A good buddy of mine wants to take me out to eat.
What I'm looking for is something moderate in price (I don't want to make it too pricey for her -- we're probably going to get a bottle of wine anyway) anywhere between Pasadena and Irvine.
We love trying foods from new countries and digging in to the obscure. But if that's not possible, we just enjoy good stuff. Good quality, good service and a decent or fun atmosphere. Great food a must.
Thanks in advance.
