My first visit to this wonderful restaurant. It is small, with an interesting fusion menu. The chef had a Pho restaurant in Glendale, but this is Asian with a European flair. There are noodle soup dishes, dishes with rice, great salads and interesting "starters" and main dishes. The next time I am going to try the meatballs filled with chocolate. This is a small space in a building filled with small restaurants. Do not be put off by the not-so-pretty building--this is a top-notch dining experience. And Chef Kimmy is amazing--she does the cooking but takes time to make sure the diner is happy. More

The only thing I wasn't crazy about was the bathroom being weirdly, eerily underground (downstairs). It feels like it's about to turn into an "IT" (Stephen King) scene. I was looking for a red balloon. Anyway, also very reasonable pricing. Thank you. More

I recently discovered The Impossible Burger at Umami Burger in Pasadena, and now I'm hooked! It's an entirely plant based burger that looks like meat, tastes like meat, smells like meat, chews like meat, and is simply delicious! Even my non-vegetarian friends were knocked out by them! That alone is reason to return often, but, in addition, the cocktails are good, the service is excellent, and the atmosphere is lively. It's rather loud, so it's not the place to go for an intimate conversation, but it's a fun place. More

Sushi | Pasadena, Pasadena / San Gabriel

Love this new Japanese restaurant in Old Town next to 85C Bakery. The food is delicious with friendly service in a clean modern setting with wooden elements. The service charge of 18% is included with the bill, but we were so impressed with our waiter that we tipped more for his impeccable hospitable service. Throughout the meal, he made sure we had everything we needed and was extremely courteous. The food is delicious and came out promptly and perfectly spaced out so we had just the right amount of food each time. The seafood miso broth is a good way to start the meal. We also loved the the blue crab avocado dip which is a must try dish! We ordered the futomaki cut-roll with blue crab that is not on the menu, and it was delicious! The miso black cod is also a highlight as well as the seafood chawamushi (steamed egg). We were also impressed by some of the plating of the dishes as they were served beautifully. Overall, a wonderful dining experience with delicious food, friendly service, and nice ambience. Perfect for a date, special occasion like birthday, or just for a memorable dinner. More
