Lucky Baldwin’s

Lucky Baldwin’s

Its nooks and crannies filled with little wooden tables, English beer signs and old kegs, this rabbit warren of a pub has 63 brews on tap. On warm evenings people sit on the alley patio, sip British and Belgian beers and locally brewed Craftsman ales, and talk for hours. The jukebox is stuffed with ‘70s [...]

This Week’s SGV Food Truck Stops

This Week’s SGV Food Truck Stops

If you follow food in L.A., you know that we’re in the middle of an absolute explosion of twittering gourmet food trucks. The estimated number jumps every week — last I heard it was in the eighties. Even Canter’s Deli has a twittering truck now. If you’ve followed the trend, you probably also know that [...]

Chowder Hound: Pappa Rich

Chowder Hound: Pappa Rich

When I first walked into Pappa Rich, I assumed it was a rip-off of Beard Papa, but this Korean import (133 stores under the name “Pappa Roti” in South Korea and counting) is completely different. Its large, soft, sienna-brown buns are brushed with a barely sweet mocha coating that soaks into the golden dough and [...]

Parkway Grill

Parkway Grill

The Spago of Pasadena, Parkway Grill made a big splash when it first opened in 1985, bringing California pizzas and organic vegetables to then-stodgy Crown City. Today the concept is less fresh, and the kitchen execution isn’t as crisp as it once was, but we still love the casually elegant space—soaring wood rafters, exposed brick, [...]

The Yard House

The Yard House

Okay, so it’s kinda corporate and chain-restauranty, but we love this huge pub/restaurant anyway. It has the most diverse crowd of any Pasadena bar—all ages, all ethnicities, all social strata—it has some 150 beers on tap (and a full bar), and it has much better food (Korean BBQ beef, ahi salad, excellent burgers, a yummy [...]

Fish King

Fish King

For some people Sunday morning is about slippers and the newspaper; for others it’s about going to Fish King to get something delicious for Sunday dinner. These people know their seafood, and they get the good stuff, from wild salmon and sushi-grade ahi to opah, ono and other Pacific fish. Don’t miss the refrigerator and [...]

Slaw Dogs: The Review

Slaw Dogs: The Review

Ten months and 3,000 miles ago, I was privy to an outrageous culinary experiment. In a fit of lunacy, my fellow diners at BLT Burger attempted to combine a corn dog with ice cream. What name was given to this deranged concoction, you ask? The Dogcream. It was pretty good. Someday, perhaps, it will be [...]

Dish Bistro & Bar

Dish Bistro & Bar

The room facing Old Town’s Union Street is lovely — unfussy and nicely turned out with black woodwork, tables, chairs and simple glassware and cutlery with a bit of heft. I was early for lunch, and my dining companion was a tad bit late, so what the heck — I ordered a Bloody Mary. Spicy, [...]

Saladang

Saladang

Count us among the legion who are addicted to Saladang’s yellow curry, light fried calamari, spinach-and-duck salad, beef satay and rad na noodles. The best Thai food in the SG Valley is served by a quick-moving staff in a chic modern room with exposed ducts, colorful table settings and handsome rattan chairs. The lunch specials [...]

Dish

Dish

Dish combines a charming farmhouse décor with an inexpensive menu of American comfort food, and it’s a good spot for an all-American breakfast: cornmeal johnnycakes, applewood-smoked bacon, kids’ pancakes and the usual egg dishes. Lunch brings simple sandwiches, soups and salads. At dinner, we like the brisket and the slow-roasted ham with great mac & [...]
