LA Weekly's Description

Balti, in theory at least, is a kind of Kashmiri curry with roots in the Islamic cuisine of northern Pakistan, cooked and served in handled metal pots that resemble miniature woks. In practice, the word balti has come to mean almost any fiercely hot curry served to the overwhelmingly English clientele of the baltihouses of Birmingham - food tailored, as a friend says, to the alcohol-deadened palates of drunken football hooligans. Like a Tommyburger, a balti worthy of the name can still be tasted when one is in the clutches of the next morning's hangover. Agra, an Indian restaurant in Silver Lake, certainly serves cuisine more subtle than that, but there is a considerable list of baltis on the menu, and they are overwhelmingly, punishingly hot, with all the refinement of last week's 50 Cent remix played at earth-thumping volume from the back of a Scion. “Do you want that American hot or English hot?” sneers the waiter. “I will be warning you: American hot is a little milder than what the English are calling medium.”

  • Pekka P. on 01/19/14

    Awkward strip mall location, awesome authentic Indian food under $8! Try mango pickle and garlic naan.

  • Myles Y. on 08/22/12

    Chicken Tikka Spicy add the combo for an additional $5 totally worth it.

  • Harg S. on 11/06/10

    The tofu masala is the best. Down with meat.

  • Danielle N. on 10/22/10
