Family-oriented chef opens authentic Mexican restaurant in Mission

Everardo “Lalo” Alvarez’s dreams came true last week with the opening of his Mexican restaurant, The Corner Lalo’s Kitchen.

When Everardo “Lalo” Alvarez was a child, his parents taught him hard work could open a world full of possibilities. Now, he’s works as a cook in a hospital during the day, and at night, he lives his dream of being a restaurant owner and chef.

“[It’s been my dream] since I started cooking when I was 13-years-old,” Alvarez said. “This is one of my passions, to cook.”
