If so, feast your eyes on the Spice Route section of the menu at our Dupont Circle restaurant. It’s full of innovative blends that result when east meets west. American and Continental ingredients are the basis of the tapas-inspired small plates. Think crab meat, portobello mushrooms, polenta cake, salmon, shrimp cocktail, calamari, a mozzarella and tomato salad, and so on. Then imagine them spiced up with Indian seasonings and preparation techniques.

What results are well-executed worldly creations. Latin America and the East come together in tapas such as Southwestern roasted garlic and black bean hummus with Parmesan nan. Another such selection is spicy lamb vindaloo empanadas, pictured. The empanadas are a spicy combination of stewed lamb and potatoes contained in a traditional Mexican empanada. ¡Qué rico!
If you crave more such Latin American small plates, we also invite you to visit Fiesta, a Tex-Mex Tapas Restaurant and Lounge just a few doors south of Heritage India Dupont Circle. Under the same ownership as Heritage India, Fiesta is a celebration of upbeat flavors and colors inspired by the American Southwest. The menu features a fusion of Latin-inspired and Continental tapas as well as tacos, enchiladas, fajitas and other Mexican classics. Like Heritage India Dupont Circle, the don’t-miss Happy Hour includes drink specials and two-for-one tapas (Buy one, get a second of equal or lesser value free in the bar area only).
Fiesta happy hour takes place nightly from 4:30-7:30 pm at 1327 Connecticut Av NW. Visit www.fiestaloungedc.com and connect with Fiesta on Facebook and Twitter for all the Latin flavors your taste buds desire. ¡Buen provecho!
