The gist: A food cart turned glamorous brick and mortar with a successful crowdfunding campaign, Malka opened just in time for the pandemic to hit. The restaurant now serves its eclectic, maximalist bowls and sandwiches for takeout and delivery.
The food: Malka’s food is tough to pin down, but often involves rice bowls and salads loaded with fresh fruits, marinated meats, herbs, spices, and sauces. For instance the Important Helmet for Outer Space is a barbecue curry pork and rice bowl with avocado, mushrooms, tamarind slaw, crispy shallots, lime, and more. The Bellflower is a jasmine rice salad with fresh fruit and vegetables, piles of herbs, nuts, sesame, a choice of protein, and coconut-lime fish sauce.
