Bad Son Tacos is a sliver of a taqueria, tucked inside an Asian supermarket that you’ll find deep within a Little Tokyo shopping mall. The titular “bad son” is co-owner and chef Elvis Prado, who left a two-year job managing his dad’s Lincoln Heights restaurant, La Morenita, following a father-son argument. “It just got to a point where we couldn’t work together anymore,” says Prado. “Everything’s cool with my dad now. It was just one little fight that ended after a couple of days. When he learned about the name [Bad Son], he just laughed it off.”
