Only two weeks after Los Shucos cook Marvin Flores was tragically killed, yet another cook has unexpectedly died in the Mission. Mario Hernandez, 41, a kitchen veteran at the recently reopened La Rondalla (above which he also lived), passed away this morning on the sidewalk at 22nd and Valencia, where witnesses saw him put his hands in the air before keeling over. He's believed to have suffered from diabetes and high blood pressure, which may have contributed to his demise; an official cause of death is still TBD. Condolences to his friends and family.
