One of my husband’s and my addictions, as I’ve mentioned before, is Indian food paired with Riesling. Last night we placed our weekly delivery order to Makkah Halal Tandoori on Vermont (213 – 383 – 9976). It is without doubt the best Indian food I’ve had in LA. The Sag Paneer is so fresh, simmered with onions and tomatoes, which I love over their saffron flavored rice. Last night we were extra naughty and ordered the naan stuffed with housemade cheese. A cheap and cheerful Helfrich Riesling from Alsace ($12) with peachy floral notes balanced the richness and heat beautifully.
Update 9/20/09: Makkah Halal Tandoori has changed hands and sadly no longer uses the same recipes. New Indian takeout recs please???
