in honor of last thursday's pakistani independence day, a pakistani friend of mine treated me to his favorite pak restaurant, Bilal, 1117 Manchester in Inglewood (several blocks west of the 405). Don't let the Inglewood address discourage you, the neighborhood is not bad and is on the Inglewood/Westchester border.
terrific food all around. highlights: kabuli roast (lamb shank), garlic naan, chicken curry, lamb vindaloo, and mango lassi. the menu should be familiar to anyone whose eaten at Indian places. the meat is halal, which tends to be more fresh.
prices very reasonable, most entrees in the $6-8 range, dinner combo only $8
