo, pickle, mozzarella, and whole grain mustard. The flavors complimented the pretzel taste, although I think I might have liked a little more pickle and mustard flavor, at least in the bites I tried. It seemed like mostly meat and cheese to me.

The mac and cheese was very good—a large portion as well. It had a nice flavor from the Boursin, which is like an herby cream cheese, and was topped with herbs and crunchy breadcrumbs. The noodles were curly and hollow and ridged on the outside and held lots of the cheesy sauce. We did add a little salt and pepper to it but other than that, it was probably one of the tastiest things. Definitely worth ordering if you are into mac and cheese.

On my second trip, I went with the BLT ($9), again because of the server’s recommendation. She said it was one of the best versions she had had and she told me they were using Smoking Goose bacon, so I was sold. It was a big sandwich; that was for sure. One of those ones I have trouble fitting in my mouth. The bacon was cooked perfectly (seriously, you know when they cook it just the right amount of crunchy and it kind of melts in your mouth?), and I liked the addition of avocado (of course I did). There was an aji sauce, which was a bright yellow pepper-based sauce, but to be quite honest, it didn’t have a ton of flavor. The bread (sourdough) was pretty thick. It was a decent sandwich, but I would probably get something different next time. We also shared a side of fries tossed with parmesan and garlic and with a hickory Dijon dipping sauce ($3). I loved the hickory Dijon and sort of wished it was on my BLT instead of the aji sauce. It was mustardy and tangy and just a little smoky all at the same time. The fries however suffered from being pretty soggy. My favorite thing on this visit was the housemade limeade ($3). I have been ordering things like this lately only to find them too syrupy sweet, but this one had a real tangy limey kick. Man, I would love to have this with some booze in it.

I like that there’s parking in back so you don’t have to try and find it on the street. The interior of the place is pretty simple. Only a few photographs of people decorate the walls (people who work there?). It’s kind of hard to tell from the décor (or lack thereof) what identity they are going for. Do they want to be a pub or a family restaurant? And a random thing, the banquette seating was a little odd because the booth part was taller than the chair so I felt very short sitting in the chair. Good to know if you need a place for a business lunch and want to feel like you’re the one with the power I guess. 

I do like the creativity that the menu exhibits, even if not everything is pulled off flawlessly. Little touches like the tartar sauce and the hickory Dijon (and the limeade) make the food stand out from the crowd a bit. I am looking forward to trying it again and trying some different things. I know a bunch of you guys have been—would love some comments about what you like to eat here.

The Loft at Traders Point Creamery - Revisit

It has been awhile since I had been to Traders Point, because frankly, my last meal was a little disappointing. My friend Suzanne had been more recently and really enjoyed her meal, so we decided to meet out there for lunch.  The menu has changed somewhat since the last time I was there and had several interesting menu items. It was just lunch, so we went with sandwiches, but we also started with a cheese plate.

They do a really nice job with the cheese plate ($16) and give you samples of just about all of of their cheeses—two of the soft fromage blancs—the spicy one and an herbed one. These are sort of similar to cream cheeses and I liked both of them.  They also gave the Boone County Bloomy, the Fleur de la Terre, and the Brick Street Tomme. They are all great cheeses and they do a very nice job with the accompaniments—some sliced grilled Amelia’s bread, some chunk honey, and fig chutney. A great thing to share—possibly with more people as we didn’t finish it all, but a nice way to sample nearly all the Traders Point cheeses.

For our lunches we got two sandwiches and shared them. We had the grilled cheese with bacon, avocado and spinach ($13) with a side of chips and the BLT with a side of slaw (around $10). Both sandwiches were good. The grilled cheese was back up to the one I had the first time I went and was delicious. Nice and cheesy and rich with the additional avocado and bacon. They are using Goose bacon I believe and it is really good. The bread was toasted perfectly this time (one of the big problems I had the last time) and was nice and crunchy. The pepper kettle chips on the side hit the spot if you are one of those people who want chips with your sandwich. The peppery taste was unique as well.

Honestly though, I think I liked the BLT even better. More of that really good bacon, ok, a not so ripe tomato and lettuce but with a wonderful basil mayo that was what made the sandwich. It was plentiful and had a great fresh basil flavor to it as well as the tanginess of the mayo. The bread was nicely toasted as well and I wouldn’t hesitate to get this one again. I have always been lured into trying to make sure I get something with cheese on it because it’s a cheese place, but they’re doing other great things as well and I need to just order what sounds good.  We got this one with a side of slaw, which I really didn’t care for that much because it had that slightly sweet pickled flavor to it. I am so weird about slaw. There are very few that I really like.

Overall, Traders Point is a good place to remember on the west side. Often people ask me for recommendations for a nice-ish place to go out that way. They have seemingly re-vamped the menu and I think have done a nice job. I would happily go back and try some more stuff (plus you can buy all their cheese downstairs in the farm store like I did and go home and make a giant helping of mac and cheese.)

Petite Chou- Revisit

I eat at the chous a lot for lunch, but I often forget about going to Petite Chou for dinner. The other night we were looking for something other than our usual haunts with the kids, and we all agreed to go.

I was excited to hear (on a Thursday) that they still had some of the duck fat fried chicken, but then when the server told me it would be 30 minutes to get it, I decided to pass on it. My kids are pretty good restaurant diners, but that might push it a bit.  So I decided to go with the crab cake appetizer ($8.95), and hubby got the Bastille Day burger that we shared ($15.95).

I generally do not order crab cakes at restaurants because I am very particular about them, but I really enjoy the crab cakes at Petite Chou. They are pretty thin and made up mainly of crab, with not a lot of filler. The outside is seared so the edges are crisp and they don’t have that overly bready texture like some do. My favorite part was the side salad they serve with it, which is made up of greens, thinly sliced apples and shaved fennel and is served with a very mustardy vinaigrette-type dressing. It is definitely more of an appetizer size (just one cake) but they serve it as an entrée as well (there are two and with an egg on top).

