In celebration of Mexico’s Independence Day tomorrow, Malo in Silver Lake will be featuring specials both at the bar and for dinner. The limited edition menu is a great occasion to celebrate Mexico’s independence with some unique cocktails – or, if you prefer, beer and tequila and special dishes created just for the night.
If are vegetarian or have vegetarian friends, this is also a great spot. Get the chewy or regular chips to dip in all of their delicious salsas and their special-to-tomorrow “Ghost Chile” salsaÂ to startÂ – great for everyone. Then finish off with some refried bean tostadas or braised beef with chile and cotija cheese. The crabmeat dish also sounds rather divine!
