Tons of restaurants all over the country are doing really cool things and Milktooth in Indy is no exception. They’ve only been open for a few years and have received dozens of accolades including being named on the Bon Appetit Hot 10. So of course I made a breakfast stop during my trip to Indianapolis.
The space is very eclectic in that hipster-y way but I was into the vibe. It’s a former garage turned into a beautifully lit restaurant and everything on the menu sounds drool-worthy. The dishes are an intersection of sweet and savory and unlike your standard brunch fare.
When it came to ordering, I started with my preferred coffee beverage – a Latte with House Hazelnut-Cashew Milk. I’m not typically a dairy-free milk person, but this sounded delicious. And it was, the subtle nutty flavor went really well with the espresso.
Taking the advice from one of my favorite people to follow on Instagram, @buzz_food, I ordered the Sorghum Glazed Bacon. The bacon was thick cut, which I’m normally not a huge fan of, but it was sticky sweet and delicious. I only slightly missed the crispiness that I’m used to with bacon.
Taking my waiter’s advice, I ordered the Spanish Manchego & Grapefruit Dutch Baby Pancake. This was insanely delicious. I will be thinking about it for the next few months for sure. The dutch baby was so fluffy and had a layer of slightly melted manchego cheese. It was then topped with shaved brussel sprouts, shallots, hazelnuts, sherry vinaigrette, and of course grapefruit. The flavors worked together beautifully and I kept going back for bite after bite.
