One of my favorite things about Indiana is that the seasons change. Leaves turn bright shades of orange, red and yellow in the fall; white snow covers the ground in the winter; and the grass turns a vibrant shade of green in the spring. While I love the changing seasons, I do miss the fun outdoor concerts, farmers markets, park visits of spring, summer and fall. So, when it gets too cold to do those fun outdoor activities- I eat! Every week this winter I will highlight one of my favorite Hamilton County, Indiana restaurants. As a foodie (my definition of foodie is simply someone who loves to eat), I will happily talk about the small diners, the hole in the wall eateries, the fancy French bistros, the big restaurants and more. NOW, onto the good stuff - enjoy, and feel free to share your own favorite Hamilton County, Indiana dining spots!

Sahm's - This family-owned restaurant offers great food & service at an affordable price. With recipes that have been passed down through the generations, the menu has a wide variety of tasty homemade food - sure to please anyone's palette. I asked around the office for favorite dishes and came back with quite a few; the mouth-watering burger, the perfectly cooked pork tenderloin sandwich, the new buffalo bites. Also, this past summer we posted about the Hamilton County dishes that the 8 Great Towns staffers crave - and Sahm's made the list. Check out this great quote from that post: Our intern, Emma, craves a fried delight from Sahm's, Although they are not technically a dish, Sahm's carrot curls surpass any other crunchy, fried snack I have ever encountered. They are light, crispy, and are dusted with just the right amount of salt. Plus carrots are vegetables, so they are still good for you - Right?
