Forgoing intricate tapestries, buffet tables, and the soft mood lighting many have come to associate with Indian restaurants, Badmaash serves up Indian cuisine with a whole new attitude that is at once approachable and bad-ass. Launched by Pawan Mahendro and his sons Nakul and Arjun, the LA-based Indian gastropub serves up traditional flavors with a bit of modern foodie innovation. Visitors can look forward to original signatures like a lamb burger with paprika mayo washed down with bottles of Thums Up — India’s answer to Coca-Cola.
Having grown up in Toronto, the Badmaash boys show some special love for their cross-cultural upbringing with their special Chicken Tikka Poutine, which combines crispy fries tossed in paprika masala and chicken tikka cooked in a clay tandoor oven. On the decor side, Badmaash keeps its interior simple and industrial, though vintage Bollywood posters and a pop-art Gandhi mural add just a touch of East Indian flair.
