Took a bit of a walking tour around parts of Pasadena today, culminating in this nifty Yucatan style Mexican restaurant called El Portal. Very delicious eats. They had cochinita pibil.
Yes, the chef is still alive.
Yes, I will marry you if you know what movie I’m talking about.
After some hot salsa, cool margaritas and a split Yucatan sampler platter, we decided to walk around a little bit more. This place reminded me a lot of Diagon Alley, done California style and I think when referring to it as a place to go, that’s what we are going to call it.
Oh yes, these are a few of my favorite things. And how delighted I was when I walked out the other side onto Colorado Blvd and discovered a few more of my favorite things…
The little tea shop wasn’t serving hot tea, but they had a huge selection of loose leaf teas and all manner of teaware.
Something tells me we’ll be heading back to that stretch of Colorado Blvd pretty soon.
