I just moved to Pasadena, and from my research on this board, I don't see much great eatin' here! Oh, and I don't have a car. Yeah, I know.
So here's the deal. I've got about a month before my new job starts, and I've got some savings, and once I start I'll be making good money, so I'm going to spend the next 26 days eating great food that is within walking distance of Gold Line Metro stops.
I know there are stops in Chinatown and Little Tokyo, though I don't really know what those places are, having literally arrived here an hour ago, and never having been in California in my life before! But I love Chinese and Japanese food, so those stops sound promising. Dumplings? Real ramen? Xiao Long Bao? Etc?
But within (safe) walking distance of Gold Line stops.
Oh, and it doesn't have to be cheap. I mean, cheap is fine, but not necessary. On the other hand, since I'll be doing much of my eating alone (until I start making friends), I am interested in places where I won't feel too awkward eating dinner alone. Sushi at the counter, anyone?
So, let 'er rip! Your favorite eating stops within walking distance of Gold Line Metro stops. Go!
