Relishing Innovative Indian Cuisine in Beverly Hills, California
Tanzore, one of Beverly Hills’ best kept secrets, is a favorite for celebrities like Randy Jackson. Although, decoratively, it’s a bit Bollywood—brightly colored spiced walls of magenta, sherbet orange, and hot pink—the food raises it above the rank and file, re-interpreting classic cuisine by adding fresh, local ingredients. Known for vegan delights like tofu saatey (tangy Asian-style tofu sticks with garlic flavored sweet-chili sauce and tandoori florets), their zingy Bombay treats are years away from the usual pungent potpourri. The fish dishes have a zestier quality than most, like the pan-seared Maine lobster, with a mouthwatering moilee sauce, oven-roasted baby squash, and basmati rice and gulab jamun. Hold out for desserts like the homemade Indian spiced apple galette. It’s like Krishna dancing on your palate.
