Fact #1: Indian food is the best thing to happen to vegetarianism since Morrissey. Fact #2: Mirch Masala makes the best Indian food that has ever been served on Capitol Hill. In the Broadway space that once housed Macheezmo Mouse and 17 subsequent joints, Mirch Masala dishes out Indian delights that are exquisite but not expensive. Entrées are kept hot in steel pots suspended over individual flames, and the fresh, flaky saag is a thing of wonder. (213 Broadway E, 709-0111. 11 am–10 pm.)
