Badmaash Close to Opening, Needs Final Health Permit

Matthew Kang is the Lead Editor of Eater LA. He has covered dining, restaurants, food culture, and nightlife in Los Angeles since 2008. He's the host of K-Town, a YouTube series covering Korean food in America, and has been featured in Netflix's Street Food show.

The anticipation is palpable at Badmaash (Indian for bad-ass), a new Indian gastropub underway downtown, filling social media avenues with the latest updates. Right now owner Pawan Mahendro and his son are adding finishing touches to the restaurant's interior and awaiting a final health permit. A few months ago they had hoped to be ready within a few days, but delays held up the launch.


Badmaash appears to be about two-and-a-half weeks away from serving playful takes on Indian street food. Think curried pork belly, chicken tandoori, chicken "bouillabaisse," and spicy Indian chicken. There's also fish and chips, masala fries, burgers, and more. Mahendro hopes the spot resembles a bit of an Indian gastropub, sporting craft beers, Indian beers and imported sodas.
