Ah, the classic colors that remind us of Palm Springs: white, turquoise and orange. After launching a location in Silver Lake and on Melrose Avenue, Tomato Pie has come to South Pasadena with George Jetson colors and 50s shapes and accouterment. Form and function! We ordered two of the “house pies”: Mr. White and Joe […]

Patakan

Patakan

Nondescript. Easy to miss because of the corner El Pollo Loco and Subway chains garishly grabbing one’s attention. Look to the right side of the parking lot, toward a flock of umbrellas. Beyond the “wall” of potted trees is an outdoor eating area that leads into the small, slightly dated, but very clean interior of […]

Phoenix Food Boutique in South Pas

Phoenix Food Boutique in South Pas

“Food” and “boutique” are not generally words that we expect to find in the same sentence unless we’re thinking of artisan jams or pickled homegrown cukes. Yet, Phoenix Food Boutique in South Pasadena aims to fit the definition—”a business that serves a sophisticated or specialized clientele.” Chrysanthemum tea, a barley and lime drink, osmanthus with […]

Fiore: A Jolly Good Choice for Lunch

My daughter raved, so when friends came into town from Palm Springs and we were going to catch up over a Saturday lunch, we walked a few blocks to Fiore Market Café. My girl didn’t even have to look at the menu, ordering her new favorite: the roast chicken on homemade bread with basil, walnut […]

Heirloom Cafe: Sweet & Savory

Heirloom Cafe: Sweet & Savory

It’s easy to miss, tucked around the corner, and especially since Busters so easily catches one’s eye right next to the Metro, as well as Mix ‘n Munch and the new La Monarca Bakery. But right up Meridian Avenue, just north of Mission in South Pasadena is Heirloom Bakery and Cafe. Having lived in South Pasadena […]

The Toyota Farm to Table Tour Comes to South Pas

The Toyota Farm to Table Tour Comes to South Pas

We don’t usually feature events with such forthright corporate credentials, but Toyota’s “Farm to Table Tour” seems worthwhile. It brings top local chefs to honest-to-goodness farmers markets to provide complimentary (!) nibbles to potential Toyota customers, who are given “the opportunity to experience Toyota’s newest hybrid vehicles”—a small price to pay for free eats from […]
