Trap Kitchen LA Founders.

*Ex-gang members Malachai Jenkins and Roberto Smith grew tired of the street life and sought after a positive change.

You could say that both of the LA natives pledged their allegiance to their prior life and wouldn’t have gotten along.

“All money isn’t good money, Jenkins said

From there Jenkins pursued a culinary degree. He enrolled himself into Le Cordon Bleu, and from there things began to look up. A mutual friend introduced Jenkins to Smith and the two became friends extremely fast. Towards the end of Jenkins’ course, he began cooking meals and posting pics of the finished products on Instagram.

The chefs can make whatever your heart desires. They cook everything from chicken and waffles to the highly requested $25 Pineapple Friday dish.
