Announcing Malgudi, Fine South Indian Cuisine

The Heritage India family of restaurants is proud to announce Malgudi, opening Feb. 19 on our Glover Park property.

Serving fine South Indian cuisine, Malgudi is inspired by the work of renowned Indian novelist R.K. Narayan. Malgudi is a fictional town somewhere in South India located on the shores of the fictional river Sarayu.

Malgudi is open for lunch and dinner Tuesday through Sunday at 2400 Wisconsin Av NW.

Here’s what awaits you:

With rice and millets as a staple, the cuisine is famous for its various spices and the region has been a traditional exporter of spices from time immemorial, catching the fancy and interest of the Arabs, Dutch, French and English sailors who discovered the flavors of cardamom, pepper, cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg used by the local people in their foods. Coconuts are an equally important element of most South Indian food, as coconut palms grow in abundance in the region, particularly along the long coastline of South India.
The region’s food includes lentils, spices, chilies, coconuts and other locally available fruits and vegetables such as tamarind, plantains, gourds, root tubers, garlic and ginger.
While much of the food of South India is vegetarian owing to the dominant Hindu and Brahmanical norms, fish and seafood dishes are popular in the coastal areas and different meats and game are also relished by people across the region.

View the menu then view these soul-satisfying dishes on your table on your next visit to Heritage India and Malgudi. Enjoy!
