We already lost Jack's Casbah a few years back, so please patronize the yummy Caesar's Grill on Allen before it too dies and there's no middle eastern takeout to be had anywhere in Pasadena. Caesar's Grill has delicious chicken and lamb kebobs, among other delicacies, and everything is made to order when you order it. (Be forewarned: as a result, service is kinda slow. Best to order ahead and pick up to go.) And while the rice pilaf is a tad greasy and thus somewhat sinful, it's certainly a treat every once in a while. Unfortunately, rarely is the joint crowded, and the Lebanese owners told me that business dropped off somewhat after Sept. 11. So, give it a try and then go back again, and again. You won't be sorry and I'll be forever grateful.
On a related note, has anyone eaten at the Lebanese Kitchen on Washington? It doesn't look terribly inviting, but if Caesar's dies it will be all that's left in the area, I think.
