Paradise Biryani Pointe, which could be described as the Indian Bibigo if one were so inclined, is now open in Artesia’s Little India, serving dishes from a tandoor, Hyderabad cuisine, and its eponymous specialty of biryani, the Mughali-descended rice dishes served choc-a-block with meats, veggies, and spices, adapted by multiple regions across the subcontinent. The chain is currently 30-strong, with franchised locations from Santa Clara to Jackson Heights. The newbie in Artesia offers a menu with dishes like goat sukha and goat masala, salmon tikka, Chinese-influenced Manchurian shrimp, and four types of biryani, among both vegetarian and meat-free dishes. The opening in Southern California is part of a growth that will see the chain expand to 45 stores by the end of next year. 18158 Pioneer Blvd. Artesia; 562-666-2334. [IW]
