Listed below are some good local restaurants in and around Canoga Park that serve healthy food which are also tasty and scrumptious
1. Indian Sweets and Spices – This is a famous local shop that is popular for serving good quality and tasty Indian food. They are specialized in serving Indian vegetarian food and do not serve any chicken or meat. All the vegetables are bound to be healthy! Though the shop may seem small and located at a corner, the food served there is yummy. They serve two different types of rice with vegetables cooked in Indian fashion. The food there is definitely healthy as there are no meats and the vegetables also are not cooked in coconut or any other fatty items. The snacks that you find there are also vegetarian and are generally baked items rather than fried. If you are in mood for some healthy Indian vegetarian food, try going to Indian Sweets and Spices or also locally known as ISS
2. PF Changs at Aranda Center – This restaurant is also another local favorite and they do serve healthy food. Though some items on the menu may tend to be more in calories and fat, try to stick with those food items that are lean and healthy. Chang’s famous chicken lettuce wraps are quite popular and most ordered item. You have the option of ordering fish, chicken or meat in your dishes which I feel is one of a good way to eat healthy by avoiding red meat. They do have vegetarian meals on their menu and they do customize your dish as you like at the restaurant. The restaurant is located in the main business area and is generally packed during nights and weekends. The ambience of the restaurant is excellent and the seating arrangements also work well.
3. Maggiano’s Little Italy – It is a popular Italian restaurant in Aranda Center which serves tasty Italian food to its customers. Their menu features healthy options like baked foods and pastas. You can select from the range of pastas and sandwiches to healthy soups and salads. The service there is pretty good with a pretty warm ambience. They have ample seating available and as always, you can customize your dishes when you order to make it healthier
4. Chipotle at Ventura Blvd. – Chipotle is famous for its Mexican food and here you can try healthier versions of the same. Try ordering up on Burrito bowl and try to cut back on sour cream and cheese. Instead ask if you can substitute with guacamole. You can order healthy food like salads or try for smaller portions of burritos that look like minis. The only problem is that the restaurant is so popular you may have to stand in line for 5-10 minutes before you get to the serving place. But trust me, it is worth the wait!
