        Sorry been out of town for a bit, i was looking for along the lines of Indian, Thai, or even Singaporean

      2. Curry House in Little Tokyo

        1. Hurry Curry on Venice, great specials. I take Lincoln blvd (coming from LAX area) and make a right on Venice. It's just a few blocks from the high school. Great vegetarian selection, order the garlic naan, and use the mint and red sauce. I always get the spinach and potatos, lentils, and whatever else they have.

            Is that Hurry Curry related to the one on Sawtelle? If so, I second. It may not be the best, but reminds me the most of the curry I ate as a kid. The raisins are key.

            1. re: a_and_w

              No relation. Sawtelle is Japanese curry / food and Venice Blvd. is Indian food / curry.

            2. re: bellabella05

              must disagree with this recommendation.
              imho hurry curry on venice serves flavorless, americanized versions of indian dishes in which the expensive spices are omitted and the cooking process is abbreviated.
              on the other hand, their lunch specials used to be the cheapest version of indian food that one could buy on the westside. . .

            3. The Mock Duck Curry at Bulan Thai is AMAZING!
              Basil, Bell Peppers, Pineapples and Something that tastes just like duck! its really tasty.
              You'll come back for seconds.
              I promise you wont regret a visit to Bulan.
              I like the one in Silverlake the best, but the one on Melrose does just fine as well.
              Also the most amazing charcoal grilled pad thai. Its ALL SOOO GOOD.

                      I have food allergies so what exactly is veggie meat and seafood made from?

                        Good question, Hershey. I was only supplying the website / link. Don't know what they use to make the ersatz food.
