In another thread, I had mentioned two Mexican restaurants on Foothill east of Sierra Madre.
The first one is
La Nueva Posada Mexican Restaurant
2835 E Foothill Blvd
Pasadena, CA 91107-3463 Phone: (626) 793-7191
The second one is
Ranchero Mexican Food
2663 E Foothill Blvd
Pasadena, CA 91107-3436 Phone: (626) 793-0446
Anyone been to these two? Ranchero has great margaritas, but service seems poor unless you are a regular. And their Diablo sauce is one of the hottest sauces I have ever had in a restaurant (I have a fairly high tolerance for spicy heat).
Opposite Panda Inn, a little further east, a new Chinese restaurant has just opened its doors - Pei Wei Asian Cuisine. Looks like this is a chain with 3 established stores in Newport Beach, Irvine and Encinitas. Has anyone been to these?
