We were then off to dinner at Malo, a popular Nuevo-Mexican spot in Silver Lake.
Malo struck me as the type of place you pull up to in a low rider, real LA style music pumping with the girls in tow. Seriously though, Malo was
another home run on this trip . Doris greeted us with a lovely French accent and hip outfit with a hipster hat to boot. We started with Malo’s famous
margaritas. And there is good reason they are famous; Each one had a deliciously distinct and unique flavor, definitely not your average run-of-the-
mill margaritas.   
Angelina:  Gran Centenario Rosangel Tequila, Hibiscus Simple Syrup, Lime Juice and Chili-Lime rim
100% Organic Puro Margarita aka "Perfect": 4 Copas Blanco Tequila, Agave Nectar and Organic Lime Juice
Spicy Cucumber Margarita, a "spicy and fresh take on the classic": Casa Noble Silver Tequila, Cucumber, Agave Nectar and Tapatio Hot Sauce
Medicina Latina, "a margarita with a ginger kick": 4 Copas Reposado tequila, Ginger Agave Nectar and Lime Juice

Then it was time to eat and from the looks of things,  our crowd was ready for a feast.
We started with Salsa flight and Chewy Chips (Malo is famous for the undercooked chips which are part crispy, part chewy) Salsas:
·        Burnt Habanero & Creme (super spicy!)
·        Serrano Chile & Tomato
·        Chile Negro y Chocolate (newest one)
·        Pico de Gallo
·        Tomatillo
TACOS- 2 per order:
hard shell:
·        Ground Beef & Pickle
·        Vegetarian Ground Beef & Pickle
·        Shrimp & Bacon
soft shell- open-faced on corn tortilla
·        Carnitas (pork)
·        Baja Shrimp-(fried)
Oaxaca Shrimp, a Malo Favorite, served with flour tortillas:
shrimp sauteed with pasilla chile, chipotle and cream

·        Organic Vegetarian Spanish Rice
·        Organic Black Beans
·        Fried Plantains with creamy & spicy salsa
After Dinner and more than several tequila cocktails, we were ready to meet more friends at the rooftop party of the Le Petite Ermitage hotel. A large
group of eccentric party revelers lounged the night away as the chic LA breeze combed everyone’s hair in a windblown style only mother nature could
muster up!!

LA is going to be an adventure in which I will revel in and I promise you Optimist readers that The LA Optimist will be nothing short of extraordinary!
