Situated in the heart of downtown Silver Spring, La Malinche offers an extensive tapas menu with authentic Spanish and Mexican dishes as well as more contemporary small plates. The most popular menu items include the Tacos de Pescado (tortillas stuffed with pan-seared tilapia, guacamole, tomatoes, onions, and a cilantro lime aioli) and the Chuletitas de Cordero (grilled lamb chops and fingerling potatoes in a demi glaze sauce.) Locals love the fresh, authentic dishes with simple yet complex flavors.
Stop by during their daily Happy Hour from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. for discounted sangria, wine, beer, and liquor as well as $5 and $6 tapas. Order the popular Croquetas de Pollo, a tasty combination of spicy jalapeños and chicken that is breaded and fried.
Located less than one mile from Fenwick, La Malinche is open Sunday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., and Friday and Saturday 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.
