At the table with Anna: La Chinita Poblana


Where to go: La Chinita Poblana

Address: 906 Carrollton Ave., Indianapolis

What to get: Peanut noodle salad

Price: $6

Anna’s take: La Chinita Poblana is a Mexican-Asian fusion taqueria within The Garage food hall in the Bottleworks development in downtown Indianapolis. Owner George Munoz previously operated the restaurant in Broad Ripple, but that location has closed. Munoz also owns Festiva on 16th Street. La Chinita Poblana is an incredible restaurant, and I look forward to returning. I tried two of tacos, my favorite of which was the tilapia taco ($4). It has yellow curry and blackened tilapia, chipotle mayo, napa cabbage slaw and a ginger dressing. I tried a side of Mexican-style street corn ($3.50 or $6 depending on size), and let me tell you, you need to order the largest size possible. It has Chipotle Morita mayo, cotija cheese and crushed Takis corn chips, and it is such an incredible little dish that I can’t wait to try it again. My favorite dish was the peanut noodle salad ($6). It is made with cold noodles, julienned cucumber, bean sprouts, an herb mix and ground peanuts with a peanut sauce for a most delicious, refreshing Asian dish. Add protein for $3.50.

If you can’t choose between Asian or Mexican, visit La Chinita Poblana so you can have the best of both worlds.
