Lunchtime at One Colorado
Lunch time at One Colorado is one of our favorite moments here. If you’re not dining in, and the weather permits we suggest asking for your lunch to-go and enjoying it outside underneath the trees or at the Food Districts new patio next to Goldbug.
The Food Districts newest member, Dirt Dog brought all the goods to Pasadena. You must try the Green Gog with chimichurri sauce. Head there extra hungry so you can dig in into their Elote Fries which are loaded with corn, cotija cheese and bacon. Don’t sleep on the fried Oreos with horchata whipped cream. Its everything you’ve always dreamt of and more. Insert fire emojis here!
For a vegan delight, we love Sage Bistro’s Raw Bowl. It’s a completely raw dish that makes your taste buds dance. It’s all about the fresh sliced apples and the cashew dill “cheese.” For our pizza lovers, try their Heirloom Tomato & Garlic pizza. Add some avocados to make it extra special.
Sushi Roku’s cold appetizers are perfect to enjoy with your favorite sushi. Must tries: Spice Cucumber Sunomono, Seaweed Salad, Seared Albacore and the Toro Carpaccio. Sushi Roku also has delish lunch specials for an amazing price. We always go for their Bento Box which you can customize to your taste buds or their Sushi Six Assortment.
Il Fornaio introduces new menu items each month, so we suggest asking your server for their current specials. We (over) indulge in their fresh house-made bread that you dip in olive oil and balsamic vinaigrette. Their Insalata Regina is an arugula salad with capers, raisins that you can top with either ahi tuna, salmon, shrimp, chicken or carpaccio. We won’t let pasta go unrecognized and you can’t go wrong with the Tagliatelle Alla Bolognese, a ribbon pasta with ragu & Grana Padano. Delizioso!
There is always room for dessert, and this is a fact. Head to Salt & Straw for a scoop of the most decadent ice cream flavors on a fresh waffle cone (that you can smell all the way from the courtyard). Or there’s always Pasadena favorite 21 Choices where you can mix in your most loved sweets or fruits for a custom frozen yogurt treat. Talk about a satisfying lunch!
