THRILLIST — The Pasadena Restaurants & Bars That Are Worth the Drive on the 110N — by Alexandra Pastron
While Pasadena may sometimes seem like it has nothing to offer beyond the Rose Bowl, the Rose Parade, one of the best breakfast burritos ever, and secret German bars, there are actually plenty of other reasons to hop on the 110N. These are those reasons: the best places to eat, drink, brunch, and booze in Pasadena.
Best hot dog: Dog Haus
93 E Green St & 105 N Hill Ave
At Dog Haus, everything is served on toasted King’s Hawaiian rolls (you know, those sweet rolls that glisten as if touched by the butter gods) with endless genius topping combinations like the Sooo Cali (wild arugula, spicy basil aioli, crispy onions, avocado, and tomato) and the Tae Kwon Dog (bulgogi glaze, kimchi, a fried egg, and Korean chili powder). Bonus: at the Old Town location, you can also choose from the rotating selection of 20+ beers on offer and grab a seat outside at the biergarten.
