I got a haircut the other day. Which is always exciting. But before the haircut, I had been driving across town to practice my psychology assessments on various children which meant that I barely made it to my appointment on time. And my appointment was at an awkward time, like 1:30pm, and I hadn’t eaten lunch yet. And while I was sitting in the swivel chair for what seemed like f o r e v e r, my stylish asked if I had tried any new restaurants lately and of course, the answer was “yes!”. And then she shared that one of her new favorites was Mimi Blue Meatballs on Mass Ave. She started to describe it and talk about this amazing dish that involved spices and fun flavors and my stomach was rumbling and I couldn’t take it anymore. So, I took myself out to lunch.
Is there anything better than a spontaneous lunch with a new haircut??
Mimi’s isn’t exactly new to the Indy food scene, but I hadn’t made a stop yet. I wasn’t sure how I felt about a meal of solely meatballs. I thought my options would be a bit limited. I thought wrong.
But let’s start with the atmosphere. SO CUTE! Leather booths, old-school swing music, a fancy bar, and iced tea served in tall glasses. Loved it. The menus are coated in plastic and you mark your order with a marker right on the menu. Fun, right?
Since it was my first visit, I went with the “4 Baller”, which was my choice of four balls (options = classic, beef, turkey, vege, and “special of the month”) and four sauces (options = marinara, garlic cream, spicy bolognese, mushroom gravy, and spicy cilantro). They also have sandwich and slider meatball options. And side dishes! Yummy ones! Like “dirty” mashed potatoes and mac & queso. I had such a hard time deciding which one to try.
I loved everything. I tried the spicy cilantro sauce with the vege ball and the garlic cream sauce with the beef and so on and so forth. Combined with a sunny day and the wonderful iced tea, I could have stayed all afternoon. Yes, you have to be in a meatball mood, but with all their options, it’s kind of hard to not be in a meatball mood.
I can’t wait to take Husband! And I must try the dessert menu! Anyone else visited Mimi Blue?