The Bastille burger is a thick patty topped with blue cheese, jowl bacon and pickled red onions. Although it may have been a little more cooked than I would have liked (and asked for), it was still very tender. You can tell they are using a good quality of beef. I loved the flavors of the toppings, but then again those are some of my favorite things. You get tanginess from the onions and the cheese and an extra layer of rich saltiness from the bacon. The burgers come with fries, which are really good—some of the better fries around for sure. They’re cooked fairly dark and served with a Dijon/mayo mix that I really enjoy.

We also all shared a side of the Gruyere mac and cheese with bacon ($6.95). This was also really tasty. I really like the earthy, salty flavor of Gruyere, and it was also still very smooth and creamy. The large chunks of bacon mixed in were great too, although honestly, I think it would be good either way. Hubby really liked the mac and cheese and ate the majority of it.

They have a nice kids’ menu as well, with some different things than the usual. My son had the cheese omelette with toast and my daughter the kid’s burger. They both seemed happy enough, although the patty on the kids’ burger was much smaller than the adult version, which is fine, but the bun was the same, which was weird (and too much bread).

My kids and I split a chocolate crepe (just a crepe with chocolate ganache). It was exactly what they wanted--and the chocolate was quite rich and tasty.

It’s one of the few French restaurants we have (as I have said a million times, what’s up with that?) and it’s a good option for dinner.

*******TAVERNA IS CLOSED***************

I have been anxious to try Taverna, because it is really pretty darn close to my house. I would love to have some more independent, but slightly nicer, places to go for dinner. We went with our friends who are neighbors and checked it out. The interior is nicely done and we were greeted warmly at the door. The front entry is a little strange, but the dining room is warm and decorated in dark shades. Several different servers approached us throughout the night, and several different people took different parts of our order, making it difficult to know who was really waiting on us. Everyone was nice, but there was certainly a bit of greenness with most of them—not knowing the menu items or bar lists, etc.

Our friend ordered a Bourbon and was impressed with the very generous pour that he received (although it wasn’t cheap at $13). His wife had a raspberry mojito and really enjoyed it as well. One of our servers told us about a few of her favorite menu items, one of which was the Taverna grilled wedge ($9) which sounded interesting, so hubby got one to start, and our friends split one as well. It is an interesting combo of things—grilled romaine hearts with heirloom tomatoes, bacon and avocado and served with a housemade roasted garlic/feta dressing. I thought it was a decent salad. I am torn about grilled salads. A little too much and it just becomes too wilty. This one had a fair amount of dressing, and the dressing sounded good but was a little bland. There was no real kick to it, it just needed to be zipped up.

I also got the tuna tartare ($18) starter because I always have a hard time passing it up. This one was interesting because it had things in it I have never had in a tuna tartare. Like strawberries. In theory, the strawberries and cucumbers in it could have been interesting if the strawberries were very ripe, but because they weren’t, it had a sort of flat taste to it. It definitely needed a squeeze of acid. The menu described it as having a spicy nuoc mam flavor, which would be a spicy fish sauce, but I didn’t get any spiciness or really much flavor other than the mild cilantro oil underneath and the crisp flavor of the cukes. It was served with some crispy wontons. The whole dish just needed more pizazz.

My favorite part about the first course were the pretzel croissants that came along with everything. They were delicious. Soft, warm, flaky, and buttery like a croissant but with a tad of a firmer pretzel flavor exterior. We liked these so much we asked for extras. That was a unique and tasty touch.

I opted for an appetizer as my main dish because I was intrigued by the lobster rolls. You don’t see them on menus that often around here and I do like a good one. The app came with three mini ones (good for sharing). The bread was spot on—toasted and buttered and split in the middle. The lobster was butter poached and I liked that it was not tough from being overcooked. There were fine bits of celery and chives in there as well. Not much else going on in there besides the mayo. Purists would probably say this was pretty traditional, although I tend to like a little more seasoning in mine. This was a good, solid lobster roll though. I could see getting this again, especially to split between 3 people as an app.

Hubby had the Italian gnocchi ($18) with Italian sausage, spinach and garlic in a red sauce. The sauce had a nice fresh tomato flavor which I enjoyed. The dish overall was pretty hearty and had some nice flavor combos going on. I think he enjoyed it, although wasn’t raving about it. I also had a bite of my friend’s Taverna pesto pasta ($16). I liked the thick ribbons of pasta. It had a strong pesto flavor (even stronger than the classic pesto because it also had arugula in it). I would have had a hard time eating an entire portion of it because it is so strong, and she didn’t finish it.

So overall, while I think it is too pricey (they have entrées that are over $30), especially for Broad Ripple, I would go back to try the food again. It wasn’t amazing, but it was interesting enough to make me want to try it again. The biggest problem here is with the service. It started out friendly but weird (giving us all giant drinks menu but no regular menus, having a lot of random people showing up at random times) and fell off the rails as the night wore on (my last glass of wine came about 4 minutes before the check did although I had ordered it much earlier). Hubby thinks they are experimenting with hiring people who have never served before or something. I think they just may need to train a little more and work out the kinks. I would love to know what you guys think if you have been there.

1/2 Priced Bottles of Wine - 2013

Upon request, I have updated my list of restaurants in Indy with half priced bottles of wine on certain nights (looks like Wednesday is the night for the most options). I haven’t verified every one; so make sure you double check before you go if that’s what you’re looking for. Please note that some restaurants have limitations as to what wines are half price (often the very expensive wines are not included for example). And of course, by all means, if I forgot one, or am incorrect about one, please let me know so I can update the list.
