Our Favorite Burger (at the Moment)

Our Favorite Burger (at the Moment)

We have a soft spot for In ‘n Out because the fries are so fresh and piping hot that you have to eat them immediately, or else you might as well toss ‘em. They are as fresh as it gets, but because they’re so fresh—watch the employee slam the potatoes through the “hand cut” machine—their [...]

2014 L.A. Street Food Fest

We’ve heard good things and bad things, marvelous raves and emphatic thumbs down, but we’re still going to provide a promo for this year’s L.A.

Depressed Cake Shop

Depressed Cake Shop

Not just feeling sad, but feeling empty. Not just short-tempered and irritable, but bursting with anger over little, minor hiccups. Loss of interest. Loss of pleasure.

A [...]

An impromptu invite and we found ourselves seated at the bar on the second story of Crossings restaurant in South Pasadena. The small, cozy front room can be seen from Mission Street with white on white tables (tablecloths, napkins and dinnerware), u-shaped ribbed beige booth and matching chairs backed by the open kitchen and sided [...]

Friday Night Eats, Drinks & Music

Friday Night Eats, Drinks & Music

We stepped into a darkened room devoid of tables and chairs. What glowed under muted, pointed lights was a bar, behind which stood a man placing a serving bowl onto the countertop. We stepped closer. Dotting the bar were 3″ x 4″ pieces of paper that read “Bar + Fish,” which then listed a couple [...]

Urban Kitchen

Urban Kitchen

One woman was a corporate executive in the broadcast industry and the other woman had “one foot in the kitchen and one foot at the beach.” Chef Michelle Hohman is owner of Urban Kitchen in South Pasadena. Chef Samantha is her partner in cooking. A few steps north of the crumbling Rialto, but along a strip [...]
