Malo, as in 'bad'
Today Malo came up in discussion. It means bad in Spanish because it is. Plain and simple. Although it's one of the few hipster Mexican restaurants in Silverlake/Los Feliz, it's just over priced, over hyped food. For drinks it's fine- a margarita, Dos Equis, tequila. But stale chips, weak salsa, bland entrees... I'll take El Carmen or El Compadre over Malo. I just have to put it out there because so many people love it. And with places like La Parilla, El Parian and Chichen Itza so close, it's a shame that so many favor Malo.
