Located near Cedar- Riverside, Malabari Kitchen is a gem of a find. The cuisine focuses on India’s rarely encountered southwestern coastal region of Malabar, a one-time center of the spice trade coveted for its black pepper. There’s a lot to enjoy about this place, not the least of which is the fresh, made-to-order, quality food and its aromatic effervescence.

and the preparation was served with condiments of mango chutney, hot pepper paste, and fresh raita—something I hadn’t previously been offered with this dish.

Malabari food has clearly been influenced by many countries as they came to the region. All dishes are authentic malabari dishes featuring fish, oysters, mussels and several different red meats.
