Azitra offfers Paleo and AIP Denver Indian Meal options. They offer both a gluten free and vegan menu and servers will work with you to customize menu options - even reported to work with those on the AIP diet.

Azitra

Azitra

Locations:

535 Zang St. Suite C, Broomfield, CO 80021 (with one additional location in Raleigh, NC)

Azitra was recommended by a reader after a great experience finding Paleo friendly dishes available there (thanks Adam!). Azitra may be one of the most Paleo friendly Indian restaurant I have heard of (not something that is easy to find). The majority of menu items are marked as either Gluten Free, Vegan or both. In addition, they commit to cooking with a combination of coconut oil and coconut milk in many of their dishes as requested. In talking to them, they confirmed that menu items and sauces are made from scratch, cutting down on the worry of unknown commercial ingredients. They also confirmed that they do not use refined sugars in their entrees (may want to reconfirm individually about each dish with your server just to be 100% careful). Of those vegetable dishes that contain potatoes, they confirmed they are happy to make the dishes without them. So if you are looking to eat out and craving some international options, Azitra in Broomfield is definitely an option to consider.

Found other great options for eating out on the Paleo diet or getting Paleo food delivered in the Denver area that you think others should know about? Please leave suggestions of any additional resources or paleo restaurant denver has to offer in the comments below!

  • Adam Sloat

    Add Azitra Indian food to this list. In Bloomfield. We just ate there last night and my wife who is medically required to eat paleo-like meals had a ton of choices. From coconut milk subbed for dairy to tasty lentil flat bread. She had a great masala salmon and lamb skewers. They worked hard to accommodate and were happy to do so. I can eat anything and it was one of the best Indian meals I’ve had in a while!

    • Thanks so much Adam for the suggestion! It would be great to expand the list to include Paleo Indian options. I’ll plan to add your suggestion of Azitra to this guide. I’ll run through some research on them and the dietary substitutions they offer.

      • Adam Sloat

        Thanks Zach, that’s very cool of you. You might consider calling them because there’s a lot of tweaking they can do to the menu. I don’t even think the lentil bread they brought us was on the menu. Just know that they were really happy to make sure we were happy and careful – like seriously careful – to let us know what was dairy, grain and flour-free, among others (even beyond our waiter, the servers were clear to make sure we both knew that my dish had dairy in it so she wouldn’t try it). It was just such a feel-good dining experience, which can be rare for those eating paleo or other elimination-type diets. Especially if a spouse like me can eat anything and wants to enjoy food together!

        • Thanks again Adam! I was able to get in touch with Azitra and add in a write up about them to the restaurants covered in this article. I’m always thrilled to hear about restaurants being careful and accommodating to those of us on Paleo style medical diets! Hopefully the more we spread the word, support and encourage those restaurants that offer these great options, the more choices we will have with these diets. It’s always a nice treat to be able to eat out and not worry you are sabotaging your progress and health. Thanks for spreading the word!
