Welcome to Pasadena!


It is great to have you here in the city that I love so much. I wanted to welcome you home to Pasadena and since I know you are only in town for just a limited time, I went through the trouble of making a list of places that I recommend for your dining pleasure.  I figure I would keep it simple.  I named 3 to 4 spots for each category and along with the address, I hyperlinked their website or yelp page for you.  I truly hope you enjoy your stay in Pasadena and if you happen to have a question about the city feel free to tweet me at @Mr_Pasasdena and I will do my best to point you in the right direction:
