Rate-A-Restaurant #401: Holi Organic Indian Cuisine

Location: 2131 Colorado Blvd. (Eagle Rock)

Type of restaurant: Indian

We stipulated:
Maria and I continue "New Food Sundays," inspired by the Los Angeles Times' latest 101 Restaurants special issue. Holi is located in the same spot as Penny Oven, and we knew we wanted something fast and nearby -- and we hadn't had Indian food in a while.
They stipulated: Holi is only open for takeout between 4 and 9 p.m. "We make all of our food from scratch using only organic ingredients. Order delivery from any delivery platform or order through our site direct then come pick up your food whenever you like."

What we ordered
: Chicken with Pickling Spices (A traditional North Indian curry made with a ginger garlic paste and Indian pickling spice) $13.95; Chicken Tikka Masala (Traditional spiced tomato and creamy curry) $13.95; Aloo Tiki (Wood oven-roasted potato patties served with green chutney) $5.95; naan $2.50.

High point:
The naan was amazing, almost like a Wetzel's Pretzel style flavor.

Low point: The cinnamon cola I was hoping to also get was not available.

Overall impression:
These take-out only restaurants have become more commonplace during the pandemic, but I don't quite know what stands out here beyond being organic. It's OK, but not too memorable.

Will we return:
  I wouldn't rule it out, but we have other go-to Indian restaurants.
