Banh mi — and more — in Indy

Jun 21st, 2013 | by Eat Drink Indy | News, Restaurants

Just wanted to update this — with new chef/co-owner Carlos Salazar on board, Rook will launch a new dinner menu Sept. 10.

Dumplings, ramen, Vietnamese pancakes, pig face hash — I’m looking forward to this!

From June:
Ed Rudisell’s “banh mi joint,” Rook, opened a couple weeks ago at 719 Virginia Ave., with a menu of Asian-inspired sandwiches — a great addition to the city’s food scene.

The namesake Rook sandwich includes chicken liver pâté and slices of pork roll along with the classic toppings of pickled vegetables. Other sandwiches play up various Asian flavors: Chinese barbecue, Thai peanut curry, Indian-spiced tofu.

All the sandwiches are $8; shrimp chips and pork rinds are $2.50.

Check this place out. Take a friend, get a couple sandwiches (or you could even split one) and an order of pork rinds — great stuff.
