We're traveling to Pasadena for a quick weekend trip and want to eat well.
We want to feel and taste LA.
After a search on Chowhound there seems to be a dearth of posts on Pasadena (and area). Lots of discussion about a particular food but no Best of Pasadena area.
We have 2 days and 5 meals (2 dinners, a breakfast and a lunch). We don't want to spend tons of time in the car but are more than willing to get out of Old Town.
NO CPK OR Cheesedate Factory. No need to break the bank either, but can be included in the mix. All types of food would be considered.
Many folks suggest South Pasadena? What's the scoop on that?
SO what would you suggest if you were visiting the Pasadena area?
