FROM MEXICO TO USA

ABOUT MALINCHE

For too long, Malinalli Tenépatl, or "La Malinche," has been a misunderstood figure in Mexican history. Some see her as a traitor, but we see her as a remarkable woman who played a pivotal role in the birth of modern Mexico.


Our restaurant, Malinche, is named in her honor. We celebrate her intelligence and adaptability in the face of extraordinary circumstances. La Malinche, as history tells us, served as an interpreter for Hernán Cortés. But she was more than that – she was a bridge between two cultures, a symbol of the rich fusion that defines Mexican identity.


Just like Mexican cuisine itself, a vibrant blend of indigenous and Spanish traditions, our heritage is a beautiful tapestry woven from many threads. La Malinche, as the "mother of all Mexicans," embodies this perfectly.


At Malinche restaurant, we invite you to experience this very fusion. Our menu is a delicious exploration of the flavors that come together to create the unique culinary identity of Mexico.

 

Join us as we celebrate the legacy of La Malinche and the birth of a vibrant culture!
