Paleoista Approved Indian In Los Angeles

If you consider yourself a foodie and are allowing that to be the reason you’re not interested in giving Paleo a try, you can rest assured that Paleo can work with a broad range of regional cuisine, from Indian to Italian, Chinese to Parisian and Mexican to South African.  (No exaggeration- these are a mere six types of Paleo-izable food preparation and presentation that allow us to experience all the tastes, textures, proteins and veggies from worldwide dining styles, simply by removing the non Paleo components while keeping the flavor profiles.)

I’ve decided it’s imperative for me to start posting about the places I dine at, from a hole-in-the-wall in New York, to a three star Michelin in Seattle, to serve as a reference for my readers!

Today, after an afternoon of running errands, I decided to order some take away.

Pradeep’s  on Montana in Santa Monica is a place I’ve frequented for a while and it’s worth talking about.

A little background from their site:

“Serving Indian food in Santa Monica on upscale Montana ave for 18 years. Pradeeps is Healthy option in Indian food without sacrificing flavor in Los Angeles. All selections are comprised of flavors from India, vegetation of sunny California and tastes of both worlds. Our focus is on high quality, low fat, low cholesterol, and high fiber value. We do not use butter or cream in any preparation. All preparations are created by Chef Pradeep who has formerly worked in India and Europe and is also the former Chef of Century Plaza Hotel & Towers in Century City.”

Many of their menu items are gluten free, and several dishes come with veggies in lieu of the typical basmati rice.

The service is fast, the staff is friendly and it’s absolutely a place worth checking out.
