The Mystic Kitchen & Tasting Room 306 N Center St, Bloomington Wine Bar • $$
306 N Center St, Bloomington

“So I am originally from Bloomington but moved to Chicago in 2018. This was my boyfriend’s first time visiting Bloomington this weekend and what a great way to start our trip! I used to work at this location years ago when it was Satio and I was pleasantly surprised to see that this new experience had taken its place. We loved the food and the drinks and they also were accommodating with us having our toddler. Everyone was friendly and it was just all around amazing. Highly recommend.PS: Perfect for an intimate date night.”

Annie's Eats Carry-Out And Catering 606 N Clinton St, Bloomington Barbecue • $$
606 N Clinton St, Bloomington

“Great food and fantastic service. Chatted at the pitmasters when first came in and as we left after eating at a picnic table outside. Owner was there taking care of lunch for his employees with food from somewhere else. Nice touch and was a super nice and BBQ chatty owner. :)The Brisket was very well smoked if a bit salty but I am fine with that. I thought it was brined first but was assured it was not. The chicken, pulled pork and ribs were all great as well with good smoke. The spicy sausage was really good. Too much for my wife but not insane to me but a very nice spice bite.We got the green beans, baked beans and coleslaw as sides. The green beans were OK, nothing special to me. The baked beans were interesting. At first you get a "oh, this is a savory bean" and then the sweet comes in and it is an interesting play that finishes with a bit of heat on the back end but nothing crazy at all. With the slaw, if you like KFC's, you will like the flavor. This is a MUCH finer shred but the flavor is very similar.Overall, great BBQ joint. Seating is just a couple picnic tables outside but that was enough for us even on a cool day. We live in Peoria but my wife will be coming to Bloomington monthly for quilting fabric and I can see this being the lunch stop quite often. :)Parking: Relatively small lot - maybe 15 spots - but since it is primarily takeout this shouldn't be an issue as the turnover is pretty good. We were there late lunchtime (around 3pm) and there were 6-7 spots.”

“The drink in the terracotta pot is a Cantaritos. I don't see it listed on the menu. It's refreshing and not overly sweet. The one in the background is a small frozen mango margarita. The Arroz Con Pollo (grilled chicken, peppers, and onions) on a bed of rice topped with cheese is always our go-to dish.”

“Love the food and the people working here. I think it's the only thai food in town. Take out only, place orders ahead of time and wait the full estimate before going in. Google maps sometimes stops the directions short and on the wrong side of the road, just drive slow and keep an eye out for the big thai house sign.”

“My husband and I tried Indian food for the very first time here, and we were very happy with the experience. I got buttered chicken fries and garlic naan, and my husband got the chicken tikka masala. The flavors were great. They do let you choose the level of spice you like which is nice since I don't have a high spice tolerance. It was a bit expensive, but the food was fresh, and the portion sizes are pretty big. Overall, we were very happy with our meal.”
