Puran's La Brea - best kept secret!

Why are the Hounds not talking about this place more?? It's AWESOME.

Understated and unpretentious, it is the best kept secret in LA. Everything was so fresh and extra-yummy because it was, above all, healthy. I don't believe my herb grilled chicken had a drop of grease in it. It had everything I love: BASIL! LEMON! ARTICHOKES! I loved that the veggies were an integral part of the entree, and not merely an accompaniment. I must admit though, this dish is probably too lemony for most tastes, but I happen to love lemon and always over-do it when I cook - Oops. Filling, but not at all heavy.

And I just can't get enough of that tomato-basil-garlic dip that comes with bread. I could probably just make meal of that alone.

Very reasonably priced for what you get: good service, organic veggies, and a healthy meal without having to pick through an entire menu of unhealthy choices.
