Punjab Indian Palace, Riverside at Tyler
Super good buffet and a great lunch time price. I have been going there for a while, and I am never disappointed... The chicken tika masala and the aloo gobi were awesome.
Mimi's Cafe, Moreno Valley at Day Street
Usually I enjoy Mimi's, this time around the service was horrible for brunch. Though the food was outstanding. I had their berry stuffed french toast, and Sebastien had the crab cake Benedict... the holandaise sauce had lemon in it, which made the crab cakes taste lighter, despite all the calories. In general all of it was fantastic.
Barcelona is a cute tapas bar and restaurant in pasadena right on Colorado. It is the perfect place to have drinks and people watch but it is the worse place to go eat at. The prices are ridiculously inflated and the food is quite unimpressive, except for their cheese and wine selection. We had their cured meet and cheese platter, and the red pepper pesto and cheese bread with sangria. Our bill was ridiculously high and not worth it.
Louise's Trattoria, Pasadena
This place was fantastic. From our service to the food, to the prices and the variety- I was super impressed. It is quite cute inside, and the design aesthetic is ridiculously clean and fresh. They have preselected courses for $20.00 and that includes a glass of house wine.
The bread they serve there isn't your classic sourdough or baguette, instead it is a foccacia with onions and thyme smothered in butter. Served with olive oil and balsamic vinegar. We ate through two bread baskets.
From the preselected meals I had the house salad that had garbanzo beans in it with a fresh lemon Cesar dressing, the chicken marsala that was sweet with a light gravy, mashed potatoes, and grilled vegetables finished with tiramisu, all accompanied by a glass of their white wine. Sebastien had the same salad, chicken parmigiana (which i tasted and was very moist and cheesy), and pasta with garlic and butter, tiramisu accompanied by a red glass of wine.
Everything was fantastic, and the food was outstanding- I recommend everyone go eat there if you are in the area.
