One Angeleno known for embracing his Mexican-American culture is beloved actor, Danny Trejo.

He's a man of many talents: author, restaurateur and community advocate. "The SoCal Scene's" Melvin Robert had the chance to meet up with the actor turned restaurateur at "Trejo's Cantina" — where his menu features recipes from his childhood.

The cantina is just one of several restaurants Trejo now operates through a growing culinary empire that also includes two locations of Trejo's Tacos and Trejo's Donuts.
