Indian in Silverlake
I'm new to the area and have been searching for an Indian restaurant in Silverlake? Are there any?
Electric Lotus in Los Feliz at the corner of Vermont & Franklin is a superb choice not far from Silver Lake. They favor olive oil to the more traditional ghee. The Bertha is especially enticing, as well as the saag dishes. Another nice convenience -- they're open until Midnight during the week; 1am on weekends.
I really enjoy Paru's on Sunset just west of Normandie. You get buzzed in through the gate and suddenly you're in this secret garden. The restaurant inside is a crimson explosion and the southern Indian vegetarian food is delicious and varied. I really like this place and unlike Electric Lotus which I find over-priced and uneven, Paru's is Ghee-tastic.
