216 S. Indiana Ave.
Chow Bar’s prime location on Indiana makes it a popular spot of students and faculty. The lunch buffet isn’t huge, but it offers more than the standard sweet and sour chicken and fried rice. Seafood is plentiful, especially at the Sunday buffet. Or order off the menu; spicy Szechuan dishes arrive slicked with fiery chili oil. Vegetable-based dishes shine, in particular tender eggplant and snappy green beans coated in addictive garlic sauce. Bubble tea is a big draw, available in a wide variety of flavors from green tea to taro root to passion fruit. The menu focuses on Taiwanese specialties but also features Japanese and Indonesian style entrées. Prices: Appetizers $2-6, lunch $5-8, house specialties $9-15 Hours: Mon-Fri 11 am-10 pm Sat noon-10 pm Sun noon-9 pm Bar: No Credit Cards: Visa, MC, Campus Access Outdoor Seating: No

Nadia’s Bistro is a dual menu restaurant—half western eclectic and half Indonesian—which means diners can choose classic entrées like braised lamb shanks, chicken picatta, and eggplant parmesan, or experiment with Gado Gado (vegetables in a peanut sauce), Rendang (dry beef curry), and Indonesian fried rice. Nadia’s is located in the old Limestone Grille building, and the beautiful limestone sculpture is still there!
