eating indie in indy

If they’re not Deeps;then they are….Shallos.

That was pretty lame I know;but the place,Shallos,in Greenwood is anything but.They stock 500 bottled beers and 36 on draft.They were no longer serving the IPA I wanted to try so the Bartender offered me several suggestions and even gave me a few samples.I ended up drinking 3 beers,in ascending ABV;so by the time I finished I was quite happy,as well as hoppy.But;being the responsible drinker that I am,I ate-and quite well I must say.I ordered their burrito.I knew I wouldn’t get an “authentic” burro,but that’s not what I wanted.I wanted a midwestern version;and I wasn’t dissappointed.I received a big burrito stuffed with well seasoned meat,smothered with a good enchilada sauce,garnished with crisp lettuce and diced tomato.It was a really good-looking plate.I’d planned on taking a picture of it but I forgot until I was half way finished-oops.But I did discover that the slightly spicy and sweet tastes of the southwest marry quite well with the bitter hoppiness of an IPA.As for Patrick he had an IPA too and opted to try a battered cod sandwich.Now this guy loves cod I think we’ve covered that before,he’s probably eaten deep-fried fish everywhere that it is offered in Indy.And Paddy declared that this hunk of battered and deep-fried cod was the best he had ever tried.So there you have it.Unless you live in Elkhart try Greenwood’s Shallos for an honest lunch and a good beer,or 2.Shallo's Restaurant & Brewhouse on Urbanspoon
