Zam Zam Market: 99 Essential Restaurants 2013 

Thursday, Feb 28 2013

Culver City's Zam Zam Market, home to the best Pakistani cooking in town, used to be as frustrating as it was delicious. The kitchen hours appeared to be based solely on the time of services at the mosque down the street, meaning that if you didn't beat the post-Jum'ah crowds to intensely spiced biryani plates flecked with cardamom pods, or cumin-enhanced seekh kebabs grilled over the open flame, the kitchen would sell out, forcing you to wait yet another weekend. This year, though, Zam Zam expanded to a daily affair — albeit only for take-out service — and the ability to pick up a box of heavenly, brick-red tandoori chicken whenever you want seems almost a surreal joy. You can imagine our reaction when we discovered the $9 mix plate: a smorgasbord of curries, grilled meats, rice and naan — something like the halal version of a KFC family meal. 11028 Washington Blvd., Culver City; (310) 841-2504. Thurs.-Sun., noon-10 p.m. Entrees $6-$10. No alcohol.
