Yes, it was hot outside but at Blockheads Shavery in Pasadena the green tea shaved ice was like eating snow and the effect – following the comforts of Irish fish and chips, Japanese crispy fried chicken and Vietnamese sandwiches stuffed with barbecued pork or beef or pate — was invigorating, as well as awakening. Alas, it was the end of Metro’s second bus Tour de Food, in partnership with Zocalo Public Square and KCRW, from Pasadena on Metro Local 260 to Monterey Park and back. That left 35 diners faced with the challenge of deciding what to eat for dinner (Nothing!) and how to describe what was for some their first ever ride on a Metro bus (Easy!). As with the previous Saturday tour, the June 20 ramble was led by food lover and blogger Javier Cabral, author of #MyLACommute, which appears on metro.net and zocalopublicsquare.org. It provided a chance to sample some unfamiliar restaurants, meet new people and enjoy the variety that makes L.A. great … including a welcome AC-cooled 260 bus on a sunny afternoon.
Here’s the full story – including restaurant names and locations – as posted on the Zocalo Public Square site.
