Fort Wayne Faves???
Especially Amish, Mexican, Soul Food, Vietnamese and BBQ.
re: Barry Strugatz
Not sure if you are, or will be, in the Fort Wayne area (some 3 years after your post), but for the sake of posterity:
Yes. There is an Amish restaurant north of Fort Wayne called Das Nolt Family Dinner Haus (I've seen it phrased differently online, but there is a "Nolt" and a "Haus" in there somewhere). The address is actually Grabill, Indiana. I haven't visited in many years, but according to Urbanspoon, it looks like it's still open (though possibly only Friday and Saturday evenings).
As of my last visit (which may have been over 10 years ago, now), it was a buffet with communal bench seating. The food was good standard American fare. Lots of starches, which in my limited experience eating with Amish families, is typical of Amish meals. Mashed potatoes, buttered egg noodles, and really good white bread all stand out in my memory. Particularly that fresh bread, with homemade butter, fresh peanut butter, and delicious honey. Good stuff.
The other highlight was a seemingly impromptu a cappella performance by several (3 - 6 maybe) Amish women. They gathered in the middle of the dining room and sang in German. Really amazing sound. Unlike anything I've ever heard before or since. I have been there twice, and this only happened one of the two visits, so I'm not sure how frequently it occurs.
Again... 3 years after the fact. But for posterity:
I love Saigon on S. Calhoun for Vietnamese. The pho is excellent. I usually have a Vietnamese coffee, the pho tai, and either the egg roll, or spring roll (all of which are great). The egg rolls are the best I've had. Ever. Cash only.
I also liked Qi's on Dupont Rd. Very good pho there as well. Credit cards accepted!
