Malo Experience - Saturday Evening

brieflunchcounter | Mar 31, 2007 09:18 PM

My husband wanted tacos al pastor for dinner this evening, so we decided to try Malo. We hadn't been there before. Made a reservation through Open Table for 2 at 6:45. When we arrived, the restaurant was half-empty but the hostess could not seat us at any of the open two-tops against the wall - even with the res. She led us to the table a step away from the service area. We finally just led ourselves to a two-top down the center of the restaurant's main room. The two-tops against the wall stayed empty the entire time we were there, so we had no idea what her deal was with the seating options.

We opened the menu to find that chips and salsa are extra (should have checked this site first since you were all on this years ago!) and that rice and beans are also extra. What the....??

I ordered the soft tacos carne asada and my husband had the soft tacos al pastor. These were the saving grace of the evening. The tortillas were lovely, very fresh and flavorful. The meat used in both dishes was tender and tasty. So, something good. Not a total waste. Wouldn't go back, though.

Anyone have a favorite restaurant for tacos al pastor?
