This past Friday I had another girls’ day with Mom in Indy, which you know means some good food was involved 😉 I was thrilled for the chance to take her to Milktooth, one of Indy’s most iconic spots. I knew she would love it! It was the perfect midday break to hunker down and nourish ourselves amid spa appointments and lots of girl talk. #spoiled. I haven’t taken her there before now because it is only open 7am-3pm and there is always a wait on weekends so…it worked out perfectly to take advantage of our random weekday outing!
Milktooth is probably Indy’s most famous restaurant. It has received awards and recognition from Conde Nast, Bon Appetit, the James Beard Foundation, Food & Wine magazine, and more. I went to Milktooth about a year ago for a work lunch and have been dying to go back ever since.
I was excited to get to try some of the dishes off the menu since our work lunch was a chef’s table instead. Their menu changes all the time but everything on there is guaranteed to be delicious! I told Mom you just have to trust whatever combinations they put together will be genius, even if you don’t know what all the ingredients are 🙂
Of course choosing what to get is the hardest part. We ended up getting…
Sour cream biscuit pimento cheese spread, spiced buckwheat honey
Sourdough carrot cake waffle shredded carrot, pineapple cream, spiced maple, walnuts
Roasted broccoli & aged cheddar dutch baby beer mustard, pickled fennel, hazelnuts, mustard greens
I’d heard great things about their dutch baby pancakes so I was glad I got to try one for the first time! It totally hit the spot and I loved the fennel and beer mustard on top in particular. The sour cream biscuit was also perfectly flaky. And the pineapple cream combined with the carrot cake waffles was out of this world! A well done waffle is hard to beat. Actually, I’d say this was a 3-way tie for best dish. It’s too tough to choose a favorite! #awesomeproblemtohave
Overall, an A+ meal, as expected 🙂
Milktooth follows in a string of delicious meals I’ve had lately. Some other food highlights from the past week include…
A homemade meal by Chef Nathan – tilapia, crab cake, sautéed zucchini & onions & squash, and some bacon mac ‘n cheese courtesy of my mama ❤
Spinach salad with strawberries, candied walnuts, chicken, onion, gorgonzola crumbles, and balsamic vinaigrette at Cafe Patachou for a work lunch.
My FAVORITE fish tacos of all time from George’s Neighborhood Bar & Grill while watching the IU game. I ❤ local food (and it was even tastier than usual because IU won!)
