Uh Oh: Straits of Malaya Closing on 18th St, NW

“Dear PoP,

We passed by the Straits of Malaya this evening and there is a large “Farewell” banner and a poster in the window about the charity they will be working with instead of running the restaurant.”

More sad news for the Dupont area. Last Friday we learned of Dunkin Donuts closing on 17th St, NW and now Straits of Malaya is closing at 1836 18th Street, NW. We had previously judged them to very strong reviews back in Jan. ’09. Indeed I checked out their Web site and it is no longer online. Sad news indeed. I suppose the silver lining is that it is nice to hear that they’ll be working with a charity in some capacity.
