I went to Wei Raman this week and it was pretty tasty. $13 for a good bowl or real ramen, udon noodles were delicious. There is also a "hole in the wall" Thai place on the south side of Market next to the donut shop. Great curry
And if you are up for the hike try the Shake Shack.
Sorry that I cannot tell you about Condado Tacos. That's my secret place
The Thai place is Thai Paradise, which you can find here: https://www.thaiparadiseindianapolis.com/rs/index_home.action?pageType=D
The donut store next door is Jack's Donuts, and is very much worth a visit!
This is hardly fine dining news, but: The downtown Steak n Shake not far from the convention center just underwent a million dollar renovation:
Summary: Now more inside tables, no longer just some limited diner-type counter seats nor mostly just a carry-out restaurant. But, unlike other Steak-n-Shakes it won't have waitstaff. It's still just counter-service. They'll have ordering kiosks. And because they're larger they'll have more staff. Basically, it sounds like they've gotten bigger but potentially faster.
do we know of any places that will do the gencon pint glasses or have special menus for the con?
Is T-Swirl still downtown?
Wow, here's something different: On Saturday the 6th from 2 to 7pm, there will be a "Chicken and Beer Fest" on Monument Circle:
The site lists a bunch of local and local-ish vendors for both food and beer.
I just tripped over this. Maybe it's interesting enough to try? I don't know. Between that and the Georgia Street food trucks, there's going to be a tsunami of outdoor food options that day.
"How much is additional chicken and beer?
Additional chicken and beer sample tickets will be available for purchase for $2 per ticket."
When the $35 entrance fee is included, suddenly none of it is a good price point.
Damn. It looked interesting. But not $35 interesting.
They should make the chicken and beer separate tickets. Some of us don't like beer but would do the chicken.
Amen to that. Someone else can have all my beer. My ex- and I were a great team at events like that, where I would leave stuffed silly and she would be stumbling drunk
Just as an FYI ... Someone posted on Facebook that the a/c is not working at Goodwood. They don't think it will be fixed in time for Gen Con.
R.I.P. Goodwood already, then, ugh. I was just about to check it out, too.
Just throwing it out there that I decided to give myself a Gen-Con memory and headed to Goodwood after that last post. If their air conditioning was out, I certainly could not tell. Had a fine time instead of my planned intentionally miserable experience, haha
