After my move from Los Feliz to Redondo Beach, I've been relying on the Pakistani places in the South Bay to make up for the grievous loss of so many (relatively) nearby great ethnic Chow such as Szechuan, Armenian, etc. After checking out the Chowhound faves of Watan, Noor, and Bombay Grocery (all of which are wonderful) i've happened upon a fantastic Pakistani grocery that has some great and cheap meat dishes. It's tiny, but half of it is taken up by the kitchen. You can buy fresh halal meats there. But the real treat here is the meat dishes. The chicken biryani was impressive, a unique and hearty take on it. The Korma is also wonderful.
