A notable newcomer in the LA restaurant scene, Pijja Palace is an aesthetically-driven sports bar that delivers satisfying bar food and cocktails translated through Indian spices and flavors. With a calming coastal color palette, you won’t even mind as raucous LA sports fans cheer on their favorite teams playing on multiple TVs. What you will want to do is go with a group so you don’t miss out on an entire menu full of standouts, not limited to Dosa Onion Rings and Okra Fries; wings which can optionally be subbed for fried cauliflower or chicken tenders and are drenched in vibrant yellow, green, and red sauces; and Lamb Kebab and Aloo Tiki sliders. There are also innovative pasta dishes with aromatic Indian spices, like the Malai Rigatoni and Tandoori Spaghetti, plus Green Chutney and Saag pijjas, which put an Indian spin on Italy’s greatest export. Don’t forget to save room for soft serve desserts in Cookies and Cardamon and Malted Chai flavors, and don’t disregard the cocktail list, which generously features Indian spirits and flavors, plus Indian beers and natural wines.
