After looking at the Equator Cafes beautiful website I was prepared for great fusion dishes with a serene environment surrounded by Buddhas and the chic edginess their website promised. What I found when I arrived at Equator was a tattered, dingy version of the pics from the website with the ambiance of a grunge club. The food was hit and miss with most of it being a tragic 'miss', and almost all the food seems to be pre made frozen stuff that can be found at Costco. The menu is confusing and overly ambitious, dishes did not match menu descriptions, and servers seemed equally confused on what was in each dish. Service was good, but the kitchen seemed to have trouble getting the dishes out in any kind of reasonable time and I was one of only three tables. I did take a peek at the kitchen, very tiny, messy, but not near the disaster that the ladies room was in.
Is there good fusion cuisine in Pasadena?
