Located next to Osawa, this Southeast Asian spot is a great place for an upscale meal in Downtown Pasadena. The menu is mostly Indonesian, and some standouts include the char kway teow (stir-fried rice noodles) with sweet sausage and prawns, and nasi goreng - crab fried rice with chicharron gremolata. The food here balances spicy, sweet, and vinegary very well, and chances are, you’ll be tempted to order way more than you need. But portions are huge, so stick to one or two things per person.
