Pasadena is weak!

And the luggage room, while not falling under any traditional style that I know of is fantastic.

Asian Night Market to Open in Pasadena

It's actually a great place and they have even better locations then the one they chose. If they can get bigger in the future there is the alley above the goldline right of way which is completely empty and extends about three blocks and has other connecting alleyways as well

There are tons of asians in the area as well as non-asians (myself one) who have traveled and love the concept and only wish we had something like it.

Abricott - Pasadena is looking not quite as weak

Also note, they do not have a liquor license and let you bring in your own, and are very accommodating.

This alone makes the going to the place worth it. They are still working out the kinks I think of running the place but it is a nice environ, the food is mostly good and reasonably priced.

Late Friday (after 8pm) deals in Pasadena

Some ribs which looked and tasted like bad boiled pork slathered afterwords in a ketchupy tasting BBQ sauce. Probably right out os an industrial sized tub from some restaurant supply company.
I remember we ordered steamed veggies as a side since my wife did not want fries. the broccoli had that awful smell and taste of something sitting in the back of the fridge to long.
And their house beer wasn't very good.

If I have to go again, I'll try the fired chicken you recommended.

I have never been served such horrible food as I had at Hamlet. Maybe I ordered the wrong stuff but it was bad or inedible.

Pho Ga in San Gabriel

When golden deli is to crowded there is vietnam house across the street. Same owners as golden deli with a larger menu. The restaurants is a bit less comfortable with no booths but more tables. Neither golden deli nor vietnam house has the greatest Pho Ga. Better to go to a Pho Ga specialty place. The chicken curry though is excellent.

Looking for a great Korean BBQ place close to Claremont area

Paik's Bonga restaurant. This restaurant is about 15-20 minutes drive without traffic from claremont. Pretty accessable to non koreans. The food is really good. The meat is excellent.They have really good panchan (side-dishes) and the Ssam (the lettuce and other greens served on the side to wrap the meet with) is the best I've had in LA. T Their other korean dishes are really good also. It used to be another restaurant which was not so good.
