Old Pasadena is filled with so many historic sites, secret thru-ways and bright alleys, all of which hide some of the best ethnic restaurants in town. As this tour takes you on a walk through them all, you’ll explore the foods and the people behind these restaurants, and learn about the area as it developed from an orange grove to what you see today.
The Old Pasadena Food Tour specializes in the various ethnic cuisines in the area. You’ll try Middle Eastern, Peruvian, Asian, and Oaxacan foods, plus enjoy Italian gelato and a lovely tea bar. You may also get to visit a store that specializes in olive oil and one of the best chocolatiers in town, plus a kitchen that focuses on soap instead of food. Along the way you’ll get to explore all the hidden alleyways and courtyards that you probably missed every time you drove through this beautiful and historic city.

The tours at Melting Pot Tours have lots of great spots and amazing, independently owned eateries to explore, so be sure to take a few of these great tours.
Of course a great afternoon date like this deserves the right car. Pick up your date in the 2013 C63 AMG Coupe from Mercedes-Benz of Encino. This stunning car is the best way to arrive in style as you enjoy the opulence and luxury that the Mercedes-Benz provides. Plus it is the best accompaniment to a romantic afternoon date.
