Badmaash opened earlier this year in downtown LA, on the border of Little Tokyo, Civic Center and the Historic Core. I think it’s one of the more unique concepts to open recently calling itself an ‘Indian gastropub.’ Most of the menu offerings are traditional Indian fare, but it’s mixed in with some intriguing Westernized, “pub” twists. The most unique of these is perhaps one of the restaurant’s most popular dishes – chicken tikka masala poutine. Seriously, when I heard about this I knew I had to try it.
Opposite the food on the gastropub concept, Badmaash has a pretty lengthy wine and beer list. However, the beer list is surprisingly pricey, with 12oz. craft beer bottles like Stone IPA starting at $8 (no beers on draft).
