I asked the cashier about her favorite thing on the menu. She said the carne asada burrito or tacos are the most popular. With that in mind, I picked two soft tacos: carne asada taco and pork (nope, they don't call it carnitas), as well as a hard shell chicken taco for good measure.
I started to pay with plastic, but all they take is paper. So, I hurried to Ken's Market on the corner for some cash, and when I made it back to Malena's... my plate of tacos was ready! As I sat down at one of the few tables with my tacos, a bowl of salsa and chips were slid towards me. Aw, and it's the same bowl that Fiesta Grill has too.
would it be too much trouble to fry the chips up in-house?
It's just $7, if you're so inclined.
