Eduardo's
The signs say "Charlie Biggs", but there is an "Eduardo's" sign in plain text letters on the front door.This is on the north side of Raymond, between Keystone and Churchman. Look for the Burger King, and it's in between Burger King and Keystone Ave.It pretty much looks like an inner-city fried chicken joint, but it is very clean, including the unisex bathroom. The staples or main offerings are fried chicken and fried fish, but... the big "secret" is their Filipino cuisine. You won't know it's Filipino until you go in and read the menu.One time I had a fried-chicken (American style) combo dinner, with deep fried potato wedges and a cole-slaw side, and it was excellent for a fried-chicken place; crisp on the outside, and tender and juicy, cooked-just-right, on the inside.Another time I had a sample platter of the "menudo" (which is not at all like Mexican or Hispanic menudo, and some "adobo", served over white rice. EXCELLENT! Both of those are pork dishes, I was told. I then had some "Lumpia" small Filipino egg rolls, stuffed with pork. That, and the barbecued pork-on-a-stick are about all the Filipino food they serve during the week.The lady said they have more Filipino cuisine on the weekends.Eduardo's is the main caterer for the Filipino Association (Barangay club) booth at the International Festival. So if you like their food there, you ought to like it at Eduardo's on the weekends.One time I was there they were serving more Filipino cuisine than the adobo/menudo, but it was a special order for a group of Filipinos celebrating someone's birthday. So apparently if you have a group of 7 or more, and arrange with them in advance, they can cater it for dine-in or take out. Otherwise, wait for the weekend. Our group sat next to the birthday group, and we were constantly stealing glances, envying their food.The dining area gets chilly when the exhaust fans are running in the kitchen, and it pulls in the cold air. So dress warmly if you eat in during cold weather.The dining area consists of four tables-for-4, and a counter which seats 3 people. Both times there was a steady stream of take-out customers for the chicken. Though there was one caucasian gentleman who also asked for the Filipino cuisine for take-out.I think this family is doing it right: Their bread-and-butter business is what the working-class neighborhood wants, fried chicken and fish, which pays the bills. But what they love, and enjoy sharing is the Filipino cuisine. (The party of seven celebrating someone's birthday were professional folks who obviously had connections to the owners.) But there is probably not enough demand for a 100% Filipino restaurant to stay in business.Last I checked, they closed at 7pm on weekdays in the winter, so call to check if you want to go later.As far as I know, this is the only Filipino restaurant in the greater Indianapolis metro area.

Himalaya Kabob Korner
This is on the North side of 82nd Street, in front of the Castleton Square mall. It's on the back (North) side of a little out-lot, so you can't see it from 82nd street. You can see "Casual Male" from the street, and Kabob Korner is directly behind it, on the other side of that building.Look for the National City Bank, and turn North there, as if you're going into the mall. Then go right (East), and it's just past Long John Silver's.They close from 2:00pm to 5:00pm, so remember that when you visit.You walk up to the counter to place your order and pay. They bring your food out to your table on a tray and plastic plates. You have to get your own plastic utensils, napkins, and water from the counter.Menu is limited, and posted on a board behind the counter. Kabobs come in sirloin beef, lamb, ground beef, and chicken, and then there are three other entrees. Entrees come with side of long grain rice (basmati I think) and small dinner salad. I really liked the dressing on the salad.Drinks include ice water (self serve), and bottled water/soda/tea, and hot coffee.Prices are good and food quality is worth going out of your way for. It's kind of set up on a fast-food arrangement, so the overall "dining experience" isn't impressive, but the food does impress.The owner works as the cashier, cook, and waiter, and is very personable.Dining area and men's room were very clean.

Therapy Hair
My family has been using tHairapy Salon (and before that Absolute Style) for over 7 years and wouldn't think of going anywhere else. They have a variety of stylists, and we've used several over the years all with great results. The stylists listen to our concerns, make recommendations, and execute their services with professionalism, even taking extra time days later to make it right if needed. When my daughter dyed her own hair and was ready to switch back, Trisha spent hours working to help restore her color. My husband has very difficult, curly hair, and this is the only salon he's been excited to return to. For me, I love the recommendations to new styles and always receive compliments and inquiries. The salon is an active member of the community, supporting the local schools and festivals. Come check them out at the Irvington Halloween Festival.

Pinky Eyebrows
Great place, a little sparse on interior decoration, but it looks like they are just getting on their feet. Very clean place. I spoke with the one employee (manager? owner? her son was the only other person there) and she knew her stuff. She has been doing threading for five years. She recommended castor oil for thin outer part of my eyebrows. During the appointment she was very careful while threading, but quick. She trimmed the length of the hairs, shaped and cleaned up around my eyebrows then had me check them.She needed a little guidance on what shaping I wanted, but I got the impression that she wouldn't thread extra hair unless I was specific about shaping and such.I was in and out in about 10 min. Very cheap for good quality. She charged me $7 and I gave her $10.

Angel SPA
I was trying to find a permanent nail salon...so I tried this one. Yes, this shop is clean, very nice staff, and friendly BUT my nails (acrylic overlays on my natural nails) were put on so thick and the polish was so uneven and darker in some areas then others, that I left that salon vowing never to go back. I asked the nail technician why the polish was so uneven and streaking and her response was: the way I hold my hand in the dryer...fast forward one week....found a fantastic nail salon, had them fix my thick nails and my polish is on even, no streaks, no darker areas. It looks perfect and I'm a happy camper. I will never go back to Angel Nail salon. I do not recommend this salon for acrylics.

Details Express Salon
Came into the shop to get hair shampooed,and stylist was a bad listener. Told her what cut I wanted and what style I wanted she refused to listen and jacked my hair completely up,it was UGLY!,in result after 30 minutes of her fluffing my sides out like Florence Jean off Mels Diner I gave up . This is an upscale salon in which wash and sets are going for anywhere 65 dollars and above so listen and get my hair right! If I wanted a messed up hair style I would've went to Bookiesha in the hood and paid 35 dollars,very disappointment and probably won't go back for a long while,when you pay good money for a hair style you expect good service...Learn how to give good service#dumdum

Consigned By Design
This business (both locations) is amazing--both for consigning and for buying! I've never seen such beautiful and unique stuff on consignment. It's true that consignment doesn't always mean used. Some of the inventory is brand new, and it's all displayed in such a fun and idea-provoking way. They move things around frequently to be sure to showcase items and to give shoppers ideas on how to layer and group decor. I've made a lot of money consigning and have spent most of it buying here! There are some other nice fine furnishing consignment shops, but Consigned by Design is my only choice for consignment.

Sds Hair Studio
I loved everything about this place. The stylist was actually the owner. Did not ever mention it. I stopped in to have my hair and my 2 girls hair done. Nique got started right away. She actually took the time with each of us and made sure she met our needs. I was worried about my hair since it is not very healthy because of my health conditions, and she provided me with great tips and advise to make sure I look the best!
