Three Latest and Best

Sakura, Still Going after All These Years: Had a fantastic meal at Sakura recently discovering much of their non-sushi menu. While I didn't try my favorite donbury, I did enjoy the udon with perfectly firm -- not soggy -- noodles, mushrooms, green onion, and crispy tempura on top. They are celebrating their 20th Anniversary and advertising a special gift for customers who come in next week!

Peterson's: Yes, I love this place. Goat cheese bruschetta. Watermelon chipotle "soup" amuse boche. Mushroom of the day (in this case, portobello topped with artichoke hearts and baked). Beef short ribs falling off the bone. Blue cheese au gratin potatoes. Little chocolates that come with the bill. That is all.

Nicole's Ice Cream: Nicole Anderson of H2O Sushi is selling her fantastic ice creams, sorbets, and baked treats (which happen to be gluten free) at the Broad Ripple Farmer's Market. Look for their signature oatmeal cookies (huge! $2) and ice cream in her amazing flavors (pints and quarts, $4.50/pint) through the end of October. Hopefully they have plans to sustain us through the winter. Today, they had hibiscus and pistachio ice cream and a plum sake sorbet that sounded so good! I settled on a pint of cucumber tarragon ice cream.

Hibiscus and Pistachio together or seperate. I love the cookies too. We order them by the dozen as gifts at X-Mas and Nicole ships them for us via Fed-Ex.

Hibiscus and pistachio were two different flavors. I wanted the hibiscus but I don't think they had it in pints.
