5 of 14: Mas Malo's executive chef Robert Luna turns up the heat in downtown Los Angeles. Chef Luna's childhood memories are the inspiration behind Mas Malo's menu. Every dish on the menu has a story - like the 'Ground Beef and Pickle Taco,' which was Chef Luna's version of a cheeseburger as a kid growing up in Boyle Heights. The delicious and unique menu is part of what appeals to its guests, but the historic 1920s venue also makes it a special place that draws a diverse crowd. (KABC Photo)
