“Please, Sir, may I have some more?”

The 20th Annual Taste of Old Pasadena approaches quickly! $25 allows for All-You-Can-Eat samples from 30 participating restaurants, sponsored by the Old Pasadena Management District.

Here are some of our favorites:

Mignon Chocolate – dark chocolate ginger with sea salt, chili pepper ganache and Cuban mojito; just a few of the many, many tantalizing treats they have filling their display cases.

21 Choices – custom-made, mix-in frozen yogurts (extra “yummy” stars for the organic fruit ones).

Green Street Tavern – pretty and cozy with art nouveau curves, good wine and accomplished cooking.

Vertical Wine Bistro – First-rate French-Mediterranean-American cuisine. The $29 Sunday supper is one of the finest deals in town.

Tibet Nepal HouseTibetan/Nepalese flavor with a dash of Chinese/Indian. Award-winning buffet lunch.

Beyond the Olive – their rich, intense, syrupy balsamic vinegars could actually put this at the top of this list (in the dessert column).

Your appetite should now be purring in anticipation.
