Just returned from a visit to the Pasadena Rose Bowl and checked with Chow before leaving only to be dismayed at the reports of bad food in Pasadena. While roaming the streets looking for a place to eat came across DAISY MINT, 1218 E.. COLORADO BLVD., (626)792-2999. It's been open for 3 weeks and is run by refugees from the art design and product marketing fields. It's Asian fusion cuisine and from this 40 year resident of Northern Ca. who's had much asian food I can't begin to tell you how impressed I was. Liked it so much that ate there a 2nd night with relatives from the Irvine area who came up to visit. . Try the tofu appetizer, the salmon curry, the thai noodles. Visit and let me hear your comments.
