Good Mediterranean at Al Basha

If you want good Middle Eastern food, Al Basha is a pretty good place. It’s kind of hard to find though. It’s back behind the water store on Allisonville Road south of 116th street. If you go past the airfield you’ve gone too far. I think you’ll really like it. And their prices are pretty good too! Read More at The Whole Hog

Good Mediterranean Lunch at Mediterrano Cafe

The Mediteranno Cafe is a great diversion from the ubiquitous hamburgers, burritos, and other fast food fair that a 30 minute workday lunch usually offers. The food is fresh, if a bit bland, and there are some really great standouts on the buffet. Read More at The Whole Hog

Taste of Europe: An Eastern European Deli

Taste of Europe is a little Eastern European Deli in an industrial area on the northwest side of Indianapolis that serves hot food in a small dining room off to the side of the store. It is a great place to go if you want a good lunch or dinner with no frills. The food is fresh, satisfying and above all delicious. Just don’t go there expecting to eat and leave because it’s guaranteed you’ll find something else in the store to add to your bill! Read More at The Whole Hog

King Ribs: An Indianapolis Barbecue Joint

For dessert, if you like the kind of sweet that will rot the teeth out of your mouth as you chew, go ahead and have a piece of Chess Pie. Otherwise opt for the fantastic Sweet Potato Pie.

Wonderful Cuban Cuisine at Havana Cafe

Rating:  Cuisine: Cuban Dress: Casual Average Price of an Entrée: $7.00 Children Friendly? Yes It seems Jeff and I are on a streak. We haven’t been to a restaurant that deserves less than Three Piggies in over a month! This week we are back on the west side of Indy reviewing one of the very few Caribbean restaurants in Indianapolis, the Havana Cafe. I find it amusing this little cafe is located just around the corner from the Saigon Restaurant we reviewed last week. Is it me or does the west side have the widest variety of ethnic restaurants in Indy? … Read More at The Whole Hog

Outstanding Mediterranean Food at Istanbul Cafe

At the Istanbul Café, you cannot go wrong. The food is as fresh as possible, the flavors are spot on. This is the type of place you might take a date you want to impress; you’re significant other for a romantic dinner or anniversary, or just to have a special night out. But don’t let that keep you from going there any time you feel like having a great Turkish meal. And you can have a gourmet meal that won’t break the bank! In summary: The authentic food and flavors of the Istanbul Café took me back to my youthful years in Europe. That combined with the friendly service, cleanliness, and uplifting atmosphere earns the Istanbul Café my highest rating. The food literally gave me goose bumps! Read More at The Whole Hog
