I loved going on the Indy food tour and sharing it with you guys last week! We also had some time on our hands during the day before the tour so we stopped for lunch at Chatham Tap in Fishers.
Sun King out of Indy.
I went for the Garlic Pork Tenderloin ($7.99) - it seems the closer you get to Iowa - the more rampant pork tenderloins are on menus! I chose onion rings as a side - it is an upcharge for fries or onion rings. Sandwiches come with homemade chips, coleslaw or cottage cheese free of charge.
The pork tenderloin was thick and definitely made in-house. The garlic wasn't overpowering and it was very juicy. Honestly - the sandwich was a bit more than I could handle just in sheer size. The onion rings were almost coated in cornbread. I didn't love them.
Why Should You Go? All in all - it was definitely a hit - it's cool to find a place that seems like it might be run of the mill and then to come out satisfied and knowing you've had something unique.
Next up, we headed to Conner Prairie Interactive History Park - I love these kinds of places and was happy to drag Larry along with me.
Lenape Indian Camp and met an Indian Chief (seriously - he is) that was throwing tomahawks. He offered to teach us how to throw and I jumped on it.
animal encounters - and this guy completely had the right idea. I knew he was my kinda sheep. There were lots of animals and I'm pretty sure that I pet every single one of them. It's what I do.
Then it was off to 1836 Prairietown - where televisions, refrigerators and rocket launches do not exist! They have a whole little town set up where you can learn a trade, visit shops and play games.
1863 Civil War Journey - where we met Civil War soldiers. Everyone is in character fully and has no idea what our cell phones or Nikes are. This gentleman was a big help and pointed us in the direction of the home on the presmises.
We paid for the lunch and park admission - but the food tour later was thanks to the Hamilton County Tourism. We had a great time - thanks again!
