Address: 906 Carrollton Ave., Indianapolis

What to get: The Original

Price: $9.95

Anna’s take: The Garage Indy opened in the downtown Indianapolis Bottleworks development Jan. 5, and it’s already very popular. Like a luxury cafeteria, The Garage offers houses multiple restaurants (not all are open yet), similar to the Fishers District Test Kitchen, but with more options. I tried Poke Guru, which also has a location at City Market in Indianapolis. Poke is a Hawaiian dish that features raw fish served over rice with vegetables and sauces, sort of like a sushi bowl. I tried four bowls, all priced at $9.95. I tried The Original, which is the most popular bowl. It features marinated tuna over sushi rice with edamame, avocado, seaweed, cucumber and a drizzle of spicy mayo and unagi, topped with pickled red onion. The Ginger Scallion features your choice of salmon or tuna, fresh ginger, green onion, seaweed, carrot, avocado, pickled cucumber and soy sauce. The Sichuan Salmon features salmon tossed in a Sichuan sauce, house-made chili oil, Sichuan peppercorns, edamame, pineapple, pickled daikon, avocado, crispy onion and nori strips. The Kalbi is truly unique with short rib in a Korean marinade, edamame, seaweed, avocado, pickled Asian pear, pickled mustard seeds and crispy onion.
