Malo in Silver Lake Intros Mostly Vegan $1 Taco Nights

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your tax-deductible financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

For a couple weeks, Malo has been serving up $1 tacos on Monday nights with mostly vegan choices including Eggplant & Potato, Grilled & Marinated Vegetable and Soy-Rizo (make sure to ask that the sour cream and cheese condiments are left off). A vegetarian Potato & Chipotle taco (has cheese mixed in) and Grilled Chicken soft taco is also available for the same price. For an extra 50-cents, you're looking at meaty taco truck favorites: carne asada, al pastor and carnitas. But if you're a seafood lover, the Grilled Fish and Lobster tacos are available, albeit not at the near Monday deal ($3 and $5, respectively). Malo, as much as people loved to hate it in its early days, has quickly become a Silver Lake mainstay, especially with their own mixologist on staff creating an excellent cocktail list.
