La Caravana

La Caravana

Hearty, tasty Salvadorian specialties—pupusas, meat-filled pepitos (like empanadas), savory chicken sautéed with onions and potatoes, carne asada—are served in a handsome room decorated with plush booths and Central American art and woodwork. It’s a much nicer dining experience than the shabby block it’s on suggests. 1306 N. Lake Ave., Pasadena, 626.791.7378, Salvadorian. L & D [...]

Off-Ramp: The Radio Show

Off-Ramp: The Radio Show

Top’s

Top’s

This born-in-1952 fast-food institution has been spiffed up for a new era, with gleaming tile, shiny laminated tables and modern lighting. The care in the front of the house is also evident in the kitchen, which turns out large burgers with lots of crisp lettuce and good tomatoes; tasty turkey and veggie burgers; a full [...]

The Coffee Gallery

The Coffee Gallery

So the coffee’s not the best in town, and the service is often bizarrely slow. But we like this appealingly scruffy place anyway. The live music in the separate concert room can be terrific, and the private room is great for a committee meeting, study group or book club. 2029 N. Lake St., Altadena, 626.398.7917, coffeegallery.com, [...]

Lebanese Kitchen

Lebanese Kitchen

It could not have a blander interior, but the warmth of the people and the quality of the food make up for it. (Besides, we usually take out.) Besides delicious kebabs (the lamb is excellent), falafel and a tasty, smoky baba ganoush, we like such harder-to-find specialties as foul (a ground mixture of fava and [...]
