What You'll Get
Though coveting thy neighbor's wife or underground sprinkler system is beyond the pale, longing for a mouthful of his cuisine is an understandable desire. Today's Groupon satisfies desires to eat from the table of our nation's neighbor: for $20, you get $40 worth of Mexican fare and drinks at Malo Restaurant, located in Silver Lake. This Groupon is valid for dine-in only. Malo’s innovative menu of upscale Mexican fare features delectable brunch, lunch, and dinner dishes prepared with fresh ingredients. Ignite a moonlit feast with the fried-to-order chips and salsa ($4), or upgrade to the salsa flight, starring standouts such as tomato and serrano chili, a creamy-yet-spicy burnt habanero and crème salsa, and classic pico de gallo and tomatillo ($12). Sip spoonfuls of the chicken pozole soup ($7), or opt for the grilled-chicken tostada salad, a mouthy medley of fried corn tortillas, avocado, and beans with cotija cheese and pico dressing ($10). Delectable a la carte dishes include classics such as chili relleno with jack cheese and ranchero sauce ($9).
For mouthbuds hungering for inventive twists and shouts, Malo’s hard-shell tacos feature combos such as the ground beef and pickle ($6 for two tacos) and potato and cheddar ($5.50 for two tacos). Other new-fangled dishes include the pork carnitas marinated with Coca-Cola and fresh orange juice ($12). All items can be sided with a variety of edible backup singers such as refried beans ($2.50), yucca fries with chipotle dip ($4), and Mexican corn on the cob ($3.50). The swanky eatery boasts a sleek, industrial-style interior with red velvet wallpaper and glossy black subway tiles along with an outdoor patio. The upscale, laid back décor makes Malo an ideal location for a romantic rendezvous with a significant other or for clandestine meetings of the Gary Shandling look-alike club.

- The food is excellent and well-priced. Some would say that their portions (taco dishes) aren't very hearty but they do me well considering there's [sic] so many delicious appetizers. I really dig their salsa's, esp [sic] the creamy habanero. Taco's [sic] are delicious of course. – Drew M., Yelp
- The tequila selection at Malo is insane!!! I have been trying to go once a week to get a few different tastings under my belt. Every time I visit the bartenders are very helpful with new selections for me to experience. The tacos rule there too, they are dope!!!
